A game drive in a safari 4X4 truck starts immediately after breakfast and drives would be concentrated around water holes where animals frequently visit to quench their thirst.

Afternoon Game Drives
As the sun goes down animals are usually found near water holes, so our drives will be around different water holes, provided by the National Parks. This includes stops at the hide out or viewing platform where one can view the animals from above and a lot of action usually takes place at these hide outs. Many different species of birds is seen here. By dusk you would be leaving the park driving back to the hotel in a closed vehicle. On a good day you could see the Big Five on this trip.

Horse Riding

The best way to experience the African bush is on horseback. Trips ranging from half day novice rides to full and multi day adventures for experienced riders that reach far into impressive Teak forests, Mopani woodland and sub-riverine bush to explore the impressive scenery above the Batoka Gorge.

A variety of birdlife can be observed along the route. All rides are led by experienced guides, and rides cater for experienced or novice riders.

Novice riders are accompanied on short horse trails that last up to 3 hours. These rides occur in an area where there is a high concentration of game, and game viewing opportunities are abundant. Riders are in control of their own horses which allows guests to interact with the horse. There will be ample opportunities to trot, and in the opinion of the guide, riders may be allowed to canter.

One day trips designed for riders who own their own horses or have significant riding experience. The minimum requirement is that a client should have ridden at least 20 to 30 times, at least half of this should have been in the past two years. Riders should be able to control a horse at a canter.

 
Hiking

Walking/hiking in the Zambezi National Park is a very rewarding way of experiencing the unique fauna and flora of the Victoria Falls. It is possible to get a professional guide to explain the ecology of plants and animals.

Undeniably, the Victoria Falls represent one of the most impressive natural wonders of the world. Visitors can gaze at the mighty Zambezi as it flows, wide and placid, to the edge of a basalt lip seventeen hundred meters wide before taking a headlong plunge into the frothy chasm of the gorge below. This is the world's largest curtain of falling water, yet although its fame has spread far corners of the earth, the site has been preserved so that tourists do not spoil the enchantment of this natural wonder.

There is also a impressive excursion to be made on foot. The Rainforest on the lip of the chasm opposite the Falls is a distinctive envelop of dense tropical vegetation which thrives on the spray of the mighty Falls. A well-kept path allows tourists to walk through the forest, with intermittent diversions to viewing points for the Falls themselves.

Zambezi National Park and the Victoria Falls National Park cover an area of 56,000 hectares which allows for excellent hiking or walking opportunities. A wide variety of larger mammals may be found within the Zambezi National Park including The Big Five: elephant, lion, buffalo, leopard and white rhinoceros. In addition, herds of sable antelope, eland, zebra, giraffe, kudu, waterbuck and impala as well as many of the smaller species of game can be viewed.
