Day 1: Livingstone, Zambia
This tour starts with a visit to the Victoria Falls, at various times of year the spray from the ‘Falls’ can be seen from up to 20 or 30 kilometres away, hence the local name ‘Mosi oa Tunya’ – the ‘Smoke that Thunders’. Don’t forget your raincoat to keep you and your camera dry!
We highly suggest booking a few days pre tour accommodation in order for you to explore the Victoria Falls area to the full. Activities available in the region (typically these include rafting, canoeing, bungee, abseiling, gorge swinging, elephant and horse riding, scenic flights, river cruises), allowing you to plan your time accordingly.
Apart from the adventure activities already mentioned, check out the markets and fascinating museum in nearby Livingstone, volunteer a day in a local project, go on a day trip to Victoria Falls Township in Zimbabwe, or simply relax on the beautiful campsite deck and watch the Zambezi River flow quickly past on its way to Victoria Falls.
Our campsite is surrounded by the Mosi au Tunya National Park so for those wanting more game drives these are available on your doorstep! Elephants crossing the Zambezi River from Zimbabwe can be seen as well as giraffe, buffalo, white rhino, eland, warthog, hippo as well as a variety of different monkey species.
: 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 back with the 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 these few days at your own leisure. Alternatively, take a taxi into Livingstone to try local fare
