Mozambique Wildlife Safari

Mozambique, with its thousands of kilometers of idyllic coastline embracing the Indian Ocean is one of Africa’s most exciting newer tourist destinations. Its extensive coral reefs containing a dazzling array of tropical fish and marine life are ideal for diving and snorkelling. This itinerary also includes the natural splendour and adventure playground Victoria Falls, game viewing and a dhow safari, not to mention colonial architecture and fantastic seafood.

Mozambique Islands and Wildlife Safari Detailed Itinerary

Day 1: Victoria Falls Camping Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Known locally as Mosi oa Tunya, ‘the smoke that thunders’, the falls themselves are one of the world’s natural wonders although they are neither the highest nor the widest. They do, however, create a visual spectacle as they cut a massive gorge in the earth and crash 111 metres to the river below. This gorge actually forms the border between Zimbabwe and Zambia. There are numerous optional activities on the Zimbabwe side, the most famous being white water rafting on the Lower Zambezi. This excursion takes a full day and has 14 plus rapids, none below grade 4 (rapids are graded from 1 to 6). Please note that at certain times of the year the rafting may be restricted or even closed due to high water levels (March – May). Bungy jumping is also an option for all those who wish to throw themselves 111 metres head first off a bridge! Various flights are on offer including light fixed wing aircraft, helicopter, microlight and ultralight, all offering wonderful views of the falls. As well as these there is horse riding, elephant riding and canoeing, not to mention a walk to the falls themselves. Videos and still photographs are available for purchase of most activities, and are a great reminder of your adrenaline filled visit to the mighty Victoria Falls and Zambezi River.
We would advise that you spend a few days at Victoria Falls before the tour starts which will allow you the time to take full advantage of the activities on offer as this tour leaves early on Day 2.
NB Entrance (approximately 20 USD) to Mosi oa Tunya (Victoria Falls) National Park is not included in your tour price.
