Victoria Falls has a lot to offer the visitor and is known as Africa's adventure capital. From high adrenalin activities like bungee jumping and white water rafting to more sedate pastimes like fishing or elephant back safaris, Victoria Falls has it all.


Lion walks are available in the mornings and afternoons on a private estate.  The safari includes walking with these majestic animals as part of their pre-release training and funds go directly to the African Lion Rehabilitation & Release into the Wild Program.  Either breakfast or lunch & refreshments are included.



The Ra-Ikane, the only one of its kind in Victoria Falls, is a small luxury cruise boat that is out-fitted to suggest, in exquisite detail, an ambiance of a bygone era. The vessel was built to replicate the “Ma-Robert” – Dr David Livingstone’s boat. This cruise boat is exclusive and personalised and designed to complement your stay with us. Period decor, historic memorabilia, fine cuisine and refreshments characterise a level of comfort and grace unsurpassed on the Zambezi.



To get your heart racing, try out either the 111m Bungi Jump off the world famous Victoria Falls Bridge or take the plunge and test the Gorge Swing and Zip Line.
