The Amazing Africa Experience
Victoria Falls, Livingstone Adventures, Zambezi White Water Rafting & South Luangwa, here are a couple of the 1000 places to see before you die!

The Victoria Falls is where the wide Zambezi River simply drops some 100 meters into a narrow gorge. The Falls lie across the border of Zambia and Zimbabwe. Called “Mosi-oa-Tunya”, (the smoke that thunders) in the local language the Falls are one of the seven wonders of the world and when you first come to Zambia, Livingstone is must visit destination. We use two full days to rest, relax, and take in the sights, sounds and smells of Africa adventure. You can choose to go visit the Devils Pool at the edge of Victoria Falls, walk with the lions, do the Vic Falls tour, abseil, leap off God’s Swing, try out the zip line, or jump off 111 meters from a bridge over the mighty Zambezi ! A sunset cruise on the Zambezi is certainly a must-do.

From here we get into our rafts and practice paddling techniques before we paddle across rapid 1. Here we have the option to carry the rafts up over a few rocks and float around in the “Boiling Pot” directly beneath Victoria Falls, the best start to any raft trip in the world. We run rapid after rapid such as the Midnight Diner, Gulliver’s Travels and the Mother where we can have a wonderful riverside banquet lunch whilst watching other rafts come through, Oblivion!

We spend nights on the river, camping and sampling sundowners, a fantastic barbeque (vegetarian options are available) and a homemade apple crumble for dessert. Fall asleep in your tent or under the stars in your million star hotel. Three days are spent running the best of the Zambezi. As the gorge opens out we see the occasional crocodile and see our last (and best) rapids of the trip, Chamamba and Upper Moemba. On our way out, we pass stunning villages such as Mukuni Village and Songwe.

We move into a whole new dimension now!! When you visit the Chobe National Park, you will never forget the first glimpse of the dazzling, deep blue Chobe River, as it winds its way through sandy terrain, small towns, lush floodplains, dense forests of cathedral mopane trees, and endless broadleaf woodlands. The park is named after this majestic river that protects 10.700 km² of the northern Kalahari desert, providing ensuing wilderness and a game density that is steadily remarkable.

Spending 3 days at the reserve make it a heady combination after running the wild Zambezi.

A question easy to answer, you may wonder, in an age where adventure travel is apparently booming. Varying costs are available and there is no shortage of operators willing to run your trip. This is possibly the most important decision for you to make, after you have chosen to take on an adventure trip.

Value for Money

The prices of our trips provide a high value for money returns. They are priced to keep our standards high and your trip, smooth.
