About two thirds of the falls can be viewed from the Zimbabwean side and, while the falls are undoubtedly the star attraction, the area provides both adventure seekers and sightseers with plenty of opportunities to warrant a longer stay. Popular activities include scenic flights over the falls in helicopters or micro lights, bungee jumping off the Victoria Falls Bridge, white-water rafting (seasonal), and day trips to Chobe National Park. The town itself offers some excellent accommodation and restaurant options as well as an eclectic variety of African curios and authentic art sold by friendly Zimbabwean locals who are wonderfully welcoming and eager to help you enjoy your stay.

Zanzibar: Diamonds Mapenzi Beach Club Days 6 – 11
Rising up from the Indian Ocean approximately 25 miles from the Tanzanian coast, this idyllic archipelago consists of Zanzibar and Pemba islands as well as numerous smaller islets. Zanizibar Island (known locally as ‘Unguja’) is characterised by exquisite white sand beaches fringed by palm trees and lapped by turquoise waters lined with coral reefs brimming with an abundance of exotic marine life. This underwater paradise is a mecca for water sport enthusiasts who flock here for the excellent scuba diving, snorkeling, kayaking, windsurfing, water-skiing and sailing on traditional local dhows. The island’s cultural heart is its old city, Stone Town – said to be the only functioning ancient town in East Africa – with its maze of narrow alleyways, lively bazaars, mosques and ornate Arab houses. Whether you choose to spend your time: exploring the charming boutiques, bars and restaurants of Stone Town; lounging in a deckchair by the pool of a luxurious resort on the exclusive private island of Mnemba, or hopping from island to island to snorkel or scuba dive, there really is never a dull moment in the island paradise of Zanzibar.
