CANOEING

CANOE SAFARI

Probably the best way to appreciate the beauty, peace and wildlife of the Zambezi River above the Victoria Falls is to paddle slowly downstream in a canoe with some of the best wildlife guides in Africa. Watch the Pied Kingfisher hover and dive, listen to the haunting call of the fish eagle and the grunts of the hippo, see elephant, buffalo, and other animals come down to drink and
explore the islands and waterways along the route. There is time to stop for something to drink and listen to tales of Livingstone's journey to the Victoria Falls.

There are 5 ½ hour river safaris which begin in the morning and include tea, coffee, and soft drinks. A full day safari lasts 9 hours and includes a cold lunch with wine, soft drinks and beer. Guests are picked up from the Day Activity Centre at 08h00 and dropped off again at 13h30 for a half-day safari and 17h00 for the full day safari.

Fishing

FISHING

The Zambezi is famous for one of the great freshwater game fish - The Tigerfish. Powerful, swift predators Tigerfish are a thrill to catch and require a great deal of fishing skill with a good river specimen weighing over 15 lbs. Bream, or Tilapia, also live in large numbers in the river and although they don't fight quite as aggressively as the Tiger, a good 5 lb fish will quickly snap light tackle given half the chance. Spinners and lures are the most common method of catching these fish although using light tackle, a fly and a fly-rod is becoming very popular and brings an extra dimension to a very exciting sport.
Pick up is at the Day Activity Centre before a drive to one of the launch sites to board the boat and set off to the fishing grounds. A half-day trip either begins at 06h30 and ends at 13h30 or pick up is at 13h30 and drop off is at 18h30. The trip includes transfers, tea and coffee, soft drinks, beer and fishing tackle.

Jet-Boat

JET-BOAT EXTREME

One of the most thrilling 30 minutes of your life is about to begin. After the ride, you no longer have to walk the 880 feet out of the gorge as you now board the cable car for the 8 minute ride out.

Livingstone Island

Livingstone Island

Maximum of 16 guests on the island at a time.
Dr. David Livingstone was paddled in a dugout canoe through swift rapids towards the roar and rising cloud of mist suspended above a cliff over which the whole of the Zambezi River plunged. The Makololo paddlers skillfully landed him on 'Goat Island'
(now Livingstone Island) right on the lip of the chasm.

A few steps through the small rainforest and, on the 16th November 1855, he gazed upon one of the most spectacular sights in the world – 'Mosi-oa-Tunya' (The Smoke that Thunders) which he named after his Queen as The Victoria Falls. Livingstone Island is a 5-8 minutes boat ride from the Royal Livingstone Hotel and is located in the middle of the Zambezi River, touching the lip of the Victoria Falls, where the water thunders down the 103m drop.

Access to this unique Island is seasonal and depends entirely on the water level in the Zambezi River. All visits to the island are during the 'low water' season, which usually begins in mid July and goes through to the end of January. High water visits are not possible as the island is continuously covered in the spray/downpour from the Victoria Falls.The trip includes a short guided tour of the island, viewing the Victoria Falls and a light snack depending on the time of the morning visits.

guides are highly trained experts in the behaviour of elephants and the wildlife around them. Half day trails are available both in the morning and afternoon.The elephant back safari trails begin at Thorntree Lodge in the Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park which is an attractive lodge overlooking the Zambezi River.

Tea, coffee and cordials are served upon arrival and after a short introductory talk and safety-briefing guests are introduced to the elephants and their handlers before mounting the great animals. The handler and no more than two guests on each animal then head off through the riverine bush, crossing the river in shallow water to get onto the many islands. Halfway through the ride guests will dismount and interact with the elephants on the ground giving the guides an opportunity to make an interesting and informative explanation about the African Elephant and their relationship with man. Elephant back safaris in the morning last about 4 hours and end with a full English breakfast and the opportunity to view a video of each guest's elephant ride. The price includes transfers, tea, coffee, breakfast and cordial drinks. The afternoon elephant back safaris go on for about 4 hours with snacks at the end of the day and the opportunity to view a video of each guest's elephant ride.

Zambian Tour of the Falls

Departure – On Request
Duration – 2 hours
Language – English (French, German, Italian & Spanish available on private tours, at supplement cost – subject to availability)
Highlights - To discover how the Falls were formed and what local customs and traditions surround them it is well worth booking a Wild Horizons tour of the Falls. Described by the Kololo tribe living in the area in the 1800’s as ‘Mosi-oa-Tunya’ - ‘the Smoke that Thunders’ and in more modern terms as ‘the greatest known curtain of falling water’, Victoria Falls are a spectacular sight of awe-inspiring beauty and grandeur on the Zambezi River, bordering Zambia and Zimbabwe.

A path along the edge of the forest provides the visitor who is prepared to brave the tremendous spray with an unparalleled series of views of the Falls. One special vantage point is across the Knife edge bridge, where visitors can have the finest view of the Eastern Cataract and the Main Falls as well as the Boiling Pot where the river turns and heads down the Batoka Gorge. Other vantage points include the Falls bridge and the Lookout Tree which commands a panoramic view across the Main Falls. Different times of the year will provide completely different experiences of the Falls region.

Peak flood season is around March and April and the full power of the falls can be experienced in all its glory. As the floods abate the view of the falls gets better and better through the year, but at its lowest, around November and December the Falls become little rivulets running over the edge and in some places along the 1,7km width no water falls at all.
Please note: During this time, it is recommended guests book a tour of the falls on the
Zimbabwean side.
