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 lies the 2500 hectare Victoria Falls Private Game reserve. This pristine piece of African bush is surrounded on all sides by the 56 000 hectare Zambezi National Park and has the Masuwe river running through its middle.

The reserve is well stocked with a wide variety of game with regular sightings of buffalo, giraffe, waterbuck, zebra, sable and many more. It is a Big Five safari destination; lion, elephant, buffalo, leopard and rhino can all be seen, although this is a rather misleading statement as it is not common for them all to be seen on a trip. 

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 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.

Several wildlife activities are conducted on this Private Game reserve, including, Game drives, Rhino encounters, Night drives and bush dinners, all of which are highly recommended, especially for those intent on seeing a rare Rhino. More details on these activities can be found on our Victoria Falls activities page.

Tucked away in this natural utopia overlooking a busy waterhole, is the charming Stanley and Livingstone Hotel. Completely renovated and modernised in 2018, this Boutique Hotel has not lost any of its Victorian charm, making it a good accommodation choice.

Ursula Camp located close by on the same property is smaller and more exclusive, which is ideal for small groups and families wanting to be on their own.
