Bush walks

Explore the wilderness on foot under the guidance and education of your own personal guide. Feel your senses ignite as you become part of life in the bush and encounter game without the parameters of a vehicle.

Guided tour of the falls

A tour around the Victoria Falls affords not only a view of one of the seven wonders of the natural world but information about their creation and geology, the unique ecosystem of the rain forest, daring exploits of colonial explorers, and magical tales of local legend under the constant spray from the “The Smoke that Thunders.” The tour guides will ensure the best photographic opportunities of the world heritage site while providing fascinating facts and figures of the iconic waterfall.

Mokoro excursions

Become part of the bustling river life by easing between the papyrus clad banks on traditional mokoro canoes. Those are propelled from the stern by skilled poler guides, allowing the guests to sit back and absorb the scenery. For full day trips, Gunn's Camp prepares delicious picnic lunches which can be enjoyed on a Delta island after an exhilarating bush walk.

Sunset cruise on Zambezi:

Shearwater operates a variety of cruises on the upper stretches of the Zambezi River above the Victoria Falls. Cruise where David Livingstone canoed on his quest to discover the falls over 150 years ago. Soak up the spectacular scenery offering unrivaled photographic opportunities of this iconic African river which is home to abundant wildlife and an incredible variety of birds.

It is not unusual to spot families of elephant swimming from island to island or to get close to the ferocious Nile crocodile and pods of hippo in their natural habitat, and there is nothing as beautiful as a Zambezi sunset.

This safari will take place in Okavango Delta on Botswana, and Zambezi River and Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe.

Okavango Delta

The Okavango is an immense river that never meets the sea. Instead, its crystal clear waters spread across the Kalahari Desert, forming Africa's largest wetland wonder. The Delta is an abundant oasis amid the vast plains and pans of the desert that covers most of Southern Africa. Its waterways are a mesh of meandering and intercepting channels, creating a haven for Africa's most celebrated wildlife.

During this safari, your meals will consist of five breakfasts, three lunches, and four dinners. These will be provided for you by Albatros Travel. At Moremi Crossing Safari Lodge, your full-board stay includes all meals, snacks, teas and coffees, and alcoholic and non-alcoholic local brand beverages.

Island camping

The camp managers will pack your mokoro with basic camping equipment and food so that you can set out with your own personal guide to find an island where you will set up camp. The evening will be spent preparing dinner around the campfire in the company of Africa's nocturnal wildlife. The rustic experience is subject to availability, and must be pre-booked in advance. On day five of your safari, you can explore other activities.
