Feedback on Victoria Falls visit please

Jump to last reply

We will be visiting Victoria Falls as part of a longer Southern Africa trip in April. We will be there for two nights, staying at the Ilala Lodge. Our plan is as follows:

Day 1
- Arrive in Victoria Falls from JNB
- Sunset cruise on the Zambezi on board the Ra-Ikane

Day 2
- Helicopter tour first thing in the morning (Is the 30 minute tour significantly better than the 15 minute tour, justifying the higher price?)
- Morning visit to the Zimbabwean side of the falls (Several suggested that this could be done in a couple of hours. Please confirm.)
- Walk across the Victoria Falls Bridge.
- Afternoon visit of Zambian side (How much time?)
- Tea or drinks at the Royal Livingstone Hotel
- View of lunar rainbow on the Zambian side (What are the evening hours? Would we need to be on a tour?)
- Walk back across bridge and view lunar rainbow on the Zimbabwean side (What are the hours? A tour necessary?)

Day 3
- Morning departure for Chobe

Please confirm whether or not this is doable, weather permitting. If there's time, we may want to visit the craft markets. We're not interested in the adrenaline activities.

Thanks.
