Victoria Falls Carnival – New year 2017 Extravaganza


In 1855 when David Livingstone decided to toast to the queen at the turn of the New Year the spirit of celebration was established in Zimbabwe. The first formal music festival in Vic Falls started in 2009 with Falls Fest, which continued until 2011 when it became the legendary Vic Falls Carnival!

The excitement doesn’t stop at the festival grounds spend your days white water rafting, bungee jumping, on an elephant back safari or sip on a cocktail whilst you watch the vulture feeding at Safari Lodge. All festival goers receive 10% off all adventure packages when booked with your festival ticket.



The Kingdom Hotel is centrally located within the small resort town of Victoria Falls, close to all the major attractions including the entrance to the Victoria Falls rainforest which is a short walk away.

The Kingdom Hotel is one of the closest hotels to the Victoria Falls and has become a firm favourite with families, groups and individual travellers who are looking for a quality Victoria Falls hotel option. The hotel is centrally located, close to all the major attractions including the entrance to the Victoria Falls rainforest which is a short walk away.
