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.

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.

  • Home at Beit Douma, this is how a traditional restored 19th century Lebanese mountain home looks like from the inside. Douma is one of the best-preserved villages in Lebanon, lies at an altitude of over 1000 meters.  The name in Phoenician means “calm and rest”, in Greek it means “house”. 🇱🇧 #Home
  • I believe in giving people time...Time to process the good and the bad because there is something so beautiful about unforced bonds. 
I’m a forever kind of person. I don’t have room for temporary. I believe in big love, of growing old with your friends and soulmates. I believe in being there for people through thick and thin. I believe in not giving up when things get tough. I believe in relationships that can make it through everything... 💫
  • Will probably delete this later but just couldn’t NOT post this video! I’ve always dreamed raising a golden retriever since I was a little girl, and in February, it became a reality. This was Charlie at 3 months and slide over the photo number 2, today at 8 months. 2 more weeks and I’ll be back with him!!! Share your advices on raising a Golden ❤️ I would love to hear your experiences.
  • I read once that some people have the ability to magnetize the people they need to help push them even further into greatness. Some take them for granted, some don't see it because they are too blind. But for those who can see it, be grateful for it, because even if you think you don't need them, one day you might understand the chemistry 💕
  • Bird’s eye view from @joalimaldives 
I can never get bored of this view! 😍
  • In reality, if you really think about it, to miss someone is sort of missing a part of yourself. You miss the way you felt alive on adventures and sharing ideas... Because the right people make you want to throw away the plans you originally had, for a new one without having to say ‘hmm’ and it’s no longer forcing things... it’s been a while since I looked back at some memories in S.E Asia, It taught me so much, but also, it’s a chapter of my life that I feel I’ve closed a long time ago.
  • Passion and inspiration are so very powerful and can easily be intimidating and out of reach sometimes. 
I haven’t been able to pick up my camera yet... Which is odd because, my camera is my source of ‘connection’ to almost everything. 
Sometimes you’re just not ready... And I’m not going to push myself. I’ll try again tomorrow 😊
  • Once upon a time in Kenya 🇰🇪- I’m trying really hard remembering their names, but all that comes to mind is Sophie, I’m sure one of them is called Sophie... Not sure why? Don’t you think? 😊 
Have an incredible weekend everyone 💕
  • Sunrise in Madeira Island. 
It’s been a while since I felt inspired to pick up my camera and go. Maybe it’s the fact that, despite my love for the long summers and flip flops, I’m ready for the unknown, the Scandinavian winters, the daring adventures & new beginnings. 
I’m ready for the sleepless nights under the northern lights and the exceptional early pink sunrises. Someone special told me to learn to be where my feet is... to be present where I am at the moment... Possibly the best advice I’ve heard in a long time, but, this caption refutes it. 😊 I’ll try again tomorrow 💕
  • Not long before the grand re-opening of @gili.lankanfushi in Maldives. The island is close to my heart and we cannot wait to celebrate the opening on the 1st of December 🏖
  • At an altitude of 1800 meters... Ixsir winery in Lebanon is one of the popular winery in the country. Their Winery was named by CNN as one of the greenest building in the world, and lately won the international A+ Award. 🇱🇧
  • Looking back at some photos this morning. This was taken 3 years ago in Seychelles at @fsseychelles - Definitely one of the best views I’ve seen during my travels.
