Victoria Falls Safari
A Victoria Falls Safari is one of the best activities to enjoy. Victoria Falls River Lodge is situated in the Zambezi National Park, home to some of Africa’s most fascinating animals. Elephant, hippo, crocodile, buffalo, giraffe, zebra, sable, kudu, impala wild dog and the occasional big cat can be viewed in the park (to name but a few).
Our trained Field Guides offer guests several safari options.
A choice of two of the following game activities is included in our accommodation rate:
- Morning / Afternoon Game Drive and
- Sunrise / Sunset River Cruise
Morning Game Drive
For the ultimate victoria falls safari experience, head out in a game-viewer to explore the 150,000 acres that make up the Zambezi National Park. Armed with hot beverages and a delicious supply of traditionally baked ‘rusks’, be the first to catch the ‘bush telegraphs’ early broadcast of the previous night’s events.
Afternoon Game Drive
Alternatively, track a magnificent elephant herd as they move silently through the bush or admire stately giraffe as they effortlessly weave their way through spikey acacia thicket – stopping to enjoy the phenomenal sunset with sun-downers and a variety of scrumptious snacks – before returning to Camp for dinner.
