Livingstone, Mosi oa Tunya National Park
Rhino Walk in the Mosi oa Tunya National Park
Meet one of Africa’s “Big Five” – the rare rhinoceros on a wilderness walk through the Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park just upstream from the mighty Victoria Falls. Just upstream from the Victoria Falls lies the Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park, home to buffalo, impala, zebra, giraffe, warthog and the endangered white rhino.
On a rhino walk, you get to come close to the amazing and sadly highly endangered white rhino. A 4 x 4 safari through the park takes guests to the position where the trackers located the Rhinos. Here guests receive a briefing by the guides regarding the procedures and safety aspects of the walk.
Guests will have the once in a lifetime opportunity to walk near, to spend some quality time interacting (at a safe distance) with and photographing the rhino. Professional guides give commentary on the rhino as well as wildlife, flora and spore encountered during the walk.
The walking segment is approximately 2 hours in duration. Guests are then transported to the picnic site reserved for the walking safaris where they are provided with Sandwiches and snacks. After the picnic guests are accompanied by guides to the park exit and transferred by vehicle back to their Livingstone Town.
Bottled water and soft drinks are provided from Mosi-Oa-Tunya National Park entrance and throughout the entire activity by a backup vehicle.
