Quad Biking in Vic Falls

Although not suitable for children under the age of 12, quad biking can be a great option for families with older children visiting Victoria Falls. Our quad bike trips vary from bush track riding (while experiencing the local village life) to quad bike eco safaris. Choose between:

60 Minute Eco Trail at Batokaland
An exciting fun-filled ride through the African bush which takes you over humps, through ditches, around bends and down hills. The chance of meeting game along the way adds to the thrill of the trail. Departure times, every 2 hours from 07h00.

150 Minute Village Trail
The Village Trails is an exhilarating ride which takes you from Mukuni to Machenje Village over a dune, through dense bush and on to the Sichilobe Village. We stop for a refreshing drink, turn around and the adventure starts all over again! Departure times on request.

Game viewing on a River Safari

A river safari is a fantastic way to spot game and birdlife during a stay in Victoria Falls. Our propeller-free safari boats can operate in water as shallow as 20cm, increasing our operational range to as close as 200 metres from the Victoria Falls. As a result, we can now offer cruises to amazing parts of the Zambezi that have previously been out of reach.

We offer early morning, lunch time and sunset cruises. Children under 12 enjoy reduced rates which can be found on our website.
