BRING IN THE NEW YEAR CARNIVAL STYLE
What better way to bring in the New Year than with a 3-day celebration with one of the seven natural wonders of the world, the Victoria Falls, as the scenic backdrop. The Vic Falls Carnival from 29 – 31 December 2012 offers a dynamite programme of events and a killer line-up of local artists!
Highlights of the carnival include:
The Zambezi Lager Party Express VIP Party on the 29th of December. Board the Vic Falls Carnival Party Express in time for a spectacular sunset, dressed to the Carnival theme, and enjoy an unforgettable ride on board the Vic Falls Steam Train before disembarking at a secret concert location in the heart of the African Bushveld.
With one of the highest deforestation rates on the planet, help Greenpop make a difference to this exquisite UNESCO world heritage site with the “Day of 1000 Trees at Vic Falls Carnival”. The Vic Falls Carnival and Greenpop are inspiring a greener tomorrow with a pledge to plant 1000 trees in a day. Get your hands dirty in support of this worthy project.
Get into the Carnival spirit with the Vic Falls Beer Fest on 30 and 31 December. Mill around the stalls and play carnival games all while sampling delicious African beers, absorbing great music and the summer sun.
New Year’s Eve celebrations at the Carnival will see a host of Southern Africa’s best artists performing. This fantastic line-up includes Zebra & Giraffe, The Graeme Watkins Project, Zahara, Plush, Jeremy Loops and Zimbabwe’s own Oliver Mtukudzi and Chicken Bus.
