Victoria Falls | 3 Hour Sunrise/Sunset Cycle
Our Victoria Falls Cycle, showcases the sights and sounds of Victoria Falls, one of the seven natural wonders of the world and the historic colonial Victoria Falls Hotel. Cycle the banks of the mighty Zambezi river, encounter Africa's wildlife, enjoy stunning views of the rainbow-covered falls, and to top it all, ride onto the world famous Victoria Falls Bridge with unsurpassing views of the spectacular wonder.
We begin our signature cycle from the iconic Victoria Falls Hotel, built in 1904. It boasts a private pathway to the Falls and guests from far and wide gather here for High Tea - with freshly baked scones, cake and pastries and cucumber sandwiches on the menu!
After meeting your Bike & Saddle guide, the adventure begins and we make our way out to Zambezi Drive, keeping an eye out for impala, warthog, monkeys, baboons, an abundant of birdlife and even the mighty elephant!
We break along the way at scenic viewpoints, alongside the perennial Zambezi, hardly believing that this seemingly placid and innocuous river will be transformed into a terrifying torrent of water a few kilometres downstream!
We continue onto the Big Tree, a massive and ancient Baobab which is over a thousand years old, as our guide explains the unique fauna and flora of the region. From here on to the leafy, tree-lined suburbs and then into Chinotimba Township, where we get a sense of local customs and culture. We wander through the bustling market as our guide points out the different fruit and vegetables, and we visit a local church, clinic and school, seeing a side of Victoria Falls that is not on most tourist itineraries. For many a guest this is a highlight.
An optional extra includes a walking tour of the Victoria Falls Rainforest Park on the return leg of the cycle. Appreciate the transcendental beauty of the Falls up close on this walk, and marvel at the rainbow that stretches across the foaming torrent of water - the perfect place to capture the moment on camera! After the walk we cycle along the private pathway back to the Victoria Falls Hotel as the sun sets below the plume of spray - there really is no better way to experience the majestic Falls!
