Victoria Falls in a Nutshell

4 days from £1215pp plus international flights.

Many visitors to Victoria Falls stay for one or maybe two nights and leave without seeing all they wanted to. This three night stay at Elephant Camp affords you the opportunity to do a lot of the other activities that are on offer. There are activities covering all bases in this itinerary. A guided visit to the falls, followed by a sunset cruise on the Zambezi.

The elephant interaction has a strong conservation and education message. You can learn all about the work of the Victoria Falls Wildlife Trust and how they are making a difference. The lodge is a wonderful place to unwind and take in the vistas laid out before you, with the spray of the mighty falls on the horizon. You can spend time relaxing at the lodge or taking in the beautiful sunsets at Batonka Gorge. Before you go make sure you have time to visit the local village and meet the villagers and spend a little time with them. Birding and nature walks are offered at the camp too, so there really is something for everyone.

Touchdown at Victoria Falls Airport and you will be met and transferred to your lodge, Elephant Camp. It's just 15km to the Lodge and you can relax and enjoy the scenery along the way.
