Claire and I jetted off to Victoria Falls on 30 October 2017 with SA Airlink. We were met on arrival and taken to Victoria Falls Safari Lodge where we spent 1 night. It is a lovely hotel, and I recommend this for couples and families. The property has lots of stairs so not recommended for elderly clients.
This hotel has three room types, Lodge Standard rooms, Lodge Waterhole facing rooms and Lodge Waterhole facing suites. At 1 pm daily hotel guest can see the Vulture Culture Experience where the vultures are fed the leftover meat scraps from the restaurant.
In the late afternoon we were taken on a Sundowner Cruise on the Zambezi Royal, were we got to see crocodiles on the river bank, elephants crossing the river, whilst we enjoyed drinks and snacks onboard as the African sun set! We visited the Boma later that evening where we enjoyed Dinner and Drum show in the evening.
We got to experience a helicopter trip over the Falls which was amazing! You will be able to see from my photo's that each one tells their own story. This should be a ‘must do’ if you visit Vic Falls.
We then spend a few nights at the Elephant Camp where we were welcomed by Thulani and Himal Mathoo, the Manager. We stayed at The Elephant Camp West which caters for smaller groups and families.
We stayed in beautiful luxury tented suites with our own deck with a private plunge pool. This property is highly recommendable for couples, honeymooners, families etc.
We were taken on a safari drive and enjoyed cocktails and canapes at Batoka Gorge, where we joined in for the Elephant interaction and met Sylvester the Cheetah!
Sadly that wsa the end of our trip and we were transferred back to Victoria Falls International Airport for our flight back to SA.
It was a stunning 2-night trip to Vic Falls - jam packed and memories that will last a lifetime were made!
