Victoria Falls Private Game Reserve

This 2500 hectare private game reserve is situated only 12kms from Victoria Falls town centre in Zimbabwe

Twelve kilometres away from the spectacular Victoria Falls, 2500 hectares of pristine private wilderness spreads across the landscape. The Victoria Falls Private Game Reserve is nestled within the boundaries of the Zambezi National Park and here, Mother Nature is queen. Her hand has lovingly lingered over the area and through Big 5 safaris, Rhino searches, night drives and bush dinners, Wild Horizons enables you to experience, appreciate and celebrate an unscathed Africa, either on short half day trips or by staying at one of the Luxury lodges. For these and more activities click here.

The Victoria Falls Private Game Reserve is a Big Five safari destination; lion, elephant, buffalo, leopard and rhino can all be seen. The savanna is full of wildlife and apart from the big 5, giraffe, waterbuck, zebra and sable all regularly roam across game-vehicle paths. The Masuwe River winds its way through the unspoilt bush veld, drawing over 400 species of birds to its banks. Teak forests and open grasslands dominate this landscape upon the Kalahari sand.

The beauty of the bush emphasises the importance of its protection, and on the reserve Wild Horizons facilitates various conservation projects. The Victoria Falls Private Game Reserve is recognised as an Intensive Protection Zone (IPZ) for Black Rhino and since implementing a Black Rhino monitoring and breeding programme the population has flourished to the point that they have been able to supply Black Rhino to other intensive protection Zones for restocking.

Tucked away in this natural utopia is the understated luxury of the Stanley and Livingstone. Engulfed in an old-world atmosphere, the lodge offers guests an enriched safari experience. Ursula Camp is an additional over-night option offering an intimate wilderness experience under a Zambezi teak forest. Ideal for small groups looking for exclusivity.
