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 the Buffalo Bar and MaKuwa-Kuwa Restaurant.

Vulture Culture Experience

Don’t miss the opportunity to witness the spectacular sight of hundreds of vultures in this educational activity.

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.

Bird Hide And Nature Trails

A bird hide sit on the Victoria Falls Safari Lodge estate, offering the chance to spot a variety of different species, including guinea fowl, kingfishers, shrikes and doves, is a great way to while away an hour, and is suitable for all age groups.

The bird hide is surrounded by nature trails where bushbuck and warthogs are commonly sighted.

Both the bird hide and the nature trails can be explored at guests’ own leisure.

Don’t forget to bring along a hat, water and binoculars.

Special arrangements may be made for groups.
