WIN: A six-night holiday to Vic Falls worth over R65 000!

Posted by Lauren Dold on 15 May 2022

The mighty Zambezi has been the setting of adventure and exploration for centuries and now modern travellers can experience the wonder of this wilderness from all angles.

Victoria Falls, Africa’s Eden

Tsowa Safari Island is an idyllic off-grid hideaway in the middle of the Zambezi River. The pristine island is within Zambezi National Park, surrounded by undisturbed indigenous forest with abundant birdlife. Guests can enjoy amazing access to wildlife, courtesy of a game drive, on a sunset boat ride or even from the hammock outside each of the eco-sensitive tents. The whole camp blends gorgeously into the surroundings, giving guests the chance to feel at one with the environment, the river always within view.

In a quiet, leafy suburb on the outskirts of Victoria Falls town, 528 | Victoria Falls boutique guest house is just 3km from the Falls. Each of the seven bedrooms is adorned with Zimbabwean art, insta-worthy wallpaper and beautiful finishings. The swimming pool and Treetops bar mean guests needn’t go far for a refreshing sundowner.

Around the corner, Shongwe Lookout offers handsome, well-proportioned guest rooms in a beautifully landscaped garden. From the unique eponymous lookout tower, you can catch dazzling views that stretch all the way to the immense plume of “smoke” rising from the Falls. A dumb waiter pulley system means you can order drinks and food from the excellent restaurant and bar below without missing a moment of sunset action.

Fastjet will get you from Joburg to Victoria Falls in less than two hours, and Wild Horizons will provide a healthy kick of adrenaline with a swing or zipline across the Batoka Gorge.

Fastjet flies into Victoria Falls from Johannesburg and Kruger Mpumalanga Airport in Mbombela.
