Looking for an adventure that will take you off the beaten path? Our small group tour to South Africa’s Victoria Falls is the perfect way to explore this amazing region! Victoria Falls is the world’s largest and most-visited waterfall, with a height that equates to twice that of Niagara Falls. It is one of Africa’s greatest and most-visited attractions.
This tour will take you on an unforgettable journey to see the natural wonder of Victoria Falls. You’ll also get to experience the diverse culture and wildlife that make South Africa so special. For example, you can observe orphaned elephants at a private game reserve or endangered African penguins at the Cape Point Nature Reserve. There are also lots of activities such as jumping off the historic bridge and swimming in the devilishly named Devil’s Pool, white water rafting, bungee jumping, and more.
This is your chance for an unforgettable adventure in South Africa’s Victoria Falls! Here are some of the most exciting features of our tour:
The main event of the tour is visiting the world-famous Victoria Falls. As one of the world’s Seven Natural Wonders, it is a must-see for any traveler. You’ll get to experience the falls from multiple vantage points, including the iconic Knife-Edge Bridge.
It is easy to see why Victoria Falls are one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world. Victoria Falls offers plenty of options for relaxation, whether you’re in Victoria Falls Town on the Zimbabwe side or Livingstone on the Zambia side. A trip there is perfect for travelers of all ages and interests, with activities such as whitewater rafting, bungee jumping, and even a scenic helicopter ride over the falls. At Indus Travels, our Victoria Falls tour packages provide many recreational activities for tourists, some of which include:
For those looking for an adrenaline rush, bungee jumping off the South Africa Victoria Falls Bridge is a must. At 111 meters (364 feet) above the Zambezi River, it is one of the highest commercial bungee jumps in the world. New divers often perform a basic head-first dive, although more experienced divers attempt all sorts of flips, backflips, and inward tucks, some even incorporating a bicycle or kayak. This is an activity that is not for the faint of heart, but it is an incredible experience that you will never forget.
If you’re looking for an exhilarating experience, white water rafting on the Zambezi River is perfect for you. You’ll get to navigate your way through grade 5 rapids, which makes it one of the most challenging white-water rafting experiences in the world. This is a great activity for groups of friends or family members looking to have an adventure. With rafting trips running from both Zimbabwean and Zambian sides, you can relax knowing that the operators on both sides are professional.
However, the water level of the Zambezi River is completely controlled by rainfall, which has a significant influence on the white water rafting season. This is a critical detail to consider since each year’s rainfall varies, thus creating a unique river rafting experience.
Last but not least, keep in mind that to participate in white water rafting, you’ll need a certain degree of fitness. The hike out of the gorge is quite difficult, so you’ll need to be in good shape. Given this, guides have the right to refuse people with health issues or who they believe are unfit.
For those looking for a more relaxed experience, there are plenty of river cruises available on the Zambezi River. You can choose the sunset cruise, which is perfect for couples, or dinner cruises, which are great for families or groups of friends. There are also cruise options that include stops on Livingstone Island, so you can swim in the Devil’s Pool. No matter what type of cruise you’re looking for, you’re sure to find one that suits your needs.
For those looking for a thrill, abseiling down South Africa Victoria Falls is a must. At 108 meters (354 feet), it is one of the tallest commercial abseils in the world. The experience starts with a walk along the rainforest canopy, which offers stunning views of the falls. Once you reach the abseiling platform, you’ll be harnessed in and prepared for your descent. With a full-body harness keeping you secure, you experience the rush of repelling down in front of the thundering falls. The whole experience takes about an hour and 30 minutes, and it’s an unforgettable way to see the falls.
If you’re looking for a more relaxing activity, take a dip in the Devil’s Pool. This natural pool is located at the edge of the mighty Victoria Falls on Livingstone Island, provides stunning views of the falls, and is easily accessible through seasonal boat tours. It’s the perfect spot to relax and take in the beauty of nature. Keep in mind that Devil’s Pool is only accessible during certain times of the year.
The Livingstone Island boat excursions offered on most Victoria Falls tour packages are only available for seven months of the year, from June to December. In addition, swimming in the pool is safe when the Zambezi river isn’t flowing too high, with the best time being from mid-August to the end of December, and access being most certain in October and November.
It’s important to note that the level of water in the pool varies depending on rainfall upstream, with different levels from one year to the next. The local authorities close access when the level gets too high, which is usually from January 1st until some time in August. These regulations are put in place to protect both tourists and locals alike.
Is it safe to visit Victoria Falls?
South Africa Victoria Falls is a safe destination for travelers. However, it’s important to take the necessary precautions when participating in activities like white-water rafting and abseiling.

What should I pack for my trip to Victoria Falls – for a safari and the falls?
When packing for your trip to South Africa Victoria Falls, be sure to pack items that will protect you from the sun and insects. Long-sleeved shirts, pants, hats, and sunscreen are a must. You should also pack insect repellent and mosquito nets if you’re planning on spending time in the bush. In terms of what to wear to the falls themselves, be sure to pack a swimsuit and plenty of sunscreens. You might also want to pack a raincoat, as you’re likely to get wet from the spray of the falls.
How many days do you need to see Victoria Falls?
You can see the highlights of Victoria Falls in just two or three days. However, if you want to participate in activities like white-water rafting, abseiling, or swimming in the Devil’s Pool, you’ll need to allow for more time. You can also extend your stay to include a safari at Table Mountain, a tour of beautiful Cape Town, or other amazing sites such as the Chobe National Park.
