Livingstone Town Tour
The town of Livingstone was moved from Old Drift in 1905 when it was decided that a location on Constitution Hill would be healthier than one on the river.
The town was carefully planned with wide streets, avenues of beautiful trees, buildings with high ceilings and mosquito netted verandahs.
The Livingstone Museum houses the most comprehensive collection of memorabilia of David Livingstone and the Railway Museum has a collection of locomotives.
Maramba market is a bustling colourful market where the local Zambians come to shop. The market sells everything from fruit and vegetables to second hand clothes and bright chitenge (local fabric). Curios are available from another market situated in a small park in the centre of town.
Tour of Victoria Falls
A natural phenomenon and one of the seven natural Wonders of the World, the Victoria Falls is an immense curtain of water cascading over 100m. Around 550 million litres over the lip every minute, at peak flow this increases to 750 million litres.
Around the Falls is rainforest sustained by the spray of the Falls with some plant species rarely found elsewhere in Zambia or Zimbabwe.
During peak flow (January to June) the Zambian side of the Falls is the most spectacular and there are walkways to look out points and across the swaying Knife Edge bridge.

Chobe National Park
Chobe is a unique wonderland full of mystery, endless diversity and game in abundance.
Clients are collected in the morning and transported to the border post, then across the mighty Zambezi heading to where the borders of Zambia, Zimbabwe, Namibia and Botswana meet in the middle of the river. The meeting of four countries is one of only two places on the globe where this is possible.
At Kasane, Botswana, clients commence a river cruise down the Chobe River. This riverfront area is renowned for its large herds of elephant, buffalo, variety of antelope, hippo, crocodile and a myriad of birds.
The afternoon includes a scenic wilderness game drive in Chobe National Park with a return to Livingstone by Sunset.
Elephant Back Safari
An elephant back safari is not just a ride on the largest animal in Africa, it's an unforgettable experience where clients get to interact with the elephants as well as enjoy a ride through wilderness areas and beautiful riverine scenery.
Whilst on the ride, clients may see other wild elephant as well as buffalo, giraffe, zebra, wildebeest and a host of other plains game.
Along the Zambezi River, hippo and crocodile are common and there is a wide variety of bird species.
Each elephant has its own handler and clients will leave having witnessed the elephant's incredible skills, intelligence and willingness to respond to instruction.
The ride is approximately one hour and the overall interaction time with the elephants is about 3 hours. Trips are available in the morning and afternoon.
Horse Back Safari
One of the finest ways to experience the African bush is on horseback. We have a range of trip options available ranging from half day novice rides to full and multi day adventures for experienced riders that range far into splendid Teak forests, Mopani woodland and sub-riverine bush to explore the dramatic scenery above the Batoka Gorge.
There is a chance to see small game such as bushbuck or duiker, hippos and crocodiles along the river and in the dry season there is a better opportunity of spotting elephant and buffalo. There is also a wide variety of birdlife. All rides are led by experienced riders/guides and all riding abilities are catered for.
The River Safari takes guests along the banks of the Zambezi River as well as close to the many islands in the river along the Mosi-Oa-Tunya National Park.
The specifically designed propeller-free safari boats have the unique ability to cross the numerous rapids along the upper Zambezi River comfortably. Because there is no external propeller, these boats can operate in water as shallow as 20 cm. As a result, the operational range is substantially greater than any other powerboat service, extending from as close as 200 m from the Victoria Falls to beyond the upper river lodges.
