Rhino Walking Safari - Zambia

Meet one of Africa's "Big Five" - the rare rhinoceros, on a wilderness walk through the Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park just upstream from the Victoria Falls

Rhino Walk in Mosi oa Tunya National Park near Victoria Falls, Zambia

An encounter of a lifetime

Just upstream from the mighty Victoria Falls facing the Zambezi National Park on the other side of the Zambezi River, lies the Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park (Zambia), home to buffalo, impala, zebra, giraffe, warthog and the endangered white rhino.

On a rhino walk, you get to come close to the amazing and sadly highly endangered white rhino. The trip starts with a drive into the national park, where you will be transferred into a safari vehicle and meet the guides and trackers, who will have come out earlier to look for the rhinos. After a briefing on what to expect, safety and how to have a memorable encounter (tea/coffee with a muffin if you're on a morning walk), you will be driven to the area where the walk begins.

Your professional guide will take you through the park, giving insight to the rhino and other wildlife in the area that you meet during the walk, as well as the flora and spoor found during your safari. From a safe distance, you get to observe the rhino and take pictures.

After three hours from the beginning of the walk, you will be met with a choice of soft drinks and/or water with snacks, and then escorted by your guide to the park gate for your transfer back to your hotel or lodge, or your next activity.

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.
