What a day it must have been for the great explorer and missionary, David
Livingstone, when he came across the mighty Victoria Falls. The sight and sound of the massive Zambezi River rushing and crashing into the gorge below, could only have taken his breath away, as it will yours so many years later. The local people, both in Zimbabwe and Zambia, refer to the Falls as Mosi-oa-Tunya, which means The Smoke That Thunders. You’ll see why.

Jet Boat Adventure

A white-knuckle adventure. Up for it? This extreme 30-minute power-boating adventure will curl your toes, so hang on tight as the jet boat races and spins in the gorge at an alarming speed! Jet engines propel the boats over the rapids below the Falls, at around 100 kilometres an hour. You’ll be ‘buzzing’ rock faces and ‘jet spinning’ in the spectacular setting of Batoka Gorge, so if you’re serious about water sports with a kick, our Jet Boat Adventure was designed with you in mind.
Note: You will be required to walk in and out of the gorge.

Victoria Falls River Safaris

Here’s a unique wildlife safari experience! No stamina needed. Just climb aboard our jet-propelled boats, as we set off weaving our way stealthily through the numerous channels and islands of the Zambezi River, edging up closer to wildlife than is imaginable. It’s a wonderfully unobtrusive way to approach game such as hippos and crocs – and many others – as they come down to the river’s edge to drink. And for birders? Plentiful, it’s paradise. Our jet-propelled boat carries snacks and local drinks – wine excluded, but we have it for sale – so it’s sundowners with the hippos...and who knows what else?

Livingstone Island Lunch

Stand where David Livingstone stood when he first discovered and measured the Falls! It’s a moving moment. Our visit is to Livingstone Island, a mere 10 minute river-boat ride away from shore, on the Zambezi River, a location for a most memorable lunch experience. The theatre of the experience and the extreme beauty of the views are matched only by the diversity of the bird life – it’s a wonderful way to soak up the African bush. You’ll be viewing the Falls from a unique vantage point, right at the point where the water thunders down a 100 metre drop. Nothing like a view of that magnitude to add to the flavour of drinks and lunch on Livingstone Island!

Tour Of The Falls

It’s hard to believe. Six hundred and fifty million litres of water from the Zambezi River crashes with great aplomb into the chasm below, which is of course, why the locals call Victoria Falls, Mosi-oa-Tunya, the smoke that thunders. The smoke is the permanent mist, spray, even rain, which hangs over the Falls and the surrounding forest...and the thunder? You’ll hear it for yourself. The force and power of the Falls almost defies belief. We visit the Falls from the Zambian side, and when it’s in full flow, you’ll experience the showers from the crushing Falls below. Raincoats needed!
Please Note: The Falls on the Zambian side may dry out seasonally (Sep – Dec). During this time we recommend you view the Falls on the Zimbabwean side. We also offer a combination tour which takes you to both the Zambian and Zimbabwean side of the Falls.

Full Day Chobe Day Trip

This is a sensational trip - land- and water-based game viewing. Your first game sighting is from The Chobe River, teaming with animals, you sitting securely on board, just off the riverbank, game viewing from the relaxing vantage point of a boat. You’re on the mighty Chobe River which flows through the renowned Chobe National Park providing a haven for herds of grazing animals and bird life. Just sit back, relax, and keep those binoculars handy. Watch this glorious scene unfolding itself – large herds of elephant, often with the tiniest frolicking calves, kicking up dust as they wait their turn at the water’s edge to drink. Frighteningly large crocodiles sun themselves on the banks of the river, mouths agape, teeth terrifying. Glorious birdlife, wonderful game, and the gentle rocking of the riverboat. Can life get any better?
Apparently. When we disembark, we join our open safari vehicle for a drive through the Chobe Game Reserve with the chance of seeing more wildlife and birdlife, and a gorgeous lunch at a lodge awaiting us....overlooking the Chobe River. Let’s call it the ultimate.

Abseiling, Flying Fox And Gorge Swing

This is for those of strong stomachs and iron wills...not unlike the Iron Man or Women contest. If you’re up for anything, you’ll be up for this extreme, adrenaline-packed excursion with the opportunity to do as many of these suggested mind-blowing activities as you can literally manage in the allotted time. Half a day of extreme sports, set on the edge of the Batoka Gorge, 300m away from the Victoria Falls. You could start with Abseiling (moving down the slope backwards) or ‘rap jump’ facing forward down the 53 metre gorge. Or why not take to flight on the Flying Fox, which allows you to ‘fly’ over the gorge while attached to a cable - you’ll be winched back to earth. And if you’re still hankering for more, here’s one you’ll love…The Gorge Swing. In short, you throw yourself off the edge of the gorge in a body harness, and freefall before ending your jump with numerous pendulum swings. This is a half – or full day – for those keen to push themselves to their limit. The very limit, and walk away laughing.
Note: All options require that you walk out of the gorge after each activity.

Elephant Back Safari

There you are, sitting up high on the back of a massive, placid elephant, with the world and wildlife at your feet! It’s an extraordinary way to view nature, for the surrounding wildlife is entirely unafraid, contrary to their reaction to the normal human presence. After a short safety briefing and introduction, you’ll be introduced to the elephants and their handlers before setting off for just under an hour on the back of these giant mammals. Each elephant carries a single handler, and no more than two guests. On return from the bush, you dismount, and will be encouraged to interact with the elephants, while the knowledgeable guides share their knowledge with you. It’s an extraordinary experience communicating, if you like, with the elephants, being up so close to one. Savour every moment.
All activities take place on the Zimbabwean side of the Falls. Duration times vary.
