Morning or Afternoon Game Drive

Visiting the 57 000 ha Zambezi National Park, these drives set off either in the early morning or mid-afternoon. Using an open four-wheel drive vehicle, the game drive allows the guests to discover many interpretations of the bush, related to them by our suitable trained and qualified guides.

Bird-watching Safaris

Catering for the keen bird-watcher, our safaris offer tailor-made trips depending on which species are needed to be found.

Either by open safari vehicle, by foot or by boat we search for an array of species through a variety of habitats such as Teak and Mopane woodlands, grassland and riverine forest.

Depending on seasonal conditions, species that can be seen include African Skimmer, Collared Palm-thrush, Rock Pratincole, Raquet-tailed Roller, Western-banded Snake Eagle, Kori Bustard, African Finfoot and others.

Wild Wanderings with Charles Brightman

Charles offers an unprecedented half day adventure into the Zambezi National Park - his very own back yard. Charles will have you enthralled not only with the encyclopaedic knowledge, but also his passion and love for what he does, with a seasoning of humour and gruff gentleness. This safari is ideal for the keener traveller wishing to gain a deeper appreciation for the beauty of the wilderness environment.

A wild wander with Charles demands that you throw out all the clutter of urban life and tune into the African bush. To its unique sounds and smells, the textures, temperatures, and colours. Engaging all five senses and sometimes even tapping into a sixth. A chance to experience the very survival, cycles, and ancient lore of all the flora and fauna of Africa, through all the seasons - much like our ancestors did before the white noise of a modern world.

Departure time: 06h00

Customer Feedback

Brilliant service and so helpful
by Sally (Blisworth, U.K.)
I stumbled across Victoria Fall Guide by accident, but I am so glad I did. Tony and Boo were so helpful, advising us on the best activities for us as I have mobility issues, and arranging our itinerary and booking everything. I had no worries about using them, or sending a very large payment to someone I didn’t know. Everything they booked for us was so well organised, pick ups on time, knowledgeable and friendly guides, clean transport. We did the walking tour of the falls, the sunset dinner cruise, full day at Chobe, the team, lion encounter and the helicopter and every single one was faultless. We were also due to do the lunar rainbow but unfortunately it was cancelled, however boo arranged the refund immediately. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them to anyone. We are so grateful to them for making our special holiday even more so.
