Tis the Season
30 October 2017
Because the town of Victoria Falls is nestled between Victoria Falls National Park and Zambezi National Park, we tend to see some wildlife wondering around, the usual suspects being warthogs and baboons around the town center and the residential areas.
Occasionally, particularly at this time of the year, you may sight elephants silently grazing where you would least expect, especially at night (which is why we say that you should not walk around the quiet areas of town after dark). One of our consultants spotted a lone bull elephant near the Cresta Sprayview Hotel around 10pm a few weeks ago.
If you are staying at places like Victoria Falls Safari Lodge, Lokuthula Lodges, Elephant Hills you will very likely spot animals like bushbuck as well as warthog. After sunset, if you are driving around near the edge of town before the national park, you may also spot kudu. It is important to drive responsibly and carefully in the areas around town, especially where at the fringes where it meets the national park.
