Victoria Falls is a busy place in which something is always happening. During the day, helicopters circle above the Falls, this is the so-called Flight of Angels, where visitors can see the Victoria Falls from their lofty vantage point. There is also a lot of traffic on the roads and many people, locals and tourists alike, are out on the town. So if you prefer some peace and quiet, you can escape the hustle and bustle completely. There are a few options that we would like to offer you here.
Have you always wanted to overnight in a wooden chalet on stilts, with an airy thatched roof and open sides that allow a cooling breeze to waft through your room on typically hot Matusadona days? Have you always wanted to have a siesta on your bed whilst watching elephants on the shores of Lake Kariba? Or to wake up in the morning to gaze directly into the blood-red sunrise through your mosquito net?
