Itinerary Help in Victoria Falls

Jump to last reply

Hello! My boyfriend and I are (mid-20s) spending 2 days in Victoria Falls at the beginning of August. This is our first stop on a two week trip that includes 3 nights in Cape Town Winelands, 4 nights in Cape Town and a 3 night Safari in Kruger. With only 2 full days in Victoria Falls we are torn on how to make the best use of our time. We are considering the following activities:
-Helicopter of the falls
-Walking tour of the falls
-Elephant Back Safari
-Day trip to Chobe (includes river cruise and 3 hour game drive)

We have enough time to do 3 of the 4 above activities, but not all of them. We are leaning towards doing both the Helicopter tour and walking tour since the whole reason we are going to Zambia is to see the falls. Where we are torn is on the Chobe trip or Elephant Safari. We are doing a safari in Kruger, so we thought it would be interesting to have something to compare it to. We will have a chance to do an elephant ride in Kruger if we wanted, but it does not seem like the Elephant experience in Kruger is an actual safari. Any advice would be greatly recommended!

Our hotel, Royal Livingstone, has recommended we work with Falcon Safaris, but I can't find any reviews on them.

Thank you!
Jen
