Welcome to Zambia


Though landlocked, three great rivers – the Kafue, the Luangwa and the Zambezi – flow through Zambia, defining both its geography and the rhythms of life for many of its people. For the independent traveller, however, Zambia is a logistical challenge, because of its sheer size, dilapidated road network and upmarket facilities. For those who do venture here, the relative lack of crowds means an even more satisfying journey.

Livingstone to Zambezi River 2-Hour Sunset Safari Cruise

Leave your Livingstone hotel and travel to the nearby banks of the Zambezi River, a famous stretch of water that snakes its way through the savannah plains and swamplands of six different countries on route to the Indian Ocean. At the water’s edge, hop aboard your sightseeing boat and take a seat on deck, enjoying a selection of finger snacks, such as crisps and nuts, as well as a drink from the onboard bar. One glass of Champagne is included, and all other drinks – beer, wine and soft drinks – are unlimited! With drink in hand, settle back and gaze out at the river to take stock of the rich wildlife floating around you. Have your camera ready to capture sights of hippos wallowing in the shallows and crocodiles snaking along the water’s edge; the colorful birdlife is camera worthy, too.As the sun goes down, many of the land-based wildlife of Victoria Falls National Park head down to the river to drink, bathe and graze. Look out for Cape buffalo and giraffes, as well as the herds of elephants that often cross the river around sunset.After three hours cruising up and down a stretch of the Zambezi River, seeing the sunset sights, return to the riverbank and step back onto dry land. Your experience then finishes with a hotel drop-off in Livingstone.

Victoria Falls Tour from Livingstone

After hotel pickup in Livingstone, head to Victoria Falls to begin your walking tour around this World Heritage–listed waterfall on the Zambezi River, forming the border between Zambia and Zimbabwe. The falls are spectacular at any time of year, whether high season (April to August), with curtains of spray and roaring water, or low season (September to March), when you can stare down the rock face between trickles of water to the bottom, where fish swim below the Knife-edge Bridge. Known by the Kololo people as Mosi-oa-Tunya, ‘The Smoke that Thunders,’ Victoria Falls is the world's largest sheet of falling water, even though it's not the widest or tallest waterfall. During your time here, visit a vantage point across the Knife-edge Bridge for a view of the Eastern Cataract and the Main Falls, as well as the Boiling Pot, where the river turns and heads down Batoka Gorge. Other vantage points include Victoria Falls Bridge, Devil's Pool, and other Lockout points, which provides panoramic views across the Main Falls.

Half-Day Nature Walk in Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park from Livingstone

Your tour starts with hotel pickup in Livingstone for the drive to Musi-oa-Tunya National Park, where your nature walk takes place with your guide. Nature walks provide a more natural and eco-friendly way of viewing African game, birds, and plantlife instead of a safari vehicle. Plus, on this walk, you have flexibility with your guide to spend longer than the standard duration of three hours, if you wish. This park is home to three of Africa's Big Five animals—elephant, buffalo, and a big part of Zambia's white rhino population. Your guide will also show you wildlife such as giraffes, zebras, wildebeest, warthogs, primates, and antelopes—to mention but a few—as well as the local tree varieties, including teaks, mahoganies, and the mopane and marula trees, a favorite of the elephants. During a mid-walk break, perhaps near the Zambezi River, aka Kasamba Bezi, you'll have the chance to observe hippos and ibis along the riverbanks. When your time ends, you'll be returned to your pickup location to end your tour. This walking safari through the park and surrounding area is suitable for active and adventurous participants.
