"Hi Tony and Boo

We were really confused with all that there was to do, we were getting really flustered. Once we had downloaded your guide from your website, we were really able to get a clear understanding of what's was going on in Victoria Falls. Our trip went perfectly and we want to thank you as I'm sure you saved us so much time and money."

Tour of the Falls (includes a map) - We have written this section to enhance your time spent at the actual waterfall. Detailing all the viewpoints and what you are likely to see from each one.

Why Buy a Guide From Us?

Having lived in Victoria Falls for many years we feel we know it really well (read our About us Page). We feel privileged to have an in-depth knowledge of this area but also to have been fortunate enough to learn how to turn this into information that can be accessed through the internet. We are pretty confident in stating that at this stage, there is no other resource of this kind that you can buy in the shops or on the internet.

We have given a local unbiased perspective on everything at Victoria Falls in the hope of giving you a solid foundation to make your plans and decisions.


Who is This Guide for?

If you are tired of searching the internet for information on Vic Falls and all you seem to come up with is patchy info, that you are not sure whether you can rely on, then this guide is for you. If you want to maximize your time spent at Victoria Falls, then this guide is for you.

Most people only stay here for a few days, but many miss out on what's available because of limited knowledge. By having this guide you will be sure Not miss a thing. The local information contained will be invaluable for the first time visitor who just hasn't a clue what to expect but also for return visitor, who is coming back to experience the magic of this place.

If you want to be organised and have everything arranged by the time you get here, then this guide will give you all the information you need to do that planning. If you are one of those people wanting to wait till you get there, you will have all the necessary information at your fingertips.


What is an e-guide and how does it differ from a normal book?

An E-guide stands for electronic guide; meaning that the contents are sent to you via the internet, electronically. You then save the information onto your computer and you print out the information you want.

E-guides have Seven Distinct Advantages.

  1. The biggest advantage is the instant delivery. Once your payment has been processed, you will have immediate access to download all the components of this e-guide that have been mentioned above. No time wasted waiting for delivery, you can start reading straight away.

  2. There are no postage or packaging costs. No worry about it getting damaged or whether it will arrive or not. If it is not to your liking simply ask for a refund, you don't even have to post it back.

  3. Hard copy books take a long time to produce and are then printed in their thousands. The copy you buy could well be several years old and the information contained within it very outdated. This is why most hardcopy guides do not contain specifics as they are concerned with the time sensitivity of certain information. In comparison the e-guide you download, is today's copy. We update this e-guide whenever situations or circumstance in Zimbabwe change. All the content is current and accurate

  4. A single purchase allows you life time access and multiple downloads to the information in this e-guide. If you decide to travel to Victoria Falls again in ten years time, simply download the latest copy and you will once again have current information at your fingertips

  5. An e-guide has web links embedded in the content, linked to in-depth information on websites. You are able to access this information at the click of a mouse.

  6. You can print an e-guide out as many times as you like. It's a working manual that you are going to use, not a pretty picture book that looks nice on your book shelf. If your e-guide gets damaged - print another one.

  7. You get a full money back guarantee. We could NOT offer this guarantee on a real book because of the publishing costs. Once you buy a real book you have to keep it. In contrast, if you are not satisfied with this e-guide, simply ask for your money back.

20% of Proceeds Go To The Victoria Falls Anti Poaching Unit

Victoria Falls Anti poaching unit logo

We have made the decision to donated 20% of the proceeds from the sale of this e-book to the Victoria Falls Anti Poaching Unit (VFAPU)

VFAPU, established in January 1999 is committed to the conservation of wildlife around the Victoria Falls region. Sadly poaching is forever escalating and VFAPU's task is enormous.

Without these dedicated organisations our wildlife would ALREADY be a thing of the past. Successes to date include the removal of more than 20 000 wire snares and the arrest of over 400 poachers. The VFAPU team serve tirelessly on limited funds to save our heritage. We owe and honour them for that.

Our hope is to generate some serious revenue from this e-guide to keep VFAPU operational. In doing so we ALL are protecting and safeguarding this unique and phenomenal area for generations to come.


Hi - We have just returned from Victoria Falls. What an amazing place and the people are so friendly. Your e guide was fantastic a really helped us in deciding what to do. We decided not to take the guided tour but just printed out the one from your guide. It is brilliant. Can't wait to go back and do some of the other activities on offer.

Dave Sinclair -Sydney Australia


PS Your Victoria Falls Travel Guide in e-format is extremely user friendly, with no postage time, one can get it downloaded and put to good use immediately.

It is set out in a very easy~to~follow manner which makes using it a pleasure. You seemed to have covered every query I can think of asking…and then of course going through the guide with your webpage showing additional info and activity prices just make life so much easier.

Knowing what activities are available even before we put our foot in the country makes budget and time planning a breeze. Thank you, we can’t wait to get there and start holiday~ing!!!

Sandy van Rensburg -South Africa


Very comprehensive, very nice maps. I'm sure it will be very helpful for me when I'm there. I especially like the many details about activities, including who picks up and at what time. I have been doing a lot of online research and found much of the information available on the many, many websites vague at best. For instance, it took me forever to figure out that everyone keeps talking about "Victoria Falls" but some mean the falls, and others the town, and that some activities take place in Zambia only, and others in Zimbabwe only. Your information is much clearer.
