This safari starts in Livingstone, Zambia at the Waterfront Resort camp, situated on the banks of the Zambezi River a few kilometres from Livingstone. It’s an ideal spot to relax – have coffee on the deck watching one of Africa’s great rivers glide past or take the opportunity if you wish to enjoy the various activities and excursions typically available in the Victoria Falls area. Please plan to spend a day or so here before the tour begins. Optional activities include white water rafting, bungee jumping, abseiling, gorge swinging, canoeing, horse riding, scenic flights (by microlight, helicopter or small plane) and – a definite ‘must!’ – A visit to the Victoria Falls themselves. A visit to the national park is included in your tour – be sure not to miss it – at over a mile wide and some 100 metres deep the Falls at high water form the largest curtain of falling water in the world with spray visible from 20 kilometres away (hence the local name Mosi oa Tunya, or ‘Smoke that Thunders’). At low water the Zambezi dries so much that it is possible to walk out onto the river bed itself!
N.B: For the sake of practicality, meals in Livingstone/Victoria Falls area are restricted to breakfasts. This allows you to take on half day or full day activities (some of which include lunch) without having to be back for group mealtimes. The Waterfront camp restaurant overlooks the Zambezi River and offers a good selection of reasonably priced meals and snacks throughout the day (allow US$15-$30 per meal). Relax and enjoy at your own leisure. Alternatively, take a taxi into Livingstone to try local fare.
