The guide book I read before coming to Victoria Falls, did not give Mosi Oa Tunya National Park a particularly good review, so we are very pleasantly surprised. It is a fairly small park, with a great concentration of game, although no large cats. We see every single species of game present in the park, and even Gilbert feels that we are...more
The Zambian side of the falls is just as spectacular as the Zimbabwean side, and every bit as wet. My shoes are squelching! The path meanders over a small metal bridge, where the spray creates a torrential downpour and we get soaked to the skin. Deciding to put my hood up underneath my hat is a good idea - until I do it: it is full of water which...more
A famous landmark, the bridge was completed in 1905 as part of Cecil Rhodes' dream of building a railway from Cape to Cairo. The bridge now carries cars, pedestrians and trains side by side - all at the same time if necessary. If you so wish, you may jump off the bridge with an elastic band attached to your ankles. We don't.The bridge is...more
There are no restaurants allowed inside the Livingstone Game Park for obvious reasons!! This is no place for having one!!! Also no food is allowed inside the game park and feeding the animals is strictly prohibited!!! And the inhabitants (animals) would not like the intruders (us) to feast on something they don't eat!!! HAHAHA!!! So please take adequate caution in this respect and follow the rules and guidelines strictly!!!
this is a bar, resort and restaurant on the banks of the zambezi in livingstone Zambia.we spent our new years here and it was great.a nice authentic zambian theme bar, good disco on some nights and interesting people.It is also a boating club, so if you like?
Dress Code: none......
The guide book I read before coming to Victoria Falls, did not give Mosi Oa Tunya National Park a particularly good review, so we are very pleasantly surprised. It is a fairly small park, with a great concentration of game, although no large cats. We see every single species of game present in the park, and even Gilbert feels that we are fantastically lucky.
There are large herds of elephants with some very small babies, lots of giraffes with babies as well as large herds of buffalo again with babies. We see babboons, green vervet monkeys, warthogs, the ever-present impala, wildebeest, bushbuck, waterbuck, hippo, crocodile and finally, the piece de resistance, four white rhino. After we stop for a picnic of Zambezi beer and apple turnovers, we come across the rhinos actually in the middle of the road.
Once inside the park DO NOT get out of the vehicle for your own safety according to the rules and follow all guidelines given by the park rangers!!!
Some of the wild animals can get offensive if provoked or even due to other reasons, so beware of the ferocious ones like the rhinos, elephants and crocodiles (near the river banks)!!!
Also do not feed the animals as they are wild animals and can fend for themselves as this is not a zoo where they are kept on display in open areas!!! If they get easy access to food then they stop looking for the natural food and hope to be fed like pets which is not good for them in the long run!!! They need not be dependent on us for their food but only for their safety which we can now guarantee by not poaching them and shooting them down like the earlier people used to for trophies but just shoot them on film for our photographic trophies and memories!!!
Crocodiles in the river are dangerous and they can emerge suddenly from the waters and pull you away!!!!! You are not permitted to get out of the vehicle you are travelling in the Game Park at any time, so be careful if you go into the river!!! Don't say I didn't warn you!!! HAHAHA!!!more
