Let your amazing adventure begin. Embrace the sights, sounds, and rhythm of Africa as you set foot on the time eternal African soil of Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe.
Experience the warmth and friendliness of the Zimbabweans as you arrive at the A’Zambezi River Lodge nestled on the banks of the Zambezi River. This two-storey lodge with its peaceful setting, sparkling blue swimming pool and resident racey warthogs, will be your home from home for the next three nights. It is also the perfect location from which to explore the tourist mecca of Victoria Falls – with the experience of its street lined craft and curio stores as well as a variety of activities and adventures on offer to its visitors.
Relax and be transported to another world of gentle lapping waters as the Zambezi river plays host to your sunset cruise and dinner under the stars. Be overwhelmed by the sights and sounds of Africa as the luxury boat gently cruises along this mighty river. The wild roaming animals gather on the waters’ edge as the African sun bids adieu with its fiery palette of colours and a vast array of birdlife dip and dive for your attention.
More leisurely experiences await you during this stay as you set off armed with good walking shoes and peaked cap in hand to view the rushing waters of the Victoria Falls. Here you will be enthralled by your first encounter of the surging waters and rising mist of the Victoria Falls or mighty Mosi -o-Tunya (Smoke that Thunders) one of the continents’ greatest and most-visited attractions. Wander along the bush-lined winding spray drenched paths that lead you on the spirit of discovery to the breathtaking views of this masterpiece of nature.
Of course, no visitor can afford not to partake in traditional African meals at the famous Boma (place of Eating)– or learn the traditional way of drumming!
This is an authentic and amazing introduction to African culture which offers a wide array of dishes to suit any palate. This is a truly unforgettable experience!
Take one last safari with a daytrip to Chobe National Park in Botswana, a mere 1hour and 40 minutes’ drive from Victoria Falls. This will be a day filled with excitement of close encounters with the wild kind. Elephants tend to be the main attraction in Chobe National Park, but visitors are also likely to spot the stately meandering Giraffe, the skittish Red Lechwe, stare in awe at the snapping jaws of the Nile Crocodile; a bloat of growling hippos on the Chobe River, and even an encounter with royalty itself, the mighty Lion! You will view the magnificent Chobe game by water (Boating Safari) and on land (Game Safari Vehicle). A tasty barbeque lunch is served on the unique Floating Restaurant located in the middle of the Chobe river.
So, sit back, relax, and enjoy the meal whilst in awe of the breath-taking views, prolific game, and indigenous birdlife of the region, all whilst the distinctive call of the African Fish Eagle resonates as it takes flight.
Just around midday, as the sun reaches its highest point of orbit, your plane will touch down on the gently steaming airport tarmac. A Flame of Africa representative will be on hand to usher you into the magical world of Victoria Falls, an intoxicating mix of fiery falls and wildlife, fine dining and dusty roads begging to be explored.
We will then escort you to your destination, The A’Zambezi River Lodge. The A’Zambezi is the only hotel situated on the banks of the infallible Zambezi River, and as such offers a truly unique accommodation experience. Its serene and tranquil setting provides the ideal escape from everyday stresses and strains as guests are soon enthralled by the surrounding African bush life and winding sensuality of the infallible Zambezi.
At 15h30, you will be conveyed to the mighty Zambezi, where you will board the pontoon to enjoy a two-hour sunset cruise. There is no river that entices and mesmerizes quite like this one, and its charm soon draws all who sail on her into an ethereal nether world of fiery sunset colours, African greens revealing the incredible river wildlife, and grey-blue streams of river water. All senses are heightened and delighted, especially when the boat draws close to the legendary spray of the Falls. Please bring a light jersey as well as your camera for the many photographic opportunities aboard. This cruise does include finger snacks, beer, wine, local spirits, and soft drinks for added enjoyment.
Dinner will be served at 19h30, you will enjoy a unique dining experience on the wrap-around deck at the Amulonga, an award-winning, open-air restaurant which overlooks the intoxicating waters of the Zambezi. The cuisine on offer is a tasteful mix of modern and African cuisines, offset to the beat of traditional entertainment and performance that enhance the incredible dining experience.
Breakfast will be served early, to accommodate an 08h00 collection for a two-hour guided tour of the awe-inspiring Victoria Falls. No photograph or video clip can adequately reveal the reality of these Falls – which reach their zenith toward May every year. Prepare to overwhelm all five senses as you walk along the wet and paved paths, smell the sounds of the cascading water, hear the intermittent calls of the exotic birds as they dart in and out of the vibrant vegetation, tantalizing you with flashes of colour. This is truly Nature’s supreme masterpiece, and the sheer power of the Falls will inspire and humble every visitor. Look out for the Big Tree, and various points of historic interest pointed out by your Guides, who will also provide fascinating detail of the flora, fauna, bird and wildlife that surround your Vic Falls experience. Raincoats will be provided where needed, and Guides are equipped to assist clients with photographic opportunities along the tour. From this multi-sensory experience, guests will then be provided with an afternoon of leisure to either relax and enjoy the comforts of their hotel facilities; or engage in the many optional Victoria Falls activities available for tourists.
At 19h00, you will be escorted to the famous, traditional Boma Dinner, a three-hour-long experience that will leave you replete and engorged with exotic flavours! Be prepared for far more than an ethnic culinary experience, as the dinner provides guests with a true cultural experience, beginning with a Shona and Ndebele greeting which invites you to engage in the handwashing ceremony. The meal is preceded by a sampling of potent tribal beer and snacks. The excellent cuisine includes a variety of game dishes as well as traditional dishes peculiar to the Zimbabwean culture. Each course enjoyed under the spectacular African night sky is enhanced by a feast of unending entertainment which ranges from traditional dancers to a Sangoma, or storyteller, an expert in local folklore and heritage. You may also opt to have your fortune told by the all-knowing local fortune teller.
Linger in this magical African world a while before departure and enjoy a leisurely breakfast before preparing for your onward journey. A Flame of Africa representative will be on hand to facilitate the transfer across the border into Botswana and on to Mowana Safari Lodge and Spa. Nestled on the banks of the vast Chobe River, the Lodge effortlessly blends luxury and nature into a sensory delight, offering African comfort at its best with superb hospitality, excellent cuisine, and luxurious accommodation.
At 15h00, you will be collected to embark on the Chobe Sunset Cruise which takes three hours, with completion at 18h00. This cruise is known to be the highlight of the Chobe experience, offering an emotive and visual experience like no other.
The boats are fully equipped to facilitate game viewing into areas that the larger boats are unable to enter. Guests are invited into the wonder of all things great and small resident to the Chobe and enjoy an intimate and personal experience of all that comprises the river’s fascinating habitat. Please be sure to bring your cameras, binoculars, sunscreen and, in the winter season, something warm to cover up. If you have a particular favourite, please do pre-order your drinks requests with the boat guide prior to departure.
Dinner will be served at your leisure between 19h00- and 22h00 at the Serondela Restaurant. Both local and international cuisine is catered for at the restaurant, buffet style. For those wanting the adventure to extend to their dinner plate, try the African flavours of game dishes, or even the notorious delicacy of Mopane worms. The more traditional palate has the option of comfort food such as roasts and oxtail stews for order.
It’s an early start at 06h00 for the awesome three-hour experience of the Chobe Game Drive, which runs through The Chobe Game Reserve, an 11 700 km2 wildlife reserve, truly one of Africa’s wildlife gems and one of the greatest game reserves in southern Africa, famous for the number of elephants that reside there. Estimates vary on the elephant population, but what is guaranteed is that you will witness the unforgettable and humbling sight of these vast and majestic herds, sometimes as large as a few hundred, ranging through the reserve. Sightings of predators such as lions, leopards and wild dogs are common, so prolific are they, that the area has been called the Galapagos of Africa. In order to ensure your experience is as wonderful as it should be, please pack binoculars, cameras, and a windbreaker.
Appetites can be appeased at the Serondela Restaurant with a buffet breakfast served until 10h00. This includes both American and English style dishes as well as fresh fruit and juice.
Prepare for a 11h00 collection to depart on The Chobe Explorer. This full-day excursion departs from the Flame of Africa Jetty. The satisfying aroma of freshly brewed coffee and muffins welcome you aboard the triple-decker vessel.
The spacious Chobe Explorer offers a restaurant on the ground floor, a lounge with comfortable couches and occasional chairs on the middle floor with an observation deck situated on the top floor. Please note there are full toilet facilities aboard.
Lunch is served aboard at midday and is a traditional braai (barbeque) which includes three meat choices, a variety of salads, traditional stews and side dishes of rice or pap (traditional porridge) as well as dessert. All drinks, except for spirits are available for guests.
Enjoy a once in a lifetime experience of a cruise around Sedudu Island, rich in-game, and steam up the river all the way to Sirendela, without the hassle of any immigration formalities.
The return voyage is a pleasant ending to the journey, with light savoury snacks on offer. Expect to disembark around 18h00.
Dinner will be served between 19h00-22h00.
The day will begin once again at 06h00, where you will be able to repeat the incredible and unpredictably variable experience of the Chobe Game Drive. Breakfast will be served on your return until 10h00.

ZIMBABWE– Victoria Falls
At the heart of this tourist mecca, is The Victoria Falls. One of The Seven Natural Wonders of the world. Its pounding waters create the mist that gave rise to its local name, Mosi-oa-Tunya (the Smoke that Thunders).
This quaint, safe tourist town with its street lined craft and curio stores has played host to decades of travellers (Dr David Livingstone, among its most famous). It is the perfect base for extreme activities like white water rafting, bungee jumping etc. However, the tame of heart is not neglected either, with much on offer; safaris, guided Falls walks, helicopter rides and the list goes on. Little wonder with a rainforest as back drop that this is prolific bird territory, where wild animals roam freely. Step back in time and experience raw creation….
