About
Instead of immediately embarking on that arduous climb at the end of an amazing day of rafting adventure from rapids #1 to #21, seize the opportunity to camp overnight in the depths of the gorge on one of the pristine riverside beaches used exclusively for Shearwater clients. Enjoy complete peace and serenity as the light fades and the starry African blanket is revealed. Raft again next day.

We booked the jet boat experience. The website doesn’t really mention this requires a very steep (using ladders) climb down into and back out of the gorge. We managed it ok, and the views were spectacular, but some other guests had to decide not to do the trip because they couldn’t manage the walk, so beware of that fact.

The boat then drove to the base of the waterfall which was spectacular.

However we then had an incident which was very dangerous and we are lucky nobody was more seriously injured. The boat is a hard jet boat with no harnesses, restraints or padding. This type of boat should NOT be driven to jump in the air as there is nothing to prevent passengers from being thrown from their seats. The driver “jumped” over a very large rapid and we were all thrown in the air despite us following the instructions to sit down and hold on to the bar. My partner and I landed very heavily (I even had whiplash the next day) and the passenger next to us was thrown at force onto the metal bar and was quite badly injured - I believe had had to go for an X-ray and seemed to be in a lot of pain.

The views were amazing and this has the potential to be a fantastic experience but ONLY if the boat is driven properly, or padding or proper restraints are put in place for passengers. The potential for serious injury or even to be thrown from the boat is huge as all you have to hold on to is a slippery metal bar with no grips that you have to lean forwards to even reach. No matter how strong you are that bar doesn’t stop you rising up and being thrown back down onto the hard seat hurting your back, neck or worse depending on how you land.

We had an amazing Guide called Smart. His insight into the Falls, it’s history and the local culture and people made our experience one of the best ever. Top that with the wonder that is Mosi-oa-Tunya, and you have a recipe for an unforgettable day.

We had a lovely time with our guide Tom. We had only 4 hours to spend as we had other plans at 1100. So he took us to a nearby national park in Victoria Falls area. The safari vehicle was awesome for viewing animals and scenery! Tom was very knowledgeable about the area and animals including birds! We had a nice surprise as Tom pulled into a viewing area with raised hut. We had tea and muffins and watched as animals came to the water hole for drink! Then returned us in time for us to go to our next activity! We were limited to the amount of animals we saw, but that was not Tom's fault as our time restriction affected where we could go for Safaris. The only reason I give it a 4 instead of a 5 is because of the park again our schedule is the reason for that. Tom was great!! Ask for him if/ when you use their services/ company!

We booked three last minute safaris with Muzie at the Avani Resort. The first was was a morning safari to Zimbabwe (quick border crossing first thing in the morning) with a great guide and engaging driver and our first sight of a sable antelope. In the afternoon we did a fantastic game drive and walk with white rhino in the Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park. There was a short, torrential rainstorm during our drive and after this the game were even more plentiful, including a hippo wandering by the side of the road, a crocodile on the road, large herd of wildebeest, a family of warthogs, zebra, velvet monkeys, and impala. Then we went with a ranger to the rhino area: what an experience to wander near six of these incredible animals. Our final safari was the day trip to Chobe in Botswana (make sure you get a Kaza visa on entry into Zambia which enables you to do all these trips) . After the car, boat and safari jeep, we had crossed the two borders and arrived at the Chobe Safari Lodge where our boat safari departed from. The amount of game that we saw on the safari was impressive (lizards, warthog, impala, large herd of cape water buffalo, hippopottamus both in and out of the water, and a large number of elephant families coming down to the water. Our charming captain ensured that we had enough time to enjoy the animals before she moved on to another vantage point. After an okay buffet lunch back at the lodge, we went on a game drive with the entertaining David. This is where the number of elephants became almost overwhelming, with family after family walking past us, grazing by the water or inland and we came across one family sleeping. When we stopped for a cold drink there were even elephant within 5 meters of us. In addition to the animals we saw on the river safari, we saw giraffe, kudu and eagles. We were delighted with each of these safari and recommend the company.

We stayed in Victoria Falls town and asked them Chobe Day Trip.
They were very polite and completely on time.
About payment, they came our hotel with card machine and we paid by card.
We didn't need to pay in advance.

We were together with my son 6 years old but we could pass Botswana border without any problem. We brought Birth Certificate in English and their staff supported us at the border immigration.
We saw a lot of animals which live in Chobe National Park.
It was amazing experience. Our family cannot forget that day.

Getting to Chobe from Victoria Falls involves crossing borders. Worth it? I think so in retrospect. Te park has two characteristics. The first is the up-front in-your-face animal spotting. However, the second is different. The Zambezi flows through the preserve and the animals in droves aim towards it, going through the brush in packs and lines. So you get an open vista of different herds on a plain as far as the eye can see into the distance. Quite different from the routine either in the Serengeti or South Africa. Consider it for a day trip while at the Falls

We booked a jetboat tripped which was cancelled due to an engine break. They refunded the money (more than 400 USD) to our credit card but the money was never credited, they just kept the money .. ☹️They did not replied to our emails, so I approached my credit card bank and asked them for help. They they managed to get the money finally back.

As part of our G-Adventures tour Clyde doubled as our driver and guide at Victoria Falls. Polite and knowledgeable.

Patience was our tour leader for our three days in Vic Falls. She’s the best. Found as the airport made our stay a pleasure and ensured we had no problems at the airport when we left. She even provided some post visit help to us. She is great!

I took the sunset cruise out of Victoria Falls. I was picked up at the Kingdom Hotel. My ride was prompt, the people picking me up were friendly. We stopped at a couple of other hotels, then we were off to the boat. Boarding was very quick and easy. The boat I was on had two levels, I stayed down on the main level. There was a bathroom and a small bar set up for purchasing drinks. I saw a number of hippos. I will not say this is spectacular, but it is a nice thing to do.
