Discover the best of Africa with AVANI Victoria Falls Resort ZambiaLike0

Victoria Falls is one of the natural wonders of the world and should definitely be a part of your travel plans! This dreamy destination, located in the gorgeous Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park and home to the world’s largest waterfall, will give you an adrenaline rush with fun-filled adventure activities on offer which truly makes it the adventure capital of Africa. Zambia may be home to Victoria Falls, but it’s so much more than that. It’s a vast landlocked country of rugged terrain and diverse wildlife, with many parks and safari areas. Travellers looking for vast unexplored wilderness and adventure will love the hidden beauty of this exotic place.

Globetrotters can enjoy an authentic African hospitality at AVANI Victoria Falls Resort. This resort connects the wild side of travellers to Zambia’s wondrous landscapes and big game thrills. With iconic Victoria Falls on its doorstep, a contemporary vibe and essential comforts give roaring adventures a comfy den in dramatic nature. AVANI Victoria Falls Resort stands apart for its natural beauty and vibrant local style. The 46-hectare grounds attract zebras, giraffes, impalas and monkeys. Guests can stroll around the gardens for a wild nature walk or go bird watching. AVANI’s 212 rooms and suites are awash with warm African colours and Zambia’s charms – all setting the scene for a real African experience.

With authentic stay to adrenaline-pumping activities galore, there are countless ways to experience this enthralling natural wonder. From safaris to sleeping under the stars, here are some of the activities to tick off your list when in Zambia:

 

Game Drives

Game viewing is an African experience not to be missed. Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park in Livingstone is home to wildlife such as the white rhino, buffalo, elephant, antelope, as well as a host of bird life. Our open game-viewing vehicles driven by our expert guides are the best way in which to encounter these animals in their natural habitat.

 

Chobe Day Trip

The ultimate safari experience is a day-trip to Chobe National Park in Botswana, which boasts the world’s largest elephant population. The game cruise on the Chobe River brings you close to brilliant bird life, pods of watering hippos, primeval crocodiles and elephants, breath-taking in their sheer number. The afternoon’s land-based safari heads deeper into the Park to spot the elusive big cats that make Chobe their home.

 

Walking Safari

Livingstone Safaris conducts walking safaris in the midst of the African bush in the Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park, just upstream of the world-renowned Victoria Falls in Zambia. Enjoy a 3 hour walk led by a professional guide and park scout, up-close encounters with the endangered white rhino and other wildlife, including buffalo, hippo, impala and warthog. Gain fascinating insights into how the local people, use the habitat in their daily living. Homemade snacks and refreshments are included and catered brunch in the Park is available by special request.

 

Cheetah walks & Interactions

Mukuni Big 5 Safaris Cheetah Conservation Trust is the only one of its kind in Zambia, aimed at breeding Cheetahs for release into managed ecosystems around Zambia. With the only functional Cheetah Run/Lure System, we will give you a detailed and comprehensive insight into the fast lives of these majestic, beautiful cats. Watch as the fastest land mammal speeds past you literally metres away from your feet (first activity of the day only). All along the walk there will be ample opportunities to interact with these amazing cats. What a privilege to walk a Cheetah in the bush.

 

Bush camping

Something of a misnomer and far from roughing it, the bush camps in Zambia’s national parks will fulfil any Out of Africa safari fantasies. Ranging from uber stylish chalets primed for a Vogue photo shoot to more rustic bamboo and thatch affairs, bush camps tend to be remotely situated and intimate, with no more than half a dozen rooms. Sitting down to a candlelight dinner of expertly prepared haute cuisine with the rustling of a curious hippo nearby is an unforgettable experience.

 

Plan an adventurous trip with your family to Zambia this year and experience the best of African hospitality at AVANI Victoria Falls Resort. Resort’s room rates start from $204 (AED 749) and are subject to availability.

  • You loved her because you saw all her magic... she loved you because you reminded her of it when she’s forgotten it... 💫
  • We just had a long 3 day weekend in the UAE and I LOVED it! 
I’m thinking of starting a global petition where we can have 3 day weekend all over the world! 
What do you think? Wouldn’t you LOVE a 3 day weekend!?
  • Truth: I’ve come to terms a long time ago that, if you are not motivating me, praying for me, loving me, inspiring me or trying to build with me... then, you are a distraction. 
For a long time I’ve felt the pressure of social media and I’ve learnt to deal with it. 
We live in a society that is continuously looking for happiness, dreams and goals out there for the next best thing to feel ‘happiness’ and ‘social acceptance’ but, we seem to forget that we are ALIVE, and that is all we need right now. 
If you agree leave a ♥️. Thank you for being with me throughout all these years.
  • Right this second, where I am... and where I want to be and it’s f*** incredible ♥️

  • Who wants to join??! Not long now for our upcoming group trips on @travelwithtjd as we kick off the season! #travelwithTJD
We’ve got 6 separate FULL groups on our Adventure Travel Movement going to different locations in Norway and Finland in 2018 and I’m so thankful and excited! 
Our first one sets sail in October in Tromso for 4 nights in search for the Northern Lights while we sail the arctic sea! We dock in an uninhabited Island to hike and explore too! 
Make sure you follow @travelwithtjd to join our Travel Adventure Travel Movement. 
Thank you @dennisstever for this lovely picture ♥️
  • Are you a beach person or a mysterious desert lover?? I have to admit I love the beach but the desert has its own magic too! 😊
Back in the desert 🌵 and it’s hot but I can’t wait for the weather to start cooling off here! Which one do you love more?
  • What’s your favorite animal? Mine is the elephant. 
Those who know me well, know how I constantly talk about the dark side to elephant tourism that many people just don’t seem to be aware of… but you need to know this! 
Elephants are endangered species and should be in the wild, and the ONLY way to ride an elephant is by taming it with a process which is called Phajaan, or “the crush”.
It involves ripping baby elephants away from their mothers and confining them in a very small space, like a cage or hole in the ground where they’re unable to move with them tied down. Check it out on YouTube. 
So please don’t ride elephants, at any cost, ride bicycles instead. 
This photo was taken in an elephant sanctuary in North of Thailand in 2016
May the power of a thousand elephants give you the strength to face the troubles ahead. ♥️
  • I’m curious to know... Where is the best sunset you’ve ever seen? ♥️
  • People always say: “Make sure you get a job doing what you love!’’ But that isn’t the best advice. 
The right job is the job you love some days, can tolerate most days, and still pays the bills. Almost nobody has a job they love every single day and that is ok because that’s what it means to be human ♥️ #infinitilebanon #Q30
  • Believe me, with the crazy errands I’m running around for today, I wouldn’t mind dropping it all and being back here where my only concern would be tan lines 😊 Who is with me? 😊
Happy Friday!! ❤️
  • Leaving Lebanon is never easy. Thank you for those with insane magic in them, those who danced through the nights till the mornings with me, those who took road trips with me, those who loved me, those who ate ice cream with me every day, those who made efforts to see me, those who competed with me for the best tan lines and for those friends who always were undeniably themselves with me. You know who you are ♥️🇱🇧
  • When you follow a feeling to the very end, all your dreams will come true! Inside peek at Giraffe Manor in Kenya 🇰🇪
