Zambezi Horse, Canoe and Elephant Safari (7 & 8 days)
Victoria Falls - Zambezi Horse, Canoe and
Welcome to Victoria Falls -
by some measures, the largest waterfall in the world, as well as
being among the most unusual in form, and having arguably the most
diverse and easily seen wildlife of any major waterfall site. This
is your starting point for an extraordinary week with lots of horseback
riding in excellent wild game areas. You will find Zimbabweans to
be extremely friendly and those who visit the country can expect
the royal treatment. While the worlds media focuses on the
government of Zimbabwe, visitors will see a very different image
of the country. The area around Victoria Falls (neighboring Zambia),
in particular, is very safe and welcoming! Overnights are luxurious
safari lodges and safari camps along the way.
Ride across the rolling Kalahari sand dunes covered with gras and
woodland, ride through dramatic escarpments of the teak forests,
to Mopane Woodland, the cool shady Riverine forest along the Zambezi.
Venture over hills and ravines above the Zambezi gorges, with a
birds eye view of the rapids below Victoria Falls. There are plenty
of opportunities to canter on these rides game permitting.
This is an area where you and your horse can stand in the middle
of a herd of browsing Kudu watching the Giraffes in the distance.
You will have an elephant and lion encounter along the way and finish
off your week on a full day canoeing on the upper Zambezi River
before spending your last night at the luxurious Imbabala Safari
Lode at the edge of Chobe National Park - with one of the highest
elephant populations anywhere. A sunset river cruise and morning
game drive are some of the highlights before departing from Victoria
Falls in the afternoon.
We offer a unique and stimulating wildlife adventure from Victoria
Falls (Zimbabwe). Situated on the Masuwe Estate, only 10 minutes
from the center of Victoria Falls town you'll find a group of lion
cubs ranging from 3 to 16 months of age. These lion cubs offer guests
an unparalleled experience and insight into the behavior of this
threatened African species. The walking with lions encounter
is an opportunity to interact with 2 or 3 cubs for up to an hour
and a half during a single session. The lions are unrestrained and
roam free as you join them on a walk through riverine vegetation
and African bush on the banks of the Masuwe River. The encounter
is fully supervised and professionally managed by an experienced
and qualified team who have been working with lions for over 20
years originally at Gwerus Antelope Park.
Elephant Encounter - Safari
Join us for an extraordinary and exhilarating journey along the
edge of the Zambezi gorges following ancient game trails. Seated
comfortably on the back of natures true king of the beasts,
experience an age old tradition whilst silently exploring the majestic
grasslands of Victoria Falls National Park and marvel at the spectacular
scenery of Masuie river plunging 120 m into the Zambezi below. Be
witness to this mutually enriching and rewarding relationship between
man and elephant in a modern day Africa. Sunset safaris are run
daily, promising you much more than just a game-viewing experience,
but rather a closer insight into the worlds largest land mammal,
the African Elephant.
