Victoria Falls
The Smoke that Thunders

Known locally as Mosi-oa-Tunya, translated as The Smoke That Thunders, mighty Victoria Falls has been named one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World and is claimed to be the largest single sheet of failing water in the world. Located between Zambia and Zimbabwe, the Zambezi River widens to 1.7 kilometres and then the full width of the river plunges 108 metres down into the Zambezi Gorge, sending clouds of spray up to 500 metres in the air, helping to sustain the surrounding lush rainforest.

Zimbabwe Overland Safari Tours

Overland Budget Accommodation Upgrade Available

Our overland safaris to Zimbabwe are multi-country itineraries, combining the highlights of many of Africa's top destinations. With lots of overland safaris that start or finish in Victoria Falls, you can visit the famous waterfalls and enjoy adrenaline activities galore. Other highlights of our Zimbabwe overland safaris include wildlife rich Hwange National Park. You'll travel aboard our overland trucks that seat 28 - 30 travellers and carry all the equipment necessary for camping and cooking on the trip. On our camping safaris, group participation is crucial and you’ll assist with camp chores, preparation of meals and erecting & dismantling your tent. If you don’t mind getting your hands dirty, possess relative fitness, a relaxed attitude, and are not averse to the odd hiccup, then overlanding is for you.

Of the 3 - trip leader, cook and driver, Aaron the driver is by far the best. In terms of his driving but also he help us a whole lot in packing/unpacking or pitching our tents. The best personality by far and very likable by all of us”  

• Submitted 23 Nov 2015

The tour was fantastic value for money, its a camping tour and at times it was tough going travelling through intense heat and some hot sleepless nights, but you forget all the negatives when climbing Dune 45 and eventually seeing, and what you come to witness is the amazing African wildlife, seeing elephants giraffes zebras and of course a lioness trying to catch dinner will stick in our memory for a very long time. We are both in our early sixties and encourage other people of our age to get off those boring cruises and see the real world out there! Life is an adventure, go and have one.

Tour was well organised, food was great considering the circumstances, Moyo the guide was great nothing too much trouble for him to organise, and Steve the driver was fantastic. Would we do it again? YES.”
