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.

  • Feeling a little pink today because I took a day off work and doing some packing for an exciting trip ahead! 
I pack a week before my trip 🙄... is anyone the same?
  • This month, I asked the universe to help me in the practice of ‘letting go gracefully’ and I turned towards my Ashtanga practice. It has been more consistent than I can ever remember and I thank my teacher for navigating me. 
My mat has always been my private mirror ...Showing me my strength and weaknesses and my ability to push through when I’m stuck. It has me flirting with patience and, hope that one day, I might acquire it. It has been helping me shift my perspective and release the ‘need to control everything’ side of me... but still keep the organized side of me. 
Letting go is part of my healing process, whether it’s a posture that I need to fall into or catching my breath... because healing, is my responsibility... and no one else’s. 
These series of photos reminds of me a moment of achievement. The moment I’ve always wanted to sail in the Arctic dream a year ago, turned into a reality.
  • I love how so many of you played the exercise on my instastory. Wether it’s real or not, it’s nice to get to know a little more about you. 
I found love, success, happiness. Then found power, money, experience 🤣 
Did you also manage to find more words?
  • The bravest thing I’ve ever done was be a mother and learning to deal with fears I never knew existed... most of all, when I see her, I see the evidence of how strong I can be, and I remind myself: You’ve got this. 💫
  • The midnight sun is slowly making its way into the arctic. One of the world’s greatest phenomenon. Where the sun never completely sets and is visible day and night. Have you ever seen it?
I struggle to find the words to describe this feeling, because no words are strong enough. This was taken a little past midnight while sailing in the arctic on our @travelwithtjd - We are launching more TJD trips like those for you to join and experience it together. Follow @travelwithtjd to find out more on how you can join ❤️
  • I get asked constantly for advice on the best resorts in the Maldives that is children friendly. For me, it’s not only about the facilities but also the trust that’s built with the staff and the program they have for kids each day. Chloe loved it here, made new friends and cried when we left. That’s why I find it easy to always return to Joali. 
What’s your favorite island in Maldives?
  • Italy: A series of few images I took years back when I visited Florence. I remember the highlights of my trip: The gorgeous @fsflorence - Cinque Terre - A moment where I felt I lost all my inspiration - The magical sunset at Piazzale Michelangelo. 
What are your favorite things to do in Florence?
  • Throwback to almost 3 years ago. A friend asked for my recommendation for Bali and it brought up some memories. So found this picture. It’s one of my favorite places in Uluwatu and one of my favorite summer! Happy Sunday 🐰
  • The island’s Manta Tree house, designed by one and only Porky Hefer. It’s 5 meters in the air and a wingspan of almost 15m. The 50m tail of the manta is a suspended walkway leading up to body which seats up to 10 people! One of the many art pieces in @joalimaldives - I’ve never seen anything quite like it!!!
  • I’ve been trying to (really focusing more this time) to wake up and sleep with affirmations. It used to help me a lot in the past then somewhere along the way, I stopped for a while.
I’d love to read what’s yours!! Everyday, I try to read and write new ones so here goes mine for today and I hope it resonates with you 💕:
“If I want it, I can attract it” Abraham Hicks
  • I am always surrounded by love (and water) because all I see is love 💕 
Happy Easter everyone!
  • A huge shift in my energy today as I start working on our next @travelwithtjd - Scandic countries holds an exhilarating amount of joy and peace in my heart, which I’ve learned not to search anymore for reasons to explain it, because some things cannot always be expressed in words. 
We have recently launched Sweden’s Arctic experience on @travelwithtjd other than Finland, Iceland and Norway. The link is in bio if you like to join our polar journeys and have an adventure of a lifetime. Only 2 spaces left for Sweden. Hope to see you on our TJD trips!
