Trek from Victoria Falls to Cape Town

Africa has many romantic notions attached to it – from explorers in ox wagons to spectacular sunsets and lions roving the streets. Many of these ideas are outdated and mythical, but this does not mean that that continent does not have amazing features to offer those brave enough to explore as it was always meant to be travelled. Adventure travel in Africa involves purpose built expedition trucks, deserts and outdoor living at its most beautiful. Travelling from Victoria Falls to Cape Town is a fantastic way to be introduced to the Africa of today and allows participants to see some of the continent’s finest features.

What to See Between Victoria Falls and Cape Town

Adventure travel companies such as Oasis Overland offer many African overland trips that include travelling from Victoria Falls to Cape Town. Within the relatively short distance between these two areas, there is so much to see that it is difficult to fit it all into one trip. Victoria Falls or Mosi oa Tunya ‘The Smoke That Thunders’ is often labelled as the highlight of any trip. This majestic landmark is situated on the border between Zambia and Zimbabwe and not only offers spectacular views and a calming, powerful atmosphere, but also activities to suit any and all tastes. The area offers white water rafting, canoe trips, sunset cruises, one of the world’s highest commercial bungee jumps as well as gorge swinging and abseiling to keep you busy.

The Chobe National Park in Botswana on the way down from Victoria Falls to Cape Town offers the chance to take a cruise along the river and view the area’s animals from a new, unique perspective. The Etosha National Park in Namibia offers some of the best night game viewing in the world, while the enormous sand dunes offer ample opportunity for quad biking, sand boarding and much more. The nearby Fish River Canyon offers sensational hiking and natural activities and is the ideal gateway to enter the more urban area of Cape Town.

Travelling from Victoria Falls to Cape Town does not have to mean that the trip ends there. Cape Town is alive with activity and offers some of the world’s finest natural wonders, urban delights and cultural monuments. Cape Town is a fine example of how Africa has evolved to amalgamate modern living with its natural beauty – features like Table Mountain lying at the heart of the city should not be missed.
