The Experience

 

Zambezi Expeditions offer an unparalleled Zambezi River safari adventure. Passing through island channels rarely accessed by commercial river operators, you may encounter hippo, crocodile, elephant, giraffe, various antelope, warthog, zebra, buffalo and over 400 species of birds.

The Zambezi River, and the surrounding national park is known for its incredible bird and wildlife sighting opportunities. Set on the upper river above the mighty Victoria Falls, a Zambezi River safari is the best way to see this unique sanctuary from a different perspective. Indeed, our river safaris are the perfect compliment to a game drive in the park providing you with differing perspectives of the natural habitat and the resident animals who live there and call it home.

Our Zambezi River Expeditions are ideal for families, friends and small VIP groups. Sit back and experience the spectacular!

Each Zambezi River safari departs/returns from the jetty at The David Livingstone Safari Lodge & Spa.
