Welcome to Zimbabwe

The Victoria Falls Marathon makes a justifiable claim to being one of the most scenic and extraordinary running events in Africa. A World Heritage Site and commonly accepted as one of the Seven Wonders of the Natural World, Victoria Falls produces the world's largest sheet of falling water, and is roughly twice the height of North America's Niagara Falls.

The Victoria Falls marathon offers full and half marathons and a 7.5km fun run. It is relatively flat and fast and is well marshaled, with regular cooling down sections and water stations. The route takes in the Victoria Falls Bridge, the Upper Zambezi River and the Victoria Falls National Park.

You can find out much more about the Victoria Falls Marathon by following the link below. But before you do, we want you to consider making the most of your visit to Zimbabwe and enjoy the many other attractions we can make available to you. Pre- or post-marathon, the options are considerable. And through our parent company Tailormade Africa, we can offer you exceptional, individually designed itineraries. Here are just a few examples.

"It's been a year since I ran the Comrades Marathon. I love racing, so I do seem to find myself on lots of start lines all over the world. However, Comrades still sits at the forefront of my mind as one of my fondest racing memories.⁣
I like to think of myself as bold, independent and up for an adventure, but there is something so comforting about knowing someone else has planned every detail surrounding your race for you, and all you need to do is roll out of bed and run. Point-to-point races in a foreign country far from home could be a logistical nightmare, but there was nothing that wasn't thought about and taken care of by Africa Marathons. If you're keen to do one of the best races in the world, do get in contact with Rob and Clyde to make the experience even better. I'll have signed up again before I've finished writing this!" - Jess Johnson

If that doesn't sell it, we don't know what will!

Rhino Lodge is a favourite of ours here at Africa Marathons. Just 3 hours from Durban, nestled in the heart of Hluhluwe-Imfolozi Park there's no better place to unwind post Comrades Marathon. 

They were the first luxury safari lodge to be established within this world-renowned Big 5 game reserve which is also home to thriving populations of African wild dogs, lion, elephant and multitudes of other species. Capturing the suspension between earth and sky, this glass-wrapped lodge rests on a ridge overlooking Africa’s oldest game reserve. Down below a waterhole, frequented by a diversity of wildlife, pulling your eye away from the extraordinary views, as you slow down and connect with the earth.

Sound like somewhere you'd like to find yourself once the running is complete?
