Vic Falls Marathon & Big 5 Safari

Overview- What to expect:
Many marathons claim to be unique, but the Victoria Falls Marathon truly is! And there is no better way to fully enjoy the run than with a short Big 5 safari afterwards…
Set in the adventure capital of Africa, the town of Victoria Falls, the scenic marathon route crosses the spectacular bridge border between Zimbabwe and Zambia, offering great views of the famous Victoria Falls and the mighty Zambezi river, all while you are running through a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Our specialised, guided running and Big 5 safari combination is perfect for those with a sense of adventure and combines two of Zimbabwe’s top attractions. We will get together in Victoria Falls before the run, experience the marathon together and then afterwards we spend a few days in Hwange National Park. It is one of Africa’s forgotten game parks and Zimbabwe’s biggest, and currently busy with a huge and exciting revival.
Get ready for an amazing African running and wildlife safari!
