Birding in and around Victoria Falls is excellent. Here you have access to rain forest, riverine, savannah and gorge habitats. This relatively small area of the Zambezi National Park and Mosi-oa-Tunya is easily accessible both by boat and on foot. Look out for Rock Pratincole, Schalow’s Turaco, African Finfoot, Half Collared Kingfisher and Thick Billed Weaver.
Try some extreme activities in Africa’s “adventure capital” or simply relax, walk in the rain forests which overlook the falls, take a spa or enjoy afternoon tea – choice is yours!
Like to stay a bit longer? Combine the Hwange Explorer with the Mana Pools Explorer Safari . For ideas on activities during your stay in Victoria Falls, browse our Victoria Falls Network of ideas.
