Victoria Falls Events
Victoria Falls is making a name for itself with a series of annual activities and special events.Victoria Falls, this amazing Adventure Capital of Africa - has so much to offer! Not only is it a natural wonder of the world and renowned for having some of the best activities to be found anywhere on our planet, it now has some of the most spectacular and exciting events to boot.
We have rafting, mountain biking and a marathon – plus an event combining all three, the Zambezi Ironman, requiring, it must be said, an element of dedication!
Throughout the year there are many exciting and interesting activities and events – not all requiring us to be ‘Ironmen’! And then at the end of the year there’s the annual Falls Fest - an entertainment packed New Year’s celebration, with live music from some of the tops bands around.
Due to the limited nature of accommodation availability in Victoria Falls, it’s best to plan early if you are focussing you energies on one of these special events.
Package deals are often put together for these events so contact us and we can tell you what's available.
This event established in 2010, is operated by the same organisers of the successful Victoria Falls Marathon, Zambezi-Man and also the Kilimanjaro Marathon. The three day event is set to become an iconic event for adventure cyclists the world over and comprises of a combination of single track, rural roads and a small amount of tar.
Note that most of these areas are not generally accessible to the public and as such are unique to this event. From the base of Elephant Hills Hotel, in Victoria Falls – competitors will cycle over three days in different areas of this beautiful region.
Total distance travelled is estimated to be in the region of 270km. Each night you will be in complete comfort in your hotel room, with access to swimming pools and maybe a round of golf. The event will be fully backed up, marshalled, and controlled to world standards.
Whilst the Victoria Falls Mountain Bike race is a challenge for the fast, competitive riders, it will also be a great event for social riders. Well spaced refreshment points along the way, good marshalling and sweep bikes and cars, as well as some spectacular, un-ridden sections will allow riders some great views of one of Zimbabwe's most scenic areas.

Started in 2009 the Victoria Falls Marathon is organised in conjunction with the National Athletics Association of Zimbabwe and is an AIMS (Association of International Marathon and Distance Races) registered event.
The marathon race provides a platform for both local and international runners to pit themselves against the best! The marathon route is fast and relatively flat and is well supported by regular water points and cooling down sections, all ably managed by the sponsors. A full 42.2km marathon race, 21.2km half marathon run and a 5km fun run are available.
The event takes place at the end of August every year and with over 650 runners participating in last years event, from over 24 countries, it is hoped the Victoria Falls Marathon will become an event of international appeal. Who wants to run in polluted cities when you can enjoy the pristine environments of the Victoria Falls!

It is a multi-day challenge in some of the most beautiful and rugged terrain in Africa, including a 50km raft/paddle event, 100km mountain bike cycle and marathon to finish. Last year over 50 competitors attempted this gruelling three day event.
This exciting event will test your rafting skills on the Grade 5 rapids of the Zambezi River on day one, followed by a timed mountain bike race on day two, and a full 42.2 km run on the third and final day. It is fully supported and backed up by the Event Crew - with the cycle and run sections having regular water points along the way.
