VICTORIA FALLS ZIMBABWE
Victoria Falls is a small tourism town located in Zimbabwe on the south bank of the Zambezi River and under the spray shadow of the Victoria Falls. Known world-wide as one of the ‘Seven Natural Wonders of the World’, there’s much more to the Victoria Falls than one of the world’s greatest waterfalls. The town is situated within the wider Victoria Falls National Park, while a short distance upstream lies the Zambezi National Park and elephant, Victoria Falls town is a special place where we have the privilege of co-existing with wildlife.

Lions, antelopes and hippos inhabit the woods and lagoons around Linyanti Marsh. The floodable grasslands of the Savuti Marsh attract numerous bird species, plus migrating zebras.

Just upstream from the Victoria Falls lies the Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park, home to buffalo, impala, zebra, giraffe, warthog and the endangered white rhino. On a rhino walk, you get to come close to the amazing and sadly highly endangered white rhino. A 4 x 4 safari through the park takes guests to the position where the trackers located the Rhinos. Here guests receive a briefing by the guides regarding the procedures and safety aspects of the walk. Guests will have the once in a lifetime opportunity to walk near, to spend some quality time interacting (at a safe distance) with and photographing the rhino. Professional guides give commentary on the rhino as well as wildlife, flora and spore encountered during the walk. The walking segment is approximately 2 hours in duration. Guests are then transported to the picnic site reserved for the walking safaris where they are provided with Sandwiches and snacks. After the picnic guests are accompanied by guides to the park exit and transferred by vehicle back to their Livingstone Town.

There is nothing quite like the heart-pounding sensation of actually standing on the edge of these magnificent falls and being drenched by the never ending spray.. But no matter how you decide to visit "The Smoke That Thunders" very few people are ever really prepared for the incredible beauty and mesmerising strength and power of the mighty Victoria Falls. The heart-pounding sensation of actually standing on the edge of the precipice above the raging Zambezi waters is something quite unforgettable. Spray from the pounding water rises more than 60 feet into the air before tumbling down to create 24 hours of solid rain... The Falls are literally at the end of the main street through the town centre. Of course the ever present 'Smoke' (rising spray) will very soon have you orientated as to its location. The edge of the falls is reached through the cool, moist tunnels of the rainforest. Always shrouded in fine spray, the forest is a fairyland of exotic plants thriving in the humidity. Concrete paths have been made to stop sightseers trampling away the lip of the gorge. Parts of the precipice opposite the falls have been cleared of undergrowth to give a clear view, but the falls can also be seen from the depths of the forest through glistening, dripping, spray soaked leaves. Come and experience this wonderful exhilarating moment.

Departing from Maun we travel to Moremi Game Reserve and the Savuti Marsh - both renowned for some of the best game viewing in Africa. Game viewing in these two wilderness reserves will be done in open-sided 4x4 game viewing vehicles. We then embark on a game drive and sunset boat cruise in Chobe National Park, home to some of the largest elephant herds in Africa, together with a rich array of other wildlife and birds. Then we cross into Zambia where we visit Victoria Falls, enjoy optional activities and spend two nights camping on the banks of the Zambezi River. The Botswana Highlights & Victoria Falls Safari ends in Livingstone, on the Zambian side of the Falls. Day 1: MAUN - BOTSWANA [camping] Our Southern African adventure begins in Maun, a small town located on the south-eastern edge of the Okavango Delta. Maun serves as our access point to prime wilderness areas of Botswana. For the more adventurous of heart there is a scenic flight over the Okavango Delta (own expense). The day ends with a relaxing sundowner drink at the pool, and a meal in the lodge restaurant (own expense), celebrating the start of our journey into game-rich Botswana. Day 2 - 5: MOREMI & SAVUTI - BOTSWANA [camping BLD] (B=breakfast, L= lunch, D= dinner) We spend the next 4 nights in the Moremi and Savuti game parks allowing plenty of time to explore their various wild habitats. We take game drives in search of the abundance of wildlife found in these top wilderness areas, including wild dog, elephant, hippo, buffalo, lion & other game. Moremi Game Reserve rates as one of the leading wildlife areas of the world and we take our open 4x4 safari vehicle into Moremi for fantastic game viewing!

Moving north we cross a sandy ridge and make our way into the Mababe depression arriving at the Savuti Marsh. This open grassland area attracts herds of zebra and wildebeest, which in turn draw the large lion prides for which Savuti is famous. In the Savuti area we camp at one of the accessible Savuti campsites or at the Zwei-Zwei Pans. The private campsite at Zwei-Zwei Pans lies about 20km north east of Savuti and offers a more wild bush camping experience than camping in the national park itself.
