Victoria Falls???

We are planning a trip which will start in Cape Town and then we'll head to East Africa. Is it worth the 3-4k to visit Victoria Falls "on the way by"? It is our first and possibly only trip to Africa. We are traveling in Sept 2014

Vic Falls is definitely worth visiting, but at 3-4K- I'd say not.

To be honest, Cape Town and East Africa also seems an odd combination. If combining safari and Cape Town it would make much more sense to me to do the safari in Botswana or South Africa, or even Zimbabwe or Zambia. Then it would be easy to add in Vic Falls.

I wouldn't try and cram in too many places so far apart- you may think this might be your only trip to Africa, but a lot of people will tell you how addictive the continent is. If that's you in your avatar photo, you look young enough to have many trips ahead of you!

$3-4k is a lot of money to spend just "on the way by" - don't get me wrong, Vic Falls is special.

How do you get from Cape Town to East Africa - fly, driving through?

Is that additional $1k inc flight ticket CPT to VFA and also accommodation? For one pax or two?

FYI – one way ticket CPT-VFA is about $370 per pax
