6 days – Zimbabwe-Botswana
Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe – Kasane
Day 1, 2 & 3: The Kingdom Hotel, Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe
Quatermains, The Rapid Pool, The Wild Thing and The Pit sound like titles of movies or books not quite suitable for all ages. They are in fact the names of the four bars in African Sun’s closest hotel to the Victoria Falls, The Kingdom at Victoria Falls. This is a fun-filled resort hotel aimed unashamedly at the tourist who wants to take in the majesty and excitement of one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World. Complete with its own food court offering a wide choice of relaxing or quick meals, suiting all ages, The Kingdom at Victoria Falls also offers three swimming pools and a toddlers pool, a children’s play area and, for the ladies, planning a “night on the town” or a visit to the resort’s own casino, a spa and beauty parlour. The architecture draws on the ancient Kingdom of Munhumutapa, with great domes, pillars, and bridges over the many water features, The Kingdom’s fun-filled atmosphere gives guests a unique blend of African tradition and Western leisure.
Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe
One of the original natural wonders of the world, the Victoria Falls is a World Heritage Site and an extremely popular tourism attraction. Known locally as ‘The Smoke that Thunders’ this spectacle is accessible from both Zambia and Zimbabwe and it is an ideal place to combine game viewing and water sports. There is excellent fishing, a terrifying bungee jump and arguably the best commercial white water rafting in the world.
Day 4 & 5: Water Lily Lodge, Kasane
Water Lily lodge is carefully designed to get perfectly integrated with its wonderful natural surroundings. A small and private lodge catering for a maximum of 20 guests. Facilities ensure guests quality accommodation, and the staff, exquisite yet close treatment to visitors. Their commitment is to make your African dream come alive. Accommodation consists of 10 spacious rooms, each with 2 single beds. The rooms have been built around one side of a central circular courtyard on 2 floors and are situated on the back of the lodge, which makes it very quiet and great for a good nights sleep. They also face the gardens as well as overlooking the mighty Chobe River. Popular activities revolve around game drives into the Chobe National Park and boat cruises along the Chobe River along the shores of Chobe National Park. All excursions are lead by highly professional and knowledgeable guides who know all the animal activity hot spots. It is also possible to make day trips to Victoria Falls.
Kasane is almost part of the Chobe National Park as there are no boundary fences separating the village from the park. In fact, game such as elephant and hippo are often spotted in Kasane. If on the lookout for game in the area, pay a visit to the large, dead trees along the Sedudu Valley Road as they often act as temporary homes for leopards. These aren’t the only enticing trees in Kasane – the village is also the proud owner of an old baobab tree whose tree trunk was once a local prison. Kasane is the main town servicing Chobe and the Linyanti.
