Overview

Our Victoria Falls Extension takes us to the world famous falls, rightly considered one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World. We will also enjoy fantastic birding at our exclusive lodge on the Zambezi river floodplain. We will have ample time to explore this wilderness with drives in our open safari vehicles and sunset cruises on the massive river in search of our targets. Okavango delta specials reach their eastern limit here and targets on this brief yet thoroughly recommended adventure include Slaty Egret, Rufous-bellied Heron, the huge Coppery-tailed Coucal, Hartlaub's Babbler, White-crowned Lapwing, Swamp and Pennant-winged Nightjars, Racket-tailed Roller, African Skimmer, Rock Pratincole, Schalow’s Turaco, Bradfield’s Hornbill and the rare Shelley’s Sunbird. Colonies of Southern Carmine Bee-eaters nesting on the banks of the river are defintely worth a visit, especially in the warm light of the famous African sunset. Our luxurious lodge will be a great base to explore the riches surrounding us and chances of finding some iconic African mammals will keep us on our toes.

2023 Tour price is an estimate and will change. Tour dates could be adjusted.
