Victoria Falls Marathon is a high profile international marathon and half marathon taking place in July every year. This event is said to be one of the most thrilling races on the continent.

"Where else in the world do you have elephants at the water-points, and game on the race route, and the post-race party on the banks of the mighty Zambezi River?" said promoter John Addison of Wild Frontiers.

AND if the race is not enough for you the options of white water rafting, canoeing, bungee jumping, elephant back safaris, lion walks etc. should certainly make the trip worth your while.

Not forgetting the Mighty Victoria Falls - one of the seven wonders of the world!!!!!
