A once-in-a-lifetime experience in Victoria Falls

Oct 15, 2018, Author: Bianca Spinner

HJ, gear up for an adventure because this month we’re celebrating Africa. A continent that most South Africans have sadly not yet explored. If you thought this trip was beyond your reach, think again. You don’t even need to travel fourteen hours to get there because just a sheer one and a half hours away your first destination in Zambia, the sublime landscape of Victoria Falls awaits. Then just a short drive and a ferry trip and you’ll arrive at your second destination in Botswana, Kuzuma Forest Nature Reserve. Prepare to be wowed by bounty and beauty.


Stay at Avani Victoria Falls Resort

Location location location. This hotel is all about its irresistible position. Just a short five-minute walk from the majestic Victoria Falls lies this authentically charming African style hotel. Don’t expect frills and flamboyance but rather a truly traditional experience. You’ll be captivated by the allure of its authenticity as well as the colours and textures of the African décor and design. We highly appreciated the simple and romantic flair of the hotel with its 212 rooms and although our room was neither vast nor ostentatious we can guarantee you’ll hardly spend time in it. The rooms are comfortable and cosy and have a gorgeous view of the hotel’s gardens, rivers and walkways.


Must do:

A 15-minute helicopter ride overlooking the falls. This scenic view from the air is a once in a lifetime experience.

Safari cruise along the Zambezi River – picture a safari experience, whilst watching the orange and yellow hues of the sunset plunge under the horizon as elephants trod across the water. This needs to be on the top of your bucket list and you’re guaranteed extraordinary photo opportunities.

A safari experience on horseback. An experienced guide will take you through the national park as you attempt to spot a variety of game.
