How to choose African safari activities at the Victoria Falls

The Victoria Falls are heaven for all active and sport loving African safari travellers. The list of available activities goes from tours of the falls on foot, to boat tours, sundowner cruises, river safaris, swims, elephant rides, bungee jumps, cheetah encounters and much more. The only problem is time. Be careful when planning your Vic Falls activities, that it does not become a tight and stressful program and you need to look at the pictures afterwards to see what you’ve actually done, because you were only racing from one to another.

Stick to the essentials. Ask yourself what you would love to see and experience and then make a choice from the options to see exactly that. If you want to have the best view of the falls to photograph, do a helicopter flight, then explore them on foot and maybe, if possible a swim in Devil’s Pool. As you will have anyway a sundowner, book yourself on a sundowner cruise and the 2-night/3-day stay will already be over, but still with time to enjoy the hotel or resort where you are staying.

And if this not enough, you can always stay for longer.

Happy active Victoria Falls!
