One company stands out from all the rest – SHEARWATER is the original and the best.
Shearwater is in it’s 4th decade of providing the very best of things to do In Victoria Falls which includes the most awesome and popular activities.
We are the original White water rafting company based in Victoria Falls and our pioneering spirit (aptly our motto) has ensured, that ever since our start in 1985 we have been the most innovative and progressive company in the area – always looking for exciting new products and services.
Most visitors to the Falls arrive on an afternoon flight (possibly booked at the Shearwater flight office), and can then be collected with punctuality, efficiency and professionally by a Shearwater transfer vehicle, which will stow all luggage and take guests to respective hotels to settle in.
Being late afternoon by now – time for one of the very best things to do in Victoria Falls and an activity no one should miss: a classic Zambezi sunset cruise. Shearwater will collect you from your hotel and take you to the Shearwater jetty for an unforgettable cruise on one of its twin decked craft as you sit back and indulge your romantic imagination – cruising the mighty Zambezi river just upstream of the amazing falls, enjoying a complimentary bar and delicious snacks. Watch a sunset you never thought possible.
At the end of the cruise get a transfer back into town and enjoy a fantastic meal at the superb Shearwater Café – amazing to go from the sublime to the urbane in such a short distance.
On your first morning – do what you came here to do – and the premier sightseeing tour in the area – enjoy an informative and expertly guided tour of the Victoria Falls and learn everything of the history, geography and contemporary form one of the Shearwater veterans.
Then for true perspective – Our flight of angels helicopter flight has become the mandatory thrill for ensuring visitors enjoy and witness the falls in all their incredible glory.
Next have a break and a coffee, and write a postcard at the Shearwater Café, before catching the complimentary Bungee bridge bus, to the iconic Victoria Falls bridge. Cross into no mans land between the borders of Zambia and Zimbabwe. First of all take in this amazing vista: the 120 year old bridge, the breathtaking Batoka gorge with coiling spoiling rapids below, the tropical vegetation and the falls themselves. Then decide – are you going for the Big Air combo: zip line, swing and bungee (an adrenaline cleansweep), or perhaps you’d enjoy the fabulous and idiosyncratic Historical Bridge tour. ALL definitely part of the must do ‘’things to do in Victoria Falls’’, and great individual activities in Victoria Falls.
Second morning and having seen the falls from above and below – its time to taste, touch and feel it. One of the most elemental experiences you could have anywhere in the world – is an amazing white water rafting trip, through the stunning Batoka gorge as you combat the most phenomenal grade 5 rapids in the world. This is the mighty Zambezi up close and personal – and one of the best things to do not only in Victoria Falls – but anywhere in the world – an activity in Victoria falls second to none.
Time again for another extraordinary Victoria falls juxtaposition as you swap the surreal for the sublime. Get up close and personal with Africa’s iconic mammal and enjoy an Elephant back safari in the glorious and huge Stanley and Livingstone game reserve (home to an incredible 9 rhinos). Riding atop these incredible animals and the close interaction you have with them with have a lifelong effect. It is small wonder the Elephant back safari rates as one of the very best things to do in Victoria Falls and one of its top activities.
ALL THE ABOVE IS MADE SO EFFICIENT, SO ENJOYABLE AND SO AFFORDABLE BY USING THE
ORIGINAL AND THE BEST: SHEARWATER.
Victoria Falls is a destination most visit for a 2-3 night period as part of a wider Southern African itinerary. However the sheer scale of things to do, activities to participate in, and experiences to be had means that to get the very best out of Victoria Falls, needs the careful planning of a strategic expert.
It would be utterly frustrating to leave this exquisite location, with a feeling that there is more you would like to have done, seen or experienced – but it was just difficult to fit it all in – it is very easy to succumb to a degree of information overload:
where to be when, have this visa ready, wear this type of clothing, finish this activity and be collected from here for that cruise, and your guided tour starts here, your allocated helicopter flight is at this time, and you are on an elephant back safari including a hearty breakfast at that time, your combination discount allows for this – and you need to be at the airport for your return flight by what time?
Victoria Falls is not a destination where hire of a vehicle is practical and will detract from – not add to your enjoyment here. Entrust yourself to Shearwater and experience perfect combination of a partner in logistics and owner operated activities.
