Victoria Falls has plenty of activities on offer ranging from the more sedate tours of the edge of the Falls to the more extreme bungee jumping and white water rafting. There is literally something for everyone in this great little border town.

Your base for the first two nights will be at Ilala Lodge which is situated within a short stroll of the entrance to The Falls Nature reserve. Your travel planner will be able to brief you and pre book all your activities in the Falls from helicopter rides, curio shopping trips and even an elephant back safari if it takes your fancy!

On day three you will be collected in an air conditioned vehicle and driven the through to the Zimbabwe/Botswana border which is less than hour away. After the border formalities its a short drive to the collection point to be taken by boat across to The Pangolin Voyager… will arrive just in time for some high tea as the Houseboat cruises down the Chobe River.

While onboard you are free to chose whatever activities you feel like doing on the day. We offer water based safaris on our tender boats (fitted with state of the art photo chairs). Please enquire if you would like a photographic host or use of camera equipment during your stay. You can also spend the day fishing or on a cultural visit and walks on nearby Impalila Island. Should you wish to just relax and take it easy the top deck is the perfect place to do this. With several sun loungers and a mixture of shade and sun its the perfect place to relax with good book and watch the world go by.

The chefs onboard will ensure that you are well fed with delicious snacks and meals throughout the day and the complimentary bar is open all day to quench your thirst!

At the end of your stay we can either take you back to Victoria Falls or organise an onward itinerary perhaps to the Okovango Delta from nearby Kasane Airport. if you wanted to go further afield we also offer itineraries to other South African Reserves for more land based game viewing such as Madikwe. We also have a sister company in sunny Cape Town should you decide to visit the Mother City with its sandy beaches, top restaurants and nearby vineyards.
