Other Cruises & Safaris

Keep in mind you also get early morning and afternoon cruises on the Zambezi River; those taking place at sunrise provide an enchanting view of life on the river as the day begins as well as the perfect setting for photographs and birdwatching. Apart from cruises, some resorts will also provide thrilling river safaris right from their onsite jetties; such excursions are well worth experiencing too and offer a wonderful opportunity to observe free-roaming animals, diverse bird species and the stunning Victoria Falls.

Additional River Experiences

Keep in mind there are other escapades as well, so look to stay at a resort that provides more river-based experiences and things to do in Victoria Falls. These can include exhilarating journeys to Livingstone Island along the river where you will find the intriguing Devil’s Pool offering breathtaking views beside a 100-metre drop. Families can look to go exploring on a canoeing safari, while adrenaline junkies can go white water rafting or bungee jumping off the Victoria Falls Bridge, 111 metres above the Zambezi River!
