Enjoy a complimentary transfer through Mosi-O-Tunya National Park to the jump site where you may spot some Game roaming free. You will enjoy unlimited jumps at any of the Ziplines or the world's first commercial Gorge Swing. This includes a 90min tour of the Batoka Gorge as you go on an African bush experience all the way to the banks of the Zambezi River. The views are breathtaking as you will experience the Batoka Gorge in its raw state. Your guides are knowledgeable and they will explain to you all the flora and fauna around the Gorge.
Afterwards you will be taken on a free helicopter flight as you finish your day by exploring the breathtaking Victoria Falls and the Batoka Gorge from the sky.
This enables you to marvel at the magnificent beauty of the Batoka Gorge between some of the most exciting and challenging rapids rafted anywhere on the planet. The Zambezi River changes water level significantly throughout the year. You can choose from two types of rafting experiences such as the low water half day morning or half day afternoon experiences!
Your tour starts with hotel pickup in Livingstone for the drive to Musi-oa-Tunya National Park, where your nature walk takes place with your guide. Nature walks provide a more natural and eco-friendly way of viewing African game, birds, and plantlife instead of a safari vehicle. Plus, on this walk, you have flexibility with your guide to spend longer than the standard duration of three hours, if you wish.
This park is home to three of Africa's Big Five animalsâ€”elephant, buffalo, and a big part of Zambia's white rhino population. Your guide will also show you wildlife such as giraffes, zebras, wildebeest, warthogs, primates, and antelopesâ€”to mention but a fewâ€”as well as the local tree varieties, including teaks, mahoganies, and the mopane and marula trees, a favorite of the elephants. During a mid-walk break, perhaps near the Zambezi River, aka Kasamba Bezi, you'll have the chance to observe hippos and ibis along the riverbanks.
When your time ends, you'll be returned to your pickup location to end your tour. This walking safari through the park and surrounding area is suitable for active and adventurous participants.
After hotel pickup in Livingstone, head to Victoria Falls to begin your walking tour around this World Heritageâ€“listed waterfall on the Zambezi River, forming the border between Zambia and Zimbabwe. The falls are spectacular at any time of year, whether high season (April to August), with curtains of spray and roaring water, or low season (September to March), when you can stare down the rock face between trickles of water to the bottom, where fish swim below the Knife-edge Bridge.
Known by the Kololo people as Mosi-oa-Tunya, â€˜The Smoke that Thunders,â€™ Victoria Falls is the world's largest sheet of falling water, even though it's not the widest or tallest waterfall. During your time here, visit a vantage point across the Knife-edge Bridge for a view of the Eastern Cataract and the Main Falls, as well as the Boiling Pot, where the river turns and heads down Batoka Gorge. Other vantage points include Victoria Falls Bridge, Devil's Pool, and the Lookout Tree, which provides panoramic views across the Main Falls.
In total, there are over 750 bird species in Zambia, across a range of environments. Wetland and swamp areas attract a variety of waterfowl, from herons, storks and ibises to the stately crowned and wattled cranes. Zambia's the most sought-after wetland species, the shoebill stork, is the highlight of any bird-watching break to Zambia's Bangweulu wetlands.
The birding highlights of Zambia's drier areas include the country's only truly endemic bird species, the Chaplin's barbet - with its distinctive red eye patch. Other colorful specialties in Zambia include Bohm's bee-eater, racket-tailed roller and spotted creeper.Â
Depending on our visitors` interests we are happy to tailor your special birding experience.he
Pick up at 6am from any lodge or hotel in Livingstone. Birding Safari duration is 3 to 5 hours depending on your tick list. Drop off after walk at your lodge or hotel.
Many travelers only get to see village life in their vehicleÂ´s window. Some villages have opened their doors for tourists,giving them a chance to experience their day to day life. We take you into the heart of villages, where you will be introduce to ZambiaÂ´s rural culture. You will be shown how local huts are built or where children go to school.
After your visit your guide will be happy to take you to a lovely lodge nearby where you can enjoy lunch or some refreshing drinks in a nice atmosphere.
Dances and Masque are an integral in Zambian Culture. Visit a cultural center with our guides and learn more about the meaning, stories and tasks behind them.
Leave your hotel around 6am and return around 2pm.
Leave your Livingstone hotel and travel to the nearby banks of the Zambezi River, a famous stretch of water that snakes its way through the savannah plains and swamplands of six different countries on route to the Indian Ocean.
At the waterâ€™s edge, hop aboard your sightseeing boat and take a seat on deck, enjoying a selection of finger snacks, such as crisps and nuts, as well as a drink from the onboard bar. One glass of Champagne is included, and all other drinks â€“ beer, wine and soft drinks â€“ are unlimited!
With drink in hand, settle back and gaze out at the river to take stock of the rich wildlife floating around you. Have your camera ready to capture sights of hippos wallowing in the shallows and crocodiles snaking along the waterâ€™s edge; the colorful birdlife is camera worthy, too.
As the sun goes down, many of the land-based wildlife of Victoria Falls National Park head down to the river to drink, bathe and graze. Look out for Cape buffalo and giraffes, as well as the herds of elephants that often cross the river around sunset.
After three hours cruising up and down a stretch of the Zambezi River, seeing the sunset sights, return to the riverbank and step back onto dry land. Your experience then finishes with a hotel drop-off in Livingstone.
Choose from a morning or afternoon tour, and then start your tour with a pickup from your centrally located Livingstone hotel. On your way to the falls, stop on the banks of the Zambezi River for a photo op next to 'The Big Tree' — an impressive baobab that is believed to be more than 1,000 years old.
From there, your minibus delivers you to the rainforest on the fringes of Victoria Falls, where you set off on a mild walk along the lush trails. Listed as one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World, the waterfall is also known as Mosi-oa-Tunya, meaning ‘smoke that thunders’ in Kololo. It's a name that resonates considering you can admire the mist of the roaring falls from some 20 miles (32 km) away.
As you explore the pretty rainforest trails that surround the falls, marvel at the sight of the Zambezi River plunging down a series of basalt gorges. At roughly 1.2 miles (2 km) wide and 360 feet (108 m) tall, Victoria Falls is one of the world’s largest waterfalls — it's double the size of Niagara Falls.
Look out for Livingstone’s Statue that looks out over the Devil’s Cataract — a natural pool that marks the lowest point of the falls — and learn about the monument's namesake, David Livingstone. The intrepid explorer brought Victoria Falls to the world’s attention when he stumbled upon them in 1855. Instantly stunned by the falls’ grandeur, he decided to name them after Queen Victoria.
After two hours of exploring the rainforest trails around the waterfall, return to your coach and finish your tour with a hotel drop-off in Livingstone.
