Sunset Cruise

Sit back, relax and soak up the last rays of the African sun as you gently drift along the Zambezi River above the Falls with a gin and tonic in hand and enjoying delicious snacks. Look out for elephant, hippo, crocodile, magnificent birds and other wildlife.

The finale of the cruise is the unforgettable sight of the sun setting over the Zambezi River, turning the sky into a myriad of reds, oranges and pinks and casting shadows and silhouettes all around.

The Victoria Falls

Victoria Falls, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and the largest curtain of falling water in the world, can be enjoyed from the Zimbabwean side of the Falls every day of the year.

On this tour you will be accompanied through the Rainforest by a qualified guide who will give a brief history of the Falls, as well as detailing the flora, fauna and other points of interest.

Lunar Rainbow tours are available during full moon nights, and the nights before and after.

 

White Water Rafting

Arguably the wildest white water in the world, rafting the mighty Zambezi River is the ultimate adrenaline rush. The Zambezi rapids are officially defined as Grade 5 (Grade 6 being commercially un-runnable).

The rafting experience begins at 7am when you are collected from your hotel.

Save some energy for the steep walk out of the gorge at the end of an action-packed morning, where an ice-cold drink and a well-earned lunch awaits you.

Adrenaline Highwire Activities

Be daring and test your limits with the high wire activities from the ‘Look-Out’, set on the spectacular cliffs of the Batoka Gorge, just 300m from the Victoria Falls.

Nature and Wildlife

The Victoria Falls Safari Lodge estate offers an authentic wildlife experience with onsite activities that bring you closer to nature.

Onsite Waterhole

Victoria Falls Safari Lodge estate is located on a plateau overlooking a waterhole which attracts a variety of wildlife including elephant, buffalo, kudu, waterbuck, impala as well as a large number of bird species.

Game may be seen at the waterhole from the Victoria Falls Safari Lodge’s viewing deck, pool deck or over drinks or a meal at Vulture Culture Experience the Buffalo Bar and MaKuwa-Kuwa Restaurant.

 

Vulture Culture Experience

 

Don’t miss the opportunity to witness the spectacular sight of hundreds of vultures swooping down to feed on leftover meat scraps and bones from the estate’s onsite restaurants.

As well as providing the opportunity for visitors to spot white headed vultures, hooded vultures, lappet faced vultures and white backed vultures, this supplementary feeding program aids the survival of these remarkable, but endangered birds.

The activity, which is free and appeals to all age groups, takes place daily at 1pm in front of Victoria Falls Safari Lodge, and highlights the ecological importance of vultures and the plight they are facing.

Vulture populations are dwindling due to a variety of human created issues, including poisoning and electrocution by power lines.

Siduli Hide

A sit in the Siduli Hide at the edge of the Victoria Falls Safari Lodge waterhole offers the incredible opportunity to watch wildlife at very close quarters for a sustained period.

Cleverly designed to look like a termite mound, guests are concealed inside the hide, from where they may closely observe large herds of elephant and buffalo, as well as kudu, warthogs, crocodiles, marabou storks, vultures and more. The hide sit, ideal for keen photographers and wildlife enthusiasts who seek a unique and exclusive way to enjoy wildlife while visiting Victoria Falls, is run by professional guide Charles Brightman.

The two-hour activity, which is available to groups of up to six, is best done in the early morning or late afternoon.
