Top Adventure Activities in Victoria Falls Zimbabwe
One of the Wonders of the World, ‘the smoke that thunders’ is one of the most popular destinations to visit on an African holiday. Although Victoria Falls is an adventure in itself, there are also a lot of exciting activities to be enjoyed in its surrounds. Here are our top adventure activities in Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe:
Embark on an adventure along the Zambezi River and enjoy panoramic views surrounded by the soundtrack of nature. One of the most popular options is to set sail on a sunset cruise accompanied by your drink of choice to experience a uniquely African sunset. Other options include breakfast, early morning and lunch cruises which can be enjoyed by the whole family.
Hop into a Microlight or Ultralight for unique and totally uninhibited views of Victoria Falls and the Zambezi River from above. Choose to have a exhilarating 15-minute tour or a 30-minute flight venturing out to the Mosi-oa-Tunya Zoological Park for some brief aerial game viewing. The best part? With digital wing-mounted cameras, you’re able to relive this incredible adventure again and again.
Head out for some four-wheeled fun with the Livingstone Quad Company on one of two quad trails. Explore the African bush with the 60-minute Eco Trail where you speed down hills, over humps and through ditches with every chance of meeting some game along the way. If you’re looking for a longer adventure, the 150-minute Village Trail may be right up your alley – venture through dense bush and on to Sichilobe village for a thirst-quenching drink before journey back to base.
With options suited to the whole family from pony rides and 2 hour horse trails within the National Park to a half day hack through the African Bushveld followed by a delicious lunch. If hopping into the saddle seems a little daunting, perhaps opt for the half hour carriage ride and be transported to a bygone era while touring the Minor Hotels Resort complex.
Enjoy local wildlife from a different perspective on a unique canoe safari along the Zambezi with Makora Quest. Accompanied by a professional, explore narrow channels, little islands and the sheer vastness of this majestic river while taking in the spectacular scenery. Various options are available to suit every adventurer from the half and full day safari’s to the multi-day safari where the night is spent under the stars.
Whether water-sports, aerial adventures or land-based activities are more your speed, there is an exciting adventure for everyone. For those keen to try more than one activity, and with several variations to choose from, the Livingstone’s Adventure packages may be an ideal option.
