Our New Victoria Falls and Cape Town Extensions

Written by Thomson Safaris

The pastel facades of Cape Town, the world’s largest waterfall – seeing more of Africa’s incredible wonders just got a little easier.

Experience our newest extensions, a lavish tour of South African wine country in Cape Town and a gripping journey to see the thundering torrents of Victoria Falls.

Both adventures come by popular request on behalf of our guests.

Culture, Cuisine and Class in Cape Town

Wine tasting at vineyards in South AfricaOpposites attract, and you’ll find the opposite of Tanzania’s rugged, untamed reaches in Cape Town’s vibrant streets and lush vineyards. The surrounding wine country produces the continent’s best vintages, and the city boasts plenty of fine dining venues.

Take a Private Tour of Victoria Falls

Every minute, 540 million cubic meters of water crashes down this 355-foot cliff face. National Geographic shot a beautiful interactive 360-degree video over the falls. See for yourself:

We use local, expert guides who give excellent, immersive tours of the waterfall. If you want to take in the full immensity of the falls, you can book an optional helicopter tour over the site.
