One of Africa's most popular combinations is a South Africa and Victoria Falls twin-centre holiday. Most commonly combining the Big 3 - Cape Town, Kruger and Victoria Falls - but not limited to these, this holiday offers the chance to combine the region's 'must sees' in a seamless pairing.
South Africa is a wonderfully diverse country, with many easily combinable destinations to choose from. An excellent road network, as well as regular and affordable domestic flights ensure that visitors can travel around South Africa with ease.
Best known for its Big 5 safaris, South Africa offers a host of private game reserves and national parks across the country. When choosing to combine a safari with Victoria Falls, we often recommend that our guests stay in a lodge in one of the exclusive private reserves surrounding the Kruger National Park. Not only does this provide one of the best safari experiences on offer in the country, but the nearby Kruger Mpumalanga Airport offers direct flights to and from Livingstone Airport in Zambia, an easy driving distance from the Victoria Falls.
Additionally, there are 3 airports which directly link the Kruger region to Cape Town Airport, allowing visits to this magnificent city, as well as its surrounding areas such as the Cape Winelands region, South Africa's culinary capital and picturesque Garden Route.
South Africa's Johannesburg's OR Tambo Airport also acts as a hub connecting South Africa with its neighbouring countries including both Zambia and Zimbabwe for visits to Victoria Falls. Using Johannesburg as the connection allows for even more South African combinations such as the game reserves and endless beaches of KwaZulu Natal and the malaria-free safaris in Madikwe Game Reserve, the Waterberg and the Eastern Cape.
One of the 7 natural wonders of the world, Victoria Falls is a bucket-list destination. The falls itself is a mile-wide gorge where the mighty Zambezi River roars over the lodge and drops 400 feet into the valley floor below. Visitors to the falls can view it from both Zambia and Zimbabwe (and easily cross between the border post).
The area surrounding Victoria Falls offers numerous activities including white water rafting, sundowner cruises, flights over the Falls in a microlight or helicopter, village visits, bungee jumping off the Victoria Falls Bridge, jet boating, horseriding, wildlife viewing and swims in Devil's Pool at the top of the Falls.
The most popular twin-centre South Africa and Victoria Falls tour is what is commonly known as the 'Big 3'. The Big 3 includes a visit to Cape Town, a Kruger safari and the Victoria Falls. This can be done at varying budgets and in a variety of routings. The Winelands region is often an added extra, should guests wish to expand their stay in the Cape region.
