In fact, the hotel is so close to the action that when the Falls are in full flood, the spray can be seen from the hotel, hence the name ‘Sprayview’.

Convenient in-room amenities include air-conditioning, Wi-Fi, satellite television, tea and coffee making facilities, personal safes, hairdryers and universal plugs.

With over 50 fantastic activities to choose from, there are plenty of ways to keep busy in Victoria Falls. A haven for adventure-enthusiasts, this resort town offers everything from white water rafting and bungee jumping, to zip-lining across the Batoka Gorge and river boarding down the Zambezi. For a more relaxing experience, opt for a leisurely river cruise, a helicopter flight over the Falls, a walk through the various curio markets, or a half-day canoe trip. Making it easy for guests to enjoy a guided or self-guided tour of the ‘Smoke That Thunders’, the hotel offers guests a complimentary shuttle service to and from the rainforest entrance at designated times.

Victoria Falls Activities:
Victoria Falls is known as the adventure capital of Africa, and for good reason! Through Cresta Sprayview, arrange almost 50 Victoria Falls activities, including helicopter flights, bungee jumping, golfing, white water rafting, and Zambezi River cruises.
One of the most famous activities in this tourist hub is bungee jumping from the iconic Victoria Falls Bridge, connecting Zimbabwe and Zambia across the Batoka Gorge. The jump is considered one of the most beautiful in the world and features 111m of pure adrenaline against the backdrop of the mighty Falls. Other white-knuckle activities include the Gorge Swing, Flying Fox and the Zip Line.
Another ‘must-do’ Victoria Falls activity to try is white water rafting. Rafting is done below the Victoria Falls along a section of the Zambezi River with some of the finest Grade 5 rapids on the planet. The ride is wet and wild, but offers an experience unlike anywhere else on earth.
A trip to Victoria Falls wouldn’t be complete without a relaxing cruise along the Zambezi River. Zambezi cruises are one of the most highly recommended Victoria Falls activities to do during your stay. During the dry season, they offer excellent game viewing from a unique vantage point. In the wet season, you are promised excellent birding and breath-taking sunsets.
Victoria Falls is also an ideal base from which to explore the many surrounding game reserves and national parks. Game viewing at Hwange National Park in the dry season is exceptional and you can look out for at least 4 of the Big 5, as well as cheetah, sable and wild dog. The abundant Chobe National Park in Botswana – just an hour’s drive away, and the nearby Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park in Zambia also offer great game viewing options.

We travelled with Falcon Safaris in Zimbabwe and Botswana for 16 days. Falcon designed a wonderful trip with private guide to the most interesting sites in both countries. The organization of the whole trip was excellent, flights within the country, accommodation and activites. The guides were very knowledgable and told us a lot about the countries, their history, people, economy and much more. Wevisited the Great Zimbabwe Ruins, the Victoria Falls and a number of national parks in both countries.
Rhino tracking was a real adventure! We had tremendous further game drives and saw very many animals - we did the Big Five. We had much more activities than planned and enjoyed very much.We strongly recommend Falcon Safaris to everyone planning a trip to Southern Africa and East Africa.
Our Consultant Vimbai was very helpful and accommodating. We stayed at the Elephant hills hotel which was nothing short of amazing.Our activities included a helicopter flight, dinner cruise as well as a morning game drive. All the activities were absolutely amazing.
We worked with Gertrude to schedule and organize everything and she did an excellent job. I asked a lot of questions via e-mail and she answered everyone in a timely helpful manner. Our guide at Victoria Falls was also great. He met us at the airport, provided a thoughtful tour of the Falls and got us to our next guide in Botswana. Our lodgings at River View Lodge were just as described- very comfortable and excellent food. All the staff were so pleasant and helpful. If I had to do it again I would arrange a morning boat ride as well. We only did the sunset boat rides and they were the high point of our entire trip- we saw so many animals and our guide was very knowledgeable. Just a great experience. Our lodgings at Oddball's Enclave was rustic and we loved it. So great to disconnect from the world for a bit. Leo, our guide, was the best - got us out and about, saw fantastic wildlife and got back to camp safely each time. Doc manages the camp so well. This whole trip was planned and organized by Falcon Safaris and we could not have been happier.
Falcon safaris have given my the correct advice with excellent service. The only suggestion will be to work closer with the lodges to confirm bookings as soon as possible. We have booked and pay our deposit a year in advance. We have only receive our final convermation from Chobe Safari lodge a week before departure. I do realize its not within your controle but with limit alternatives and a group of 14 people it becomes an issue to find alternative accomodation if the booking was cancelled.
Our passion for Africa and her rich diversity is what drives us to deliver superior itineraries for you. With over 30 years’ unrivalled experience, we believe your trip should be as unique as you are and so we tailor-make them for you as an individual.
