The establishment is ... ideal choice for the visitor who wants the comforts of a luxury hotel, an environment with natural beauty (such as the Victoria Falls), as well as hotel entertainment such as a casino, spa, numerous restaurants and children’s activities.

Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe is the capital of the adrenalin junkies.

Seasonality and Weather
After Botswana's hot, wet season (November to March), during which many animals bear their young, April brings milder weather and lush, green landscapes through to August.
September and October are popular times to visit; the rainfall is minimal, and temperatures are warmer, with daily highs of 30 C (87ºF) to 35 C (93ºF) and nights of 23-26 C (75ºF to 80ºF). The grass in many areas is beaten flat, game viewing is easier, and animals are well concentrated around major water sources.
Cape Town: Our June date coincides with mid-"winter" in Cape Town, though the city enjoys a relatively mild winter and days can be sunny and fine and reasonably warm. That said, however, the weather here is notoriously changeable and one must be prepared for stormy weather and the possibility of wind and rain. September marks the arrival of spring and warmer and drier weather on average.
