Reputable tour company
Save

Hi, my husband and I are staying in Livingstone for a couple of days in March and would like to arrange tours with a reliable company as follows;

Day 1 (afternoon) - river cruise (possibly for sunset but doesn't have to be)

Day 2 Combined visit to both sides of the Falls. We'll be there in mid-March so not sure if we can actually get close on the Zimbabwean side but ideally, we'd really like to see the Falls from both sides. We're quite fit so no problem with walking, getting wet etc.

Late afternoon: 15-min helicopter ride.

Also: airport transfer but I imagine our hotel can arrange that...

Would be really grateful for any recommendations. Many thanks in advance.

For seeing both sides of the falls, you just need transfers to/from the Zim falls entrance which I would imagine your hotel could arrange. For other activities have a look here: https://www.victoriafalls-guide.net/victoria-falls-activities.html

I suspect your hotel can arrange all of this.

Thank you very much to both of you and thanks a million for the link, Penguin! That was exactly what I was looking for! I had read Boo's name before as a great contact to assist with arrangements but couldn't find the link again. We're really quite experienced and capable travellers but it will be great to have somebody advise us on the best activities in light of the time of year we are visiting (mid-March) and any border-related issues given that we only have a limited amount of time and will be based on the Zambian side. Thank you again!

Im a bit late to this but if you can stretch your helicopter flight time to include the gorges, I would. It's pretty spectacular and feels very 'Jurassic Park'.

You don't need a guide or tour to visit the falls at all.

We were there last July and visited both sides on our own.

Your hotel can book the sunset cruise for you.

Once you cross the border in Livingstone, it's a 20 minute walk to the Zim side of the falls.

Make sure you request for the Kaza Univisa upon arrival which let's you enter both Zambia and Zimbabwe.

I strongly recommend " The Lookout Cafe" for lunch on the Zimbabwean side. Amazing scenery and food. It's a 20 minute walk from the falls.

I am in Lvn right now. I met a great man - he is a taxi driver locally but also a teacher and has connections with your company’s. He arranged an amazing tour for us and took us everywhere and he is honest and super helpful. I can provide his phone number to call, I’d really recommend him rather than booking o line in advance- he will know best companies

Thank you, Marz! My husband and I are planning our visit for the coming March. Does he speak English? Could we have his phone number?

Taxi drivers in Zambia speak very good English.

How is your Nyanja ? 😁
