What people are saying about Victoria Falls Town

Nothing goes perfectly planned but the guides (Simon and fortune and boat crew) worked hard to meet the program and tackle unannounced changes created my the management and other not so easy going tourists. Overall, they make up for today’s scarcity of big animals. Suggestions: made 1 option to pay for entry fees in advance.. Also, I noticed that with the heat and humidity kids and some adults can get tired. Perhaps, under the instructions remind customers to pack light snacks and small energy drinks for eventualities.

Booked the sunrise to sunset tour to chobe national park so that I could get in early before the crowd. Got to see zebras on the way. There is no lion in Chobe National park. If you must see, don't choose here. Got to see giraffes, elephants, hippos, impalas and gibbons everywhere! The sunset setting on the river was amazing.

Velmi příjemná a obohacující plavba po Zambezi, výborná atmosféra, spousta informací, skvělé občerstvení. Viděli jsme z poměrně velké blízkosti mnoho zvířat i ptáků, průvodci byli velmi vstřícní.

Fantastic being on a small boat to see some amazing wildlife and beautiful sunset. The crew were excellent - informative and great service. Great selection of quality drinks and snacks.

All activities were done on time according to the program. The guides are professional (Simon especially)
