ZAMBIA ADVENTURE ACTIVITIES
For those seeking adventure activity holidays, Zambia is simply brimming with opportunities especially during your Victoria Falls Tour.
Game Drives are operated in open 4×4 vehicles at dawn and late afternoon each day by experienced rangers and trackers who possess a canny “sixth sense” of where to seek out the most interesting wildlife.
Night Drives enable visitors to glimpse the animals of the nocturnal world, such as leopard and cheetah.
Other safari pursuits include Photographic Safaris, Elephant-back and Horse-back Safaris.
Bird Watching: The diversity of bird species in Zambia is amongst the highest in the world, with 743 species recorded to date and several more expected as the more remote areas are explored. Zambia’s National Parks and Bird Sanctuaries will keep avid birders enthralled. Diversity combines with abundance during the wet season from November to March as migrants make Zambia’s pristine bush and wetlands their home again. The Birdwatcher’s paradise is Lochinvar National Park where over 400 species have been recorded however Lower Zambezi National Park, Kafue National Park, Victoria Falls in Livingstone, South Luangwa National Park and North Luangwa National Park are all equally superb.
White-Water Rafting – the swirling rapids of the Zambezi below the Victoria Falls offers some of the most exciting and challenging rafting waters in the world. Regular safaris operate between August to November, starting below the Victoria Falls and winding through spectacular gorges and 23 rapids.
Bungee Jumping off the Victoria Falls bridge offers one of the highest bungee jumps on the planet at 110m. Jumpers leap into space to experience the world’s most spectacular adrenaline rush and a breathtaking view. Quad biking, Abseiling and Gorge Swinging in the scenically stunning Batoka Gorge offer further thrills just round the corner.
Microlighting, Helicopter or Fixed Wing Plane flights over the Victoria Falls and the surrounding wilderness areas provide unsurpassed bird’s eye views.
Boating and Water Sports: Zambia’s wide rivers and lakes – provide excellent opportunities for canoeing, river cruises, kayaking, boating, sailing, and other water sports such as water-skiing, windsurfing, house boating as well as fishing. Canoe Safaris are very popular in Zambia. No boating skills or experience are necessary. Canoes provide both an excellent vantage point and a silent way of viewing the animals. Fishing Safaris are generally available in Zambia throughout the year. The best fishing period, however, is between April and November. The Zambezi River offers the best tiger fishing in Africa. The Lakes for good fishing are Lake Kariba and Lake Bangweulu in northern Zambia.
