Day 1: Victoria Falls

On your arrival at Victoria Falls Airport you will be transferred to Victoria Falls Hotel. The iconic Victoria Falls Hotel is the epitome of old-world glamour and sophistication, situated close to one of nature’s greatest spectacles—the mighty Victoria Falls. The hotel is over a century old and was originally built in 1904 as accommodation for the workers building the Victoria Falls Bridge. The bridge was the brainchild of Cecil John Rhodes who dreamt of a railway stretching from the Cape to Cairo. A steam train trip is a bucket list item when staying at the Victoria Falls Hotel as well as sipping G&T’s on the veranda during a famous Victoria Falls Hotel High Tea. The hotel has a private walkway that leads directly to the ‘Smoke that Thunders’. You will enjoy a guided tour of the majestic Victoria Falls. Known locally as Mosi-oa-Tunya (the smoke that thunders), tons of water plunge over a chasm that is nearly 2km wide, falling just over 100m in to the Zambezi River below. The shower of spray and the thunderous sound of the water can be heard for miles around. The tour takes you to the best view points of this iconic waterfall, allowing you to soak up the powerful and enigmatic atmosphere of Victoria Falls.

Built in 1904, in the gracious Edwardian style of the colonial era, this 5-star luxury hotel, which offers every modern convenience, is set in lush sub-tropical gardens within the Victoria Falls National Park.

Stanley’s Terrace, a famous rendezvous for Africa’s adventurers, offers clear views of the Victoria Falls Bridge, part of Cecil John Rhode’s ambitious plan to build a railway line from Cape to Cairo. Fondly known as the “Grand Old Lady of the Falls’, the Victoria Falls Hotel is one of Africa’s most celebrated and nostalgic hotels.

Without the professional, timeous and effortless support from Zelda and her team this historical event would have been impossible and probably sub-standard. I can highly recommend them for your next event – be it big or small.
