Our Venue for 2018

The next event will take place in Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe, 2 - 5 September 2018 at the Elephant Hills Resort.

Blessed with awe-inspiring natural wonders, an abundance of wildlife and vast open spaces, Zimbabwe offers unforgettable exploring of the real Africa. Zimbabwe is host to some of the finest safari experiences, including face to face encounters with nature at its most wild. Spectacular waterways provide adrenaline-thrills or a leisurely playground of activities for all ages, with spectacular daily sunsets are almost guaranteed.

Victoria Falls constitutes one of the most spectacular natural wonders of the world. Described by the Kololo tribe living in the area in the 1800’s as ‘Mosi-oa-Tunya’ – ‘The Smoke that Thunders’. In more modern terms Victoria Falls is known as the greatest curtain of falling water in the world.
