Whether you are newlyweds or you said your ‘I dos’ 50 years ago, Vic Falls should be your next anniversary destination to celebrate your love for each other, rekindle the romance and take that much-awaited second honeymoon you’ve been yearning for…

The Victoria Falls – with its one liquid foot in Zimbabwe and the other in Zambia – has long been a destination inspiring romance. As the curtain of water plummets over the cliff’s edge, and the wildlife-rich Zambezi River beckons you closer for a sundowner, Victoria Falls is tranquillity at its best, abounding in romance and adventure – a memorable getaway.

Victoria Falls Safari Lodge

Back in Zimbabwe, Victoria Falls Safari Lodge beats to the rhythm of Africa’s soul. From the restaurant’s viewing deck, or the rooms’ private balcony, the sprawling landscape of the Zambezi National Park awaits with unbeatable sunset views over a waterhole frequented by elephants and more. Dining is an exquisite entertainment experience; whether you are serenaded by the locals at your table or attending the lively interactive Boma Dinner and Drum Show.
