For those looking for great game viewing and the tranquillity of the African wilderness, little compares to safaris on the Zambezi River. Here are our suggestions for the top five things to do in Livingstone to get the most out of your trip.
- Sip a Gin & Tonic on a Zambezi Sunset Cruise
An experience of Livingstone isn’t truly complete without a sunset cruise on the Zambezi River. Our luxurious catamarans combine Zambian hospitality, light snacks and sumptuous cocktails to be enjoyed in the fading hours of the day. Summer cruises depart at 16h30 and winter cruises depart at 16h00, lasting roughly two hours. For more information, and for a full price list, please visit the Livingstone’s Adventure website here.
- Soar with the Birds while Microlighting
Feel the spray thrown up from the Victoria Falls on an exhilarating microlight flight with Batoka Sky in Livingstone. Choose from a 15 minute introductory flight or a 30 minute ‘Flight of the Angels’ circling the Falls and Zambezi River islands. The flight also offers unique game viewing from above. Enquiries can be made online.
- Circle the Spray on a Helicopter Flight over Victoria Falls
Experience breath-taking views of Victoria Falls, Batoka Gorge, the Zambezi River and game viewing in Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park on a helicopter flight with Batoka Sky. The flight offers unparalleled views of the incredible scenery surrounding Livingstone and Victoria Falls. Choose from 15 minute, 22 minute and 30 minute flights here.
- Spot Game from a Different Angle on a Boat Safaris
Boating safaris are one of the best ways to enjoy game viewing along the Zambezi River. Our specifically designed, propeller-free safari boats are able to operate in water as shallow as 20cm, increasing our operational range to get our guests closer to the Falls and the wildlife that thrive along the Zambezi. Especially in the dry season, the river attracts elephant, buffalo, antelope and predators who depend on the river as a permanent source of water in the area. Options include early morning, lunchtime or sunset cruises. Enquiries can be made here.
- Immerse yourself in the Zambian Bushveld on a Horseback Trail
For equestrian enthusiasts, there is simply no better way to experience the beauty of Victoria Falls and the Zambezi River than on horseback. Our horseback trails within the National Park offer the chance of game viewing, being fully immersed in the Zambian bushveld and glimpsing the spray rising from Victoria Falls. Options include two hour and half day rides, as well as 30 minute pony rides for the little ones. Full details of our horseback trails can be found here.
