Guests at The Victoria Falls Hotel can choose from a wide variety of adventure activities which can be booked from the hotel's activities desk. Wildlife can be viewed on foot, by vehicle or boat, as well as on horseback. Elephant back safaris are also available. Other exciting activities include walks through the nearby rainforest, white water rafting, and helicopter flights. A large swimming pool, two tennis courts, a library, reading rooms and chapel are part of the complex. Golfers can enjoy 18 holes on the championship course of the nearby sister hotel, Elephant Hills Resort. For guests who wish to take in some game viewing, a five kilometre drive (or walk) brings them to the national park and, guided by professional rangers, they will seek out Zimbabwe's "big five" - elephant, rhino, leopard, lion and buffalo - and be able to capture their encounters forever, on camera! A sunset cruise on the mighty Zambezi River, just upstream from the magnificent falls, is another must for the visitor and will be arranged by hotel staff. Crocodiles, abundant hippo and new friends are the staple of these legendary exhilarating cruises.
