Victoria Falls in a Nutshell

4 days from £1060pp 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. Both the elephant interaction and meeting Sylvester the cheetah ambassador have a strong conservation and education message to the activity. 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.
