For the ultimate drive or walk in the Zambezi National Park, try one of these Shearwater Safari Experiences.

The Zambezi National Park is only 15 minutes from the Victoria Falls and is home to many species of animals including elephants, buffalo, leopards, lions, cheetahs, giraffes, gazelle, and many more. The Zambezi river marks its northern border, beyond which lies Zambia.

The morning experience includes a light breakfast and drinks. The afternoon experience includes drinks and snacks, while the evening experience features a 2-course dinner.


This interactive way of viewing animals and nature allows you to interact in a unique way that game drives don't. Explore and follow animals’ tracks, get up close with the animals, and enjoy the natural beauty of our wildlife surroundings.

Walking allows you to experience Africa in a way that few get to see, hear, touch and smell. Your guide will help you meet many of Africa's creatures, big and small.


A safari game drive is an excellent way to see wildlife. You'll have the opportunity to explore more of the park while sitting comfortably in a specially modified game vehicle as they cover vast distances at your own pace.

Your guide will show you the various animals, plants and birds that you might see as well as their tracks. There will be stops in the tour to stretch your legs. Snacks and a drink will be served by the River Zambezi.


Here is your chance to encounter some of the nocturnal animals in the Zambezi National Park.

The game drive's special red spotlights keep the animals calm and you can view them without disturbing them in their natural habitat. You will have a chance to visit Shearwater Café or be returned straight back to your hotel at the end of your tour.
