Livingstone Optionals

1. Canoeing

The canoe trails operate above Victoria Falls and are the perfect activity for those who want to experience the tranquility of the Zambezi River as they paddle downstream with the current in inflatable two-man canoes. The trails begin approximately 25km upstream from the the Victoria Falls, and during the day about 18 km is spent canoeing with a stop at an island.

2. Helicopter Flips

You can book a 15 or 30 minute flip over Victoria Falls. The helicopter seating is designed so that all passengers have a good view on the Falls and the scenery below.

3. Abseiling

A safety instructor briefs guests on the area and proper use of the equipment before starting. The abseil is 53 meters moving down the gorge wall backwards or clients can "rap jump" facing towards

4. Microlight flights

The microlight has an open cockpit for the ultimate adrenaline ride! Microlights have a unique wing-mounted camera which enables clients to capture this exciting experience on film.  There are restrictions that apply on the microlight - a minimum age of six years and maximum mass of 100kg. Flight duration ranges from 15 minutes which offers stunning views of Victoria Falls and the Zambezi River; to a 30 minute flight which goes downstream over the Batoka Gorge or upstream over the Mosi-Oa-Tunya National Park providing an excellent game spotting opportunity.

5. Game Drives

Mosi-Oa-Tunya National Park is a small wildlife sanctuary on the banks of the Zambezi, a few kilometres from The Waterfront. It protects 5 white rhino (probably the only remaining rhino in Zambia) plus various antelope. The riverside vegetation is beautiful and there are stunning views across the Zambezi River. It is also possible to see the Old Drift where the settlers lived before 1904.
