- An opportunity to explore the African Wilderness on foot
- Learn tracking and amazing facts about small creatures
For our 3-Hour Walking Safari, you will be picked up from your hotel or place of accommodation in Victoria Falls for a memorable trip through Zambezi National Park. After registration and formalities, we take a short drive into the park. Various animals and birds may be spotted as we head towards a suitable walking area. Then, an expert Guide will take the time to orientate participants of the safari walk.
Once the walk begins, safari-goers can enjoy spectacular up-close views of animal greats such as the elephant, giraffe, and the hippopotamus within safety limits, as well as various other wild creatures. Untold stories of some of the smaller creatures will be shared during the tour. This includes spiders, praying mantises and little five game. You’ll also learn interesting facts about the native flora.
After numerous amazing discoveries, we make our way back to the vehicle for a soothing cup of tea or coffee. If you choose the afternoon session, then your favourite ice-cold soft drink will be waiting.
