Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park Game Drive


The Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park encompasses the Victoria Falls and stretches some 12 kms along the riverbanks of the upper Zambezi River. White rhino, buffalo, hippo, crocodile, giraffe, zebra and several antelope species flourish here. Elephant also often visit the park swimming back and forth across the river. Game drives in open safari vehicles with a knowledgeable guide set off in the morning and afternoon from the Day Activity Centre (Livingstone) and last about 3 hours. The early morning drive begins at 07h30 and the afternoon game drive begins at 15h00.

The Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park is an UNESCO World Heritage site that is home to the mighty and spectacular Mosi-oa-Tunya — ‘The Smoke Which Thunders’ — known worldwide as VictoriaFalls on the Zambezi River. The Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park stretches from the Songwe Gorge below the falls in a north-west arc along about 20 km of the Zambian river bank. It forms the south-western boundary of the city of Livingstone and has two main sections: awildlife park at its north-western end, and the land adjacent to the immense and awe inspiring Victoria Falls, which in the rainy season is the world’s largest curtain of falling water. It extends downstream from the falls and to the south-east along the Batoka Gorges.

The Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park boasts five White Rhino, Elephant, Buffalo, Giraffe, Zebra and various Antelope. Although small by African standards (1600Ha), this increases the chance of seeing game. Guests are also shown some historic sites such as the Old Drift where the original white settlers lived before 1904.
