Enjoy breakfast at leisure before meeting with your guide for your included morning tour of Victoria Falls. Six hundred and fifty million liters of water from the Zambezi River crashes with great aplomb into the chasm below, which is why the locals call Victoria Falls, Mosi oa Tunya, the smoke that thunders. The smoke is the permanent mist which hangs over the falls and the surrounding forest, and the thunder? You will hear for yourself. The force and power of the Falls almost defies belief. We visit the falls from both the Zimbabwe and the Zambian sides, and when it's in full flow, you'll experience the showers from the crushing falls below. 

This afternoon, enjoy a high tea at the iconic Victoria Falls Hotel at Stanley’s Terrace. Make your own way to the hotel located only a short four minute walk from Ilala Lodge where you will be seated and served with old world charm enjoying a selection of freshly made pastries and scones as you take in spectacular views of the Victoria Falls Bridge and the spray from the Falls below.
