Home to Victoria Falls, the area around Livingstone and across both nearby land borders in Zimbabwe and Chobe in Botswana provide a plethora of possibilities for adventure and excitement. From something sedate like canoeing on the upper river to exhilarating and unique delights such as seeing the waterfall from the air on a helicopter or micro-light ‘flight of the angels’, to visiting Livingstone Island where the famous seasonal Devils and Angels Pools are, the amazing Ele-Café in the nearby Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park and world-class grade-five White Water Rafting, going on a game walk with tracking the white rhino as the end goal to name but a few (the list is almost endless!) there really is something for everyone to enjoy here.
Professionally guided canoe safaris take you through the narrow channels on the incredible Zambezi River where you will experience breathtaking scenery and incredible game viewing. With a choice of a half day or full day canoeing excursion, the experience can be as active as you wish.
Built on an elevated wooden deck on the Zambezi River, interact with the resident family of hand-reared elephants and enjoy a leisurely meal gazing over the breathtaking river listening to the sounds of the bush.
Dining on the Royal Livingstone Express
Dine in the luxurious comfort of an air-conditioned vintage, dinner steam train as you travel along this section of the famed “Cape to Cairo” route. Your journey takes you to the bridge at Victoria Falls to gaze upon the Falls in the evening before your five-course dinner is served.
For a more active, authentic experience, walking safaris in the Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park can be arranged with a knowledgeable guide. If possible, gaze upon the rhino from a distance or discover the abundance of wild animals in the area including a magnificent array of birdlife.
Riding through the teak forests and wilderness areas, crossing over rivers and exploring along the banks of the river... The elevated position of a horseback safari is one of the better ways to enjoy the inspiring natural beauty of the local bush and river-side.
Chobe National Park (Botswana)
Looking to venture a bit further afield? Chobe National Park is an ideal day trip into neighbouring Botswana for a pristine bush experience. The park overlooks the Chobe river and offers spectacular views over the floodplains and is home to a large concentration of browsing and grazing animals.
Devil's Pool is situated adjacent to Livingstone Island at the top of the Victoria Falls. Enjoy a breakfast or lunch on the island and a dip in Devil's Pool, right on the edge of the Falls. This activity is usually open between mid-August and mid-January, depending on water levels.
