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
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.
