This spectacular safari not only includes a guided tour of the Zimbabwe side of the falls but also opportunity to interact with the elephant herd at an Elephant Sanctuary. You’ll spend your first three days at a small and welcoming riverside lodge where you’ll be treated to a game drive and Zambezi River cruise; followed by a night of luxury in one of the tented suites at the award-winning Elephant Camp.

Day 1: Arrive at Zambezi Safari Lodge

sdfdf5-Day Victoria Falls Safari and Zambezi River adventure starts from Zambia, You’ll be met upon arrival at Victoria Falls Airport, and will be transferred to Imbabala Zambezi Safari Lodge in its peaceful setting on the bank of the Zambezi River. Imbabala is a small and unpretentious lodge with nine thatched chalets, each opening onto a private verandah where a shaded hammock invites you to settle in and enjoy the magnificent river views.

Spend a relaxed afternoon swaying in your hammock, stretched out alongside the swimming pool or indulging in a massage at the recently opened Imbabala Spa. Since Imbabala sits in a private wildlife concession don’t be surprised to see impala grazing on the lodge lawns, monkeys playing in the tree branches or even the occasional elephant wandering through camp!

e4rwe4rweWake up to coffee and home-baked rusks, followed by a morning game drive in this private game concession. Imbabala has highly skilled and enthusiastic guides who are only too happy to share their knowledge of the wildlife that you see: elephant, impala, warthog, giraffe, and (if you’re lucky) lion or even leopard!

You return from your game drive to brunch served out under shady trees, then there’s time to relax and enjoy your surroundings before afternoon tea and a sundowner cruise. Floating along the Zambezi River is not only wonderfully peaceful; it’s also great for game viewing as you drift past hippo, crocodile, and herds of elephant gathered at the water’s edge.

Day 3: Safari Activities at Imbabala

trgrtrthHow you spend today is completely up to you: enjoy another morning game drive or opt instead to go angling for toothy tigerfish – one of the best fighting freshwater fish in the world. Or perhaps you’d prefer a guided walking safari; not only is this a chance to focus in on the plants, birds and smaller creatures but there’s also the thrilling possibility of encountering larger game too!

In the afternoon we’d recommend another Zambezi River cruise, the perfect way to end the day as you toast the sunset whilst chugging along the river, then return to the lodge for an al fresco dinner served under the stars.

Around two-thirds of Victoria Falls lies in Zimbabwe (the rest being in Zambia) with well laid out paths winding through the rainforest and opening up to viewpoints of pretty rainbow-lit mist and white curtains of water. Going with a guide not only gives you insight into the history of Victoria Falls, but your guide will also know all the best spots to take those make-your-friends-jealous photos of you in front of this most spectacular of waterfalls.

After the tour, you’re transferred to The Elephant Camp, an easy 15-minute drive from the falls.
