The Vic Falls Carnival is a three day celebration of music and parties featuring both local and international artists. Historically the carnival was one of Africa’s biggest and most famous New Years parties, but dates were moved from New Years primarily because the organisers felt the Vic Falls Carnival is Africa’s celebration of its diverse culture, food and arts, and as such deserves its own stand alone date. This will be the tenth edition of the Carnival and is set to be the biggest and best yet.
An annual fundraising event hosted by the Victoria Falls Wildlife Trust and offering participants a two day off-road trail challenge where motorcycle and quad bike riders venture through the wilderness, along a route where the terrain offers both novice and experienced riders plenty of challenges. The event also features a gala evening function on the banks of the Zambezi with a three course meal, music and highlights of the event. All proceeds from the event go to Victoria Falls Wildlife Trust, Victoria Falls Anti-Poaching Unit (VFAPU), and the Victoria Falls Community Animal Health & Welfare Centre (VAWS)
The 2022 event will be held from 31st April to 1st May. To register for the event and to get more information, email email@example.com.
Started in 2006 the Victoria Falls Marathon is organised in conjunction with the National Athletics Association of Zimbabwe and is an AIMS (Association of International Marathon and Distance Races) registered event. The marathon race provides a platform for both local and international runners to pit themselves against the best! The marathon route is fast and relatively flat and is well supported by regular water points and cooling down sections, all ably managed by the sponsors. A full 42.2km marathon race, 21.2km half marathon run and a 7.5km fun run are available. This event is said to be one of the most thrilling races on the continent. The organisers use the event to raise money for various charitable organisations – Painted Dog Conservation, Rose of Charity in Victoria Falls, and the Victoria Falls Anti-Poaching Unit (VFAPU). Past events have supported such causes as AIDS orphans in Victoria Falls.
The Zambezi Cycle Challenge’s primary objective is to raise funds to preserve the environment surrounding this natural wonder and are split between carefully selected beneficiaries who focus on these important aspects of Victoria Falls and surrounding areas. Funds are raised by providing a top class, uniquely challenging and adventure filled experience through beautifully scenic, natural reserves; for participants that are conservationists as well as adventure enthusiasts! The three day stage event will cover a distance of between 55 to 75 kms each day
