By Focus Online Team on November 23, 2018

Planning on visiting Victoria Falls on a trip around Southern Africa this Festive Season? December is one of the best times of year to visit Vic Falls as the town comes alive with people and the weather is hot and balmy, offering a wonderful getaway for our European visitors. As the adventure capital of Africa, Vic Falls offer a plethora of exciting activities to try during your stay. Keep reading for more on the best December activities Vic Falls in 2018.  

Sunset Cruises

The African Cruise Company fleet is made up of the impressive African Queen, a triple deck 70 foot catamaran and the slightly smaller, but equally luxurious, African Princess. Both offer spectacular sunset cruise experiences in December. What makes a sunset cruise even more special at this time of year, are the cumulus clouds that brew in the rainy season which glow with reds, oranges, purples and pinks along the horizon. Bookings can be made online.

Flight of Angels over Victoria Falls

The ‘Flight of Angels’ is an unforgettable helicopter flight over Victoria Falls, the Batoka Gorge, the Zambezi River and the lush Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park. Our flights last between 15 and 30 minutes depending on the option you choose. Although afternoon rain storms can alter our flight schedules – early mornings are usually still and clear, perfect for flying. Enquiries about our Vic Falls helicopter flights can be made on our website.

Bungee Jumping

Although not an activity Livingstone’s Adventure personally offers, bungee jumping in Vic Falls is usually at the top of visitors’ bucket lists. It offers the ultimate white knuckle thrill and in December, water levels of the Zambezi River are usually perfect for bungee.

Tiger Fishing

The Zambezi River is the fourth largest river in Africa and is home to one of the continent’s most sought-after fresh water game fish, the Tiger Fish (Hydrocynus Vittatus). The best time of year to go Tiger Fishing is between June and December. During the rainy season (from November to April) the fishing isn’t great as the river becomes dirty and then the fish start spawning.
