I am looking to travel to Victoria Falls in December and want to see both sides of the Falls. I also love to hike and swim. I also hope to get to a safari park, but not a huge deal if I do not. I plan to arrive on a Sunday and leave on a Thursday. I am an Aussie but live in the USA, and travel on an Aussie passport.
I have been reading the Lonely Planet guides and the TA forums and would love to understand the following:
1. Do I really need a yellow fever jab? What is the exact requirement for the visa requirements?
2. It seems it is not possible to get multiple entries but if I do the hike across the bridge a couple of times and go to an animal park in Botswana, is it possible to get two double entry visas?
3. Swimming in the devils pool. This sounds fun, but I have a fear of heights, so how far is the jump into the pool?
4. How wet and warm is the area in the first couple of weeks of December? I have heard there can be fantastic electrical storms and love thunder storms - watching them , not being stupid about "experiencing" one.
Appreciate all feedback and comments.
