Game Drive/Rhino Walk
Meet one of Africa’s “Big Five” – the rare rhinoceros on a wilderness walk through the Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park just upstream from the mighty Victoria Falls. 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
Victoria Falls Guided Tour
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.

Livingstone Town Tour
Livingstone was an important town in Southern Africa during the first days of European settlement and the beginnings of Colonial rule. It served as the capital of the British Protectorate of Northern Rhodesia from 1911 – 1935. As the capital, it enjoyed excellent facilities far superior to anything in the country as can be seen from the surviving Edwardian colonial buildings that line the city’s main road. In 1935, Lusaka was named the capital, and the once bustling city of Livingstone became a quiet town. However, because of its proximity to the Zambezi River and the Victoria Falls, it has become a thriving town which, whilst retaining its African charm, is now known as Africa’s Adventure Capital. The town of Livingstone was moved from its original site at the Old Drift in 1905, due to malarial outbreaks and moved to its healthier location on Constitution hill. The town was carefully planned with wide streets lined with trees; a lot of the original architecture is still in place today. The tour is based on the client’s requests and starts with a visit to the Livingstone Museum, this is Zambia’s oldest and largest museum where you can learn about Zambia’s culture and natural heritage. Here you will also get a fascinating insight into Dr David Livingstone, the world-renowned philanthropist and missionary. The museum houses a comprehensive collection of David Livingstone memorabilia some of his original belongings including letters, journal entries and several photographs. Next you will take a memorable trip to Mukuni Curio Market and onto Maramba Market. This is the largest market in Livingstone – colourful, vibrant and bustling with activity. Here the local people sell everything; “chitenges” (brightly coloured fabric), fruit and vegetables, grains and rice, pots and pans made out of old motorcars, farm tools, chickens, beads and clothes. This is where the people of Livingstone come to shop! A guide will accompany you and with the help of some bargaining skills. Some very interesting and authentic artefacts can be bought here. This tour is a most unusual and rewarding experience for the clever shopper. The Railway Museum is housed in the Zambezi Sawmill’s historic locomotive sheds, this steam railway museum display artefacts dating back to the height of the railway industry in the 1930’s when the Zambezi Sawmills Railways was reputed to have the world’s longest rail-line. Exhibits include one of the country’s first locomotives and other rolling stock.
