We want our guests to experience a truly intimate, entertaining and one of the most enjoyable experiences of a lifetime. This opportunity to integrate with the African bush and its animals is a one off expedition.
David Livingstone, the Scottish missionary and explorer, is believed to have been the first European to view Victoria Falls on 16 November 1855. He wrote of the falls, "No one can imagine the beauty of the view. It had never been seen before by European eyes; but scenes so lovely must have been gazed upon by angels in their flight."
Victoria Falls is classified as the largest sheet of falling water in the world.
A famous feature is the naturally formed "Armchair" (sometimes called "Devil's Pool"), near the edge of the falls on Livingstone Island on the Zambian side. When the river flow is at a certain level, usually between September and December, a rock barrier forms an eddy with minimal current, allowing adventurous swimmers to splash around in relative safety a few feet from the point where the water cascades over the falls.
The national parks around the falls contain abundant wildlife. Whilst staying at Victoria Falls we will have the opportunity to go on an early morning safari.
Is an area of outstanding natural beauty and phenomenal wildlife. The best way to see what this park has to offer is on foot. Here the Zambezi River, flowing slowly eastwards for thousands of years, has left behind the remains of old river channels forming small seasonal ponds and pools.
Today Mana Pools is the stage for one of Africa’s greatest natural spectacles attracting hordes of animals during the long, hot African summer.
Lots of zebras, kudu, eland, impala, and other antelope species flourish among which the lion and the leopard, the hyena and wild dogs find easy pickings.
The Zambezi is the fourth-longest river in Africa. Of course the best way to see game is to paddle down this majestic river.
See lots of Hippo, Nile crocodiles, lions, elephants and much, much more whilst sedately paddling your canoe. The birdlife is amazing.
Sitting on the banks of the river after a day’s paddling partaking in the traditional African sundowner is when Africa will show off her magnificent and truly spectacular sunsets.
