Welcome to Zambia

The rewards of travelling in Zambia are those of exploring remote, mesmerising wilderness as full of an astonishing diversity of wildlife as any part of Southern Africa. Adventures undertaken here will lead you deep into the bush where animals, both predators and prey, wander through unfenced camps, where night-time means swapping stories around the fire and where the human footprint is nowhere to be seen.

Victoria Falls Helicopter Tour

Start your experience with a pickup from your Victoria Falls hotel and travel by minibus to the helipad near Elephant Hills Inter-Continental Hotel. Listen to a safety briefing, and then board your 10-seater helicopter to head to the skies of Zimbabwe!Leaving the urban sights behind you, your first airborne view is of the Zambezi River – a long narrow ribbon in the earth that separates the national parks of Zimbabwe and Zambia. See its torrents of water gush toward the basalt gorges that comprise Victoria Falls – the waterfall that’s listed as one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World.Taking into account width and height (roughly 1.2 miles (2km) wide and 360 feet (108m) high), Victoria Falls is the world’s largest waterfall, and certainly one of the most spectacular. Gaze down at the crashing waters and spray as your helicopter flies around in a figure-eight loop above the falls, allowing every person on board to enjoy clear views.The windows on your helicopter have been modified with clear glass sides, so – even if you don’t get one of the window seats – you’ll enjoy unobstructed views throughout the flight. After roughly 13 minutes in the air, loop back to Elephant Hills and touch down back at the start point. Before leaving, your pilot will give you a souvenir video and photo of your helicopter experience.

Sunset Zambezi River Cruise from Livingstone

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 Walking Tour

Choose from a morning or afternoon tour, and then start your tour with a pickup from your centrally located Livingstone hotel. On your way to the falls, stop on the banks of the Zambezi River for a photo op next to 'The Big Tree' — an impressive baobab that is believed to be more than 1,000 years old. From there, your minibus delivers you to the rainforest on the fringes of Victoria Falls, where you set off on a mild walk along the lush trails. Listed as one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World, the waterfall is also known as Mosi-oa-Tunya, meaning ‘smoke that thunders’ in Kololo. It's a name that resonates considering you can admire the mist of the roaring falls from some 20 miles (32 km) away.As you explore the pretty rainforest trails that surround the falls, marvel at the sight of the Zambezi River plunging down a series of basalt gorges. At roughly 1.2 miles (2 km) wide and 360 feet (108 m) tall, Victoria Falls is one of the world’s largest waterfalls — it's double the size of Niagara Falls.Look out for Livingstone’s Statue that looks out over the Devil’s Cataract — a natural pool that marks the lowest point of the falls — and learn about the monument's namesake, David Livingstone. The intrepid explorer brought Victoria Falls to the world’s attention when he stumbled upon them in 1855. Instantly stunned by the falls’ grandeur, he decided to name them after Queen Victoria. After two hours of exploring the rainforest trails around the waterfall, return to your coach and finish your tour with a hotel drop-off in Livingstone.
