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.

  • 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 💕:

  • 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!

  • Sunrise view from my room facing the Athenian Riviera from @fsathens from Arion side of the building which is more laidback.
I have to admit though, it’s good to be back home and back to a routine. I tend to pick up emotions from the people and environment around me, and from time to time, it’s good to be grounded. Thank you Four Seasons for a wonderful experience and congratulations on the opening! ❤️
  • It was 18 degrees at the most one morning, and the sun was shining. Jumped on a @fsathens boat and sailed to visit the Poseidon Temple and an afternoon lunch at hidden gem by the sea with the sweetest people. I love being on boats and grew very fond on them since I was very little. ❤️
  • I was lucky enough to have had 3 sunny days in Athens before the weather turned into beautiful rain. It was a great weekend celebrating @fsathens opening. This is one of the pools at sunset from Nafsika side with private cabanas on the sides. That’s my weekend, how was yours? ☀️
  • I landed in Athens couple of days ago to celebrate the opening of @fsathens - Four Seasons Hotel Astir Palace Hotel Athens is a luxury escape resting on a peninsula along the Athens Riviera, just 30-minutes from the historic city centre. 
I ALWAYS love coming back to Greece 🇬🇷
  • I’m caption-less this morning. Might be because my mind is either overloaded or too relaxed, does this happen to you? 😊 - but here is @joalimaldives from where I drone. Happy Thursday everyone!
  • Back in Dubai for 24 hours and summer has already begun here and there is no way I can manage to have Charlie look at the camera!! My summer plans are getting together and with a little inspiration from @theitalianwayuae we are adding Italy’s coast on our itinerary as well! #TheItalianWay
What are your summer plans?
  • Located on Muravandhoo island on the Raa Atoll in the northern Maldives, @joalimaldives celebrates the ‘Joie De Vivre’ ... the joy of living, the joy of everything ❤️
  • You’ve got to find that soul friend... You’ve got to find that person. I’ve always truly believed that. 
Those which answers to these questions—does our friendship feel easy? Am I better for knowing this person? Do they help me become closer to the person I ultimately want to be? Can we be quiet together for a long time?That's the person I want to be be forever friends with. That's my soul person. Do you have yours? 💫
  • I’ve traded my snow gear to flip flops! I’m always happy to be back at @joalimaldives and since the pre-opening, it has flourished so much and the island has come alive! I’m always impressed with the incredible work they do here in attempts to save the marine life, the co-operation they do for the local islands and the incredible staff that has become good friends of mine now! ❤️
How gorgeous is this overwater villa?
