Exploring… with Renier Friis and Michelle Lazarus

Renier Friis (General Manager: Procurement and Product Development) and Michelle Lazarus (Procurement Executive) went on a whirlwind trip to Victoria Falls and Chobe in May.  They share their images and comments with us.

Shearwater Explorers Village

This is a new accommodation offering of Shearwater in Victoria Falls. The village is located in walking distance from the town centre and falls.

The rooms are crisp and well equipped.  This is going to be a great new affordable addition to the accommodation offering in Vic Falls.

They are also busy building additional deluxe units which will become operational later in the year.


Riversong Sunset Cruise

New luxury sunset cruise offering for the more discerning customer who is perhaps looking for that personal and upmarket service.

The boat is well equipped and has two decks offering comfortable seating for all passengers complimented by great service, drinks and individual snacks per person.


Riversong Sunrise Cruise

A brand new experience on the same boat where guests can experience the Zambezi river in the early morning as the sun rises.

This is a unique and wonderful experience that we can suggest to guests for their last morning before check out as it will give them time to still go back to the hotel, have breakfast and freshen up before departing.

The cruise includes tea/coffee as well as some freshly bakes scones, muffins, croissants etc.


Flight of Angels

Another must do activity for anyone visiting Victoria Falls.  There is no better way to experience the Falls from the air as you then only really appreciated this natural wonder of the world.


Shearwater Café

This is a brilliant option or lunch or dinner as Victoria Falls truly has a “Café” vibe and culture.  They have a great menu offering which also won’t break your budget.


Chobezi Mobile Camping Experience

Situated in the Chobe National Park (Botswana) is where you will find this truly unique and authentic classic African camping safari experience.

Head back to the routes of the African safari experience.  This rustic and basic offering is not suitable for all guests.  It is a TRULY classic CAMPING experience.
