1. Victoria Falls: Rural Experience with Local Community

Take a peek into rural African life and give your holiday a different perspective. Following a pickup from your hotel, embark on an approximately 20km journey to a local village outside the resort town of Victoria Falls. Drive along the dusty country roads for approximately 30 minutes before arriving in the peaceful rural countryside. Leave the Western world behind and embrace the opportunity to enter a different world in Zimbabwe. Feel at ease and be blown away by the local tradition of outstanding hospitality and spirit of ubuntu, meaning "humanness". As you interact with the locals, discover the essence of survival in a local village as you go through introductions and talk about the local culture, history, customs, and daily lives. If you desire, you can be a part of the working community and for children this is an opportune time for them to experience how life on the other side of the world is and to fully appreciate the luxuries they have back home. Besides learning about the locals’ way of life, you will also have the chance to exchange your knowledge and skills. At the end of this exciting experience, you’ll be transferred back to your hotel.

What people are saying about Matabeleland North

The Segway was fun! I didn’t expect Zimbabwe to have it too! It sure saved us a lot of walking under the hot sun! Actually, it would be good if the tour could specify that the Vitoria falls wasn’t included. We came because of that actually, not so much of the history of the town as it’s a very small town. Most people who don’t stay in this region would think that the tour is about the falls instead of the town. Haha

An appreciation to Victoria Falls town. The view at Lookout Cafe is fantastic.
