Chobe National Park is renowned for its large herds of elephant that frequent the Chobe River
A Day Trip to Chobe Chobe National Park is renowned for its large herds of elephant that frequent the Chobe River on a daily basis.

Victoria Falls Activities white-water rafting
Victoria Falls, White Water Rafting. For Fun, Just Add Water Richard Bangs once wrote that wild rivers are the earth’s renegades, defying gravity and dancing to their own tunes. Your first glimpse at the raging rapids that roll and churn down the Zambezi awaken the adventurer inside you, taunting you and seducing you. They beckon with their tremulous arms, teasing with their spurts of white water and daring you with their coiling waves. The Zambezi is a moving, breathing part of the earth. It is the vein through which life flows and thrusts. Every stroke of your paddle takes you […]

Victoria Falls high and low seasons
The Changing Seasons “Zimbabwe’s blessed location, about 18° south of the equator places it in a very comfortable position with the weather gods, who smile on it regularly.” Our seasons may not be as distinguished as in more temperate areas, but when their subtle shift begins, the atmosphere, the landscape, the adventures, and the wildlife shifts too. Towards the end of each season, the breeze carries the scent of promised change, and the leaves on the trees stir in anticipation for the sweetness of Spring or the sting of Winter. Victoria Falls breathes to the rhythm of the sunshine and […]

Zebra drinking from a waterhole Victoria Falls
Stanley Livingstone Game Drive Nestled in the heart of the Victoria Falls Private Game Reserve is Stanley Livingstone, a self- contained bush paradise around which overwhelming natural wonder erupts. The lodge is a pinnacle of luxury, where old world elegance merges with African opulence and fountains, flower beds and bird baths spill across luscious green lawn. Hippos wallow in watering holes and the Big Five roam around the savanna that rolls away from the foot of the lodge in a seemingly endless stream of indigenous trees and track riddled paths. A game drive around Stanley Livingstone is a riveting and […]

Community Conservation
Conservation Education Program For many people living near Victoria Falls, wildlife is not viewed in a positive light. Many only ever see elephants when they raid their plots for vegetables, or carnivores when they are killing livestock. Even if the animals are not in conflict with humans, their sheer size and strength make people fearful of them, especially for those who live with few defences from wildlife – scanty shelter, no cars for transport and poor communication. This means that people in these communities constantly live on the frontline of survival. Human/wildlife conflict is part of everyday life for many […]
