Walking Safari

To experience the African Bush at is very best, is to take part in a walking safari.

The actual time spend on the walking safari is approximately three hours. However a lot of time will be spent quietly observing and discussing the wildlife with the guide. You will be walking at a leisurely pace. The guide will find the White Rhino for you and track as much large game as possible.

Cold water is supplied on the walk and there will be a stop with more refreshments in a suitable spot. Total time of activity approx. 4 to 4.5 hours the transfer vehicles are open 4×4’s.

An early start is necessary and therefore the pick-up will be early between 6.30 and 07.00 to avoid walking in the heat of the day. It is important to have easy walking shoes, hats and bush friendly attire.

Apart from your qualified guide an armed National Park Scout will accompany you on the walk.

Rhino Walk $80

The Elephant Café

Experience – three exciting experiences in one.

The trip leaves from The David Livingstone Safari Lodge & Spa through the National Parks in Zimbabwe on one side and the Zambian Mosi O Tunya National Park. Several rapids need to be negotiated on the way up (depending on river conditions) and shallow basalt rock channels avoiding hippos and crocodiles. The jet boat ride to The Elephant Café is approximately 30 minutes one way.

A magnificent herd of rescue Elephants will welcome you for an unforgettable interaction with these gentle giants. You will enjoy an informative brief about this herd and their off spring by their long-time care takers.  Once the herd retires to forage in the bush, you are welcomed into The Elephant Café overlooking the Zambezi River for a unique dining experience. Road transfers are also available to the venue and advance reservations are essential.

During your Livingstone Island tour, your guide will take you through its history from ancient times when it served as a sacrificial site to its present-day World Heritage Site status. A delectable 5-star gourmet meal is prepared for you on the island itself to round off this magical experience.
