Hello everyone. We would really like to visit Victoria Falls but due to the timings of our other flights can only do either 1 night or 2 nights (the latter would be a stretch) in Victoria Falls.
We are planning on staying at The Kingdom which based on the TA reviews is very close to Victoria Falls on the Zimbabwe side. We are flying in from JNB arriving at 12:35 PM and the flight departs on 1:25 PM either the following day (stay 1 night) or day after that (stay 2 nights).
We will have already spent 4 days in Balule Game Reserve near Kruger, 4 days in Cape Town, and 2 days in Jo'berg so we don't feel the need to do a lot of wildlife watching and are really there to experience the beauty of the falls. We also don't need to spend any time in casinos or whitewater rafting - we do plenty of the latter here and little of the former anywhere.
1. Is 1-24 hour period enough?
2.If we arrive at 12:35 PM at VFA, when should we expect to make it to the hotel by?
3. Is it reasonable to (a) check-in to our hotel, (b) walk to the falls - sounds like a 10 min walk from the hotel, (c) take a taxi to the Zambia side, (d) take another taxi to see the Zambia side, (e) return by the 6 PM closing time, (f) dine early and go to sleep early, (g) wake up early to watch the sunrise and go to the falls in the morning, (h) eat breakfast, (i) pack-up and head back to the airport?
Please note we will be visiting in late March. Thank you for your help.
