Cape Town is a spectacular city located at the southern tip of Africa where the Atlantic Ocean meets the Indian Ocean. This world-renowned city is frequently voted as one of the Top 10 cities to visit and is easily recognized by the majestic Table Mountain. Cape Town offers a wide range of attractions from pristine beaches and breathtaking coastlines, to an abundance of fauna and flora, world-class wine estates and superb luxury accommodation.
Cape Town is an all year attraction with December to February being the peak season for holidaymakers.
Victoria Falls is located on the Zambezi River, on the border of Zambia and Zimbabwe. This idyllic location features the world’s biggest waterfall and is a popular destination on any safari circuit. The Victoria Falls is so powerful that during the height of the rainy season, the amount of water that flows over its edges every 4 days is equivalent to the total water usage of New York City in a year.
The Victoria Falls area offers many activities including white water rafting, aerial views of the Falls, sunset cruises and of course Tiger fishing. The area offers a wide selection of accommodation but for the top rated lodges and hotels see the Victoria Falls Luxury Accommodation guide at ASH.
