With Livingstone in Zambia and Victoria Falls town in Zimbabwe.

Both are the hot-spots of activity and tourism in the area, offering an array of Adventure options. Here are some activities from adrenalin-packed adventure, the astonishing Zambezi sunsets, to the unparallel beauty of the real Africa.

Mosi-Oa-Tunya National Park, Game Drives/Safaris:
See the ONLY 5 white rhinos in Zambia plus giraffe, elephant, hippos, crocs, buffalo, zebra, wildebeest, warthog, antelope and many species of birds. This is also the point of the first European settlement north of the Zambezi. Three hours is spent cruising around the park, sipping soft drinks and getting super close to some of the most amazing creatures on earth!

White Water Rafting:
There is no denying it – the Zambezi provides the best rafting trip on the planet! The mighty Zambezi is one of the reasons that so many of us choose to make Victoria Falls our home away from home. You’ll crash through some of the biggest commercially run rapids in the world (grades 3-5) while taking in the breathtaking scenery of the Batoka Gorge.

White Water Rafting Multi-day Trip:
If you are keen for the ultimate thrill then a multi-day trip along the Zambezi is it! After a full day of rafting, you’ll set up camp in the Batoka Gorge and listen as the wildlife, gaze into the campfire and a down a few cold drinks before you settle in for the night. Rise to a big breakfast, and the crazy adventure starts again! Perfect for a group (4+ persons) traveling together.

Bungi Jumping:
The Victoria Falls Bungi Bridge is 111 meters of pure African adrenaline and still one of the highest Bungi bridges in world! The bridge itself forms the border between Zimbabwe and Zambia and has its own little piece of history for being a major part of Rhodes’ Cape to Cairo railway. After screaming, crying, praying and thanking God that the elastic is still tied to your ankles, you’ll bounce around to the sites of Victoria Falls and the Batoka Gorge.

River Boarding/Boogie Boarding:
For those of you wanting to catch the perfect wave that never breaks, this is the best! Begin your day by grabbing a board, slapping on some fins and learning some tricks with your qualified guide before heading down into some HUGE walls of water. This can be combined with a rafting trip. No experience necessary but if you’re a surfer, this is a must!

Tandem Kayaking:
Maximum weight 95kg. If you aren’t yet comfortable to challenge the Zambezi on your own, then this is the next best thing! Start your day by learning to paddle and roll while your personal guide is always right behind. You’ll brave the river along with the daily rafting trip so all meals, drinks etc. – are included.
Kayaking:
Come and play with World-class international freestyle paddlers as they guide you on your kayak trip of a lifetime.

Victoria Falls big rapids, flat pools, warm water, sunshine!

Jet Boating:
Livingstone newest thrill! Jump in the NZ built, specially designed boat and get up to speeds of almost 90 km per hour!

The choice is yours to either drive out through the picturesque villages of Mukuni and Machenge or helicopter out and over the Victoria Falls.
