Cyclists & runners can take on Zimbabwe’s national sporting challenges with The Ultimate Sporting Package at Victoria Falls Safari Club.
This year, Africa Albida Tourism’s Victoria Falls Safari Club, invites exercise enthusiasts to partake in sporting challenges, and visit Victoria Falls, one of the Seven Wonders of the World, in one holiday with its Ultimate Sporting Package. With two endurance testing challenges taking place in June and July, The Zambezi Cycle Challenge and The Victoria Falls Marathon, Victoria Falls Safari Club will provide the perfect setting for participants to prepare for the events. With an energising breakfast, a muscle massage and rejuvenating celebration afterwards, this package is ideal for the intrepid sporting traveller.
For Bradley Wiggins wannabes, the Zambezi Cycle Challenge is a three-day event, to be held from 7th to 9th July 2017, set against the backdrop of the world-famous Victoria Falls, covering between 50 and 80kms a day through magnificent scenery, an endurance test not for the fainthearted!
Regular pavement pounders may feel more enticed by the Victoria Falls Marathon taking place on 18th June 2017 – not only a fitness challenge, but a once in a lifetime opportunity to complete an awe-inspiring achievement surrounded by some of the most magical sights in the world. This mammoth event includes a full marathon (42.2Km), a half marathon (21.1km) and a fun run (7.5km), and gives runners the rare opportunity to glimpse one of the Seven Wonders of the World and spot wildlife as the route wends through the Zambezi National Park.
The Ultimate Sporting Package with Victoria Falls Safari Club
With such big challenges looming, participants of either event need the utmost relaxation and preparation beforehand, and Victoria Falls Safari Club’s Ultimate Sporting Package offers exactly that. Upon check in, guests will be taken to their private room, an oasis of relaxation and privacy, before enjoying a carb-filled dinner at the hotel’s signature Makuwa-Kuwa Restaurant and an early night in one of the most peaceful atmospheres imaginable.

Following the events, guests will be offered a special relaxing massage at the Victoria Falls Club spa, to restore and rejuvenate their overworked muscles. After spending some well-deserved leisure time in their room or making the most of the refreshing pool, guests will be invited to enjoy a serene sundowner, overlooking the stunning Zambezi River and beyond – a time to reflect on their success and achievement.
