About
Hike Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park on a guided walking tour that’s an active, environmentally friendly alternative to a traditional safari. Exploring on foot provides a firsthand look at the Zambian landscape, with opportunities to search for native plants, animals, and birds near the edge of the Zambezi River. The park has a remarkable population of white rhinos, but it’s also a great place to see elephants, buffalo, zebras, giraffes, and more.

What to expect

Have done this place twice in July 2018 and May 2019 and i total loved the experience.. But off course the Safari Ride in July was better than May 2019 one. Should do this one. Saw some White Rhino too.

Amazing Experience of a Lifetime
May 2019 • Friends
I was privileged enough to be staying in Livingstone for twelve days and to be able to join a walking tour of Mosi Oa Tunya with the incomparable Chiinga. First I’ll explain that as a person with degenerative disc disease, my back is often in pain and walking can be hard. This walk was around 3 hours and as there was a lady on the tour with a bad knee, we took it easier and were driven from one spot to another, so actual walking time was around 90 minutes and not over the toughest terrain; enough to feel the exercise, not enough to harm. This adaptive approach to the guests on any given day I later realised is a hallmark of Savannah’s work.

The walk itself was beautiful; peaceful, impressive seeing dawn over the park, and scintillating because of Chiinga’s range of knowledge.
Even Evans our bus driver knew so much about the local flora and fauna that he was educating us on the trees while Chiinga found a guard to accompany us. And when we began, I can honestly say that in all my years of foraging and hiking through the countryside in Europe and South America, I’ve never met anyone whose knowledge had such gentle command, depth and scope. I felt confident that I could track and distinguish between many of the Big Five tracks and scat after this one walk, that I knew how to respect the animals and to stay safe being so close to them, and that Chiinga knew how to manoeuvre through this space causing no damage but respecting and honouring this land he’d grown up in. From seeds on the ground to birds in the trees, there was no question we asked that wasn’t carefully and considerately answered.

My highlight was seeing the family of five white rhino we’d tracked for an hour, and also how our accompanying guard stayed with us even when learning of his wife’s illness, until we got back to an outpost and he was relieved. The national park guards as well as Savannah are dedicated to the guests safety and experience and that was impressive to watch. I felt completely safe at all times.

It came as a big shock to learn of Chiinga's demise yesterday in the park and yet I can’t help but think that if he had to go, it would have been there doing what he loved the best and what he dedicated his life to. And the knowledge that he trained his staff and fellow guides to his extremely high and loving standards means that Savannah will stay one of the premier tour guiding and birding companies in Livingstone. The legacy he leaves is testament to his incredibly likeable and engaging nature. I’m only sorry my children won’t be able to meet him on our return trip but I’m confident that those left behind will honour his memory and this amazing work, connecting us back to our roots and a love for nature that is so needed in these times. Thank you, Chiinga and Savannah Southern Safaris.

Rhinos!
We booked this nature walk to see the rhinos, as there are sadly none in most of the other Zambian National Parks. Our guide was very friendly and knowledgable as well as being incredibly eagle-eyed. We saw wildebeest, zebra, impala, warthogs, plenty of birds and (most importantly) the rhinos. We saw six rhinos in total, including a calf that was only 2 months old. Being on foot was definitely more exciting than a game drive and allowed us to feel very up close and personal with the animals. The only downside is that the walking portion was less than 2hrs when we were told it would be 2-3hrs. Even after seeing the rhinos, it would have been nice to continue walking for a bit longer. All-in-all a good afternoon trip and would recommend to any nature lover.

2 days touring, inc Art/Artisan, Livingstone town, Morning Safari & Village Tour
Jul 2019 • Friends
We booked 2 days of tours with this company, and we were completely satisfied. Here are some things that we would have liked to know ahead of time to help future travelers:

We received a pick-up from the airport - very convenient! - and went straight to the Arts/Artisans tour. I expected this would be more traditional crafts, but it was focused on up-and-coming artists. That was great too! We visited a metal and glass artists studio using found materials, as well as a leather workshop (where leather is sewn into bags) and the National Art Gallery (which is in a fascinatingly remote setting). Everything is for sale at both locations.

After, we did the Livingstone Town Tour. Our guide for this day, Chinga (sp?), was extremely knowledgeable. Zambia has a relatively short history as does what you will see on the town tour. If you tell the guide what you are specifically interested in, he can customize his comments for you. We did not visit any businesses on this tour. These 2 tours took about 4 hours.

The next day, we did the walking safari. You should know that additional people may join your tour, and that will not change the price to you. We had asked to join an already-booked safari in order to moderate the price. In the end, additional people were added to our safari, and we still paid quite a bit ($130 for the day each). So this is certainly not cheap. You will ride to pick up the armed guard and then head to the park, where you will park off of a dirt road and go for a walk through the scrub. You can choose a nature walk (which includes comments on the plants, animal signs like tracks and droppings, and birds) and then hopefully find the rhinos. Other groups signed up just to try and see the rhinos, so you could clarify this if that was ideal for you.

After this, we had signed up for the falls tour but given our misunderstanding about what we would see on the artisan tour, we opted to switch to a Village Tour where many of the crafts sold in curios are made. The timing of this day was a bit confusing - I had understood it went from 6:30 to 14:30 but then we were told we would be picked back up at 14:30. However, the guides discussed with us, and we agreed to go straight to the village. There, a local resident took us on a tour. The only thing I liked but didn't was going into the schoolhouse. You could ask to skip this - I felt bad interrupting the childrens' class. Then we stopped at the curio marked to shop. The thing that disappointed me is that we didn't actually see anyone making any of the crafts. I would ask the local guide about that. I trust that the crafts are made there but hard not to question a bit when you see the same curios in all shops, airport, etc.

Our guide on the second day was Chwela, and he was also wonderful, as was our armed guard who knew a lot about the wildlife and area.

Overall, I would not hesitate to recommend this company! Add a boat safari from another company, and you have a perfect trip to the VF area! Also note - for us, it was easier to see the falls on our own - there was no need for a guide for that - but other (older adults) may prefer a guide, to ensure they are comfortable.

Footprints, plants, dung, and rhinos too!
Jun 2019 • Family
Having gone on a week-long safari before this we were grateful to have a chance to step outside of a vehicle, under the protection of a ranger. The walking tour lasted less than two hours, but it was still worth it to walk among the vegetation with our knowledgeable guide to see not only the beloved rhinos and other animals, but also the subtler bits of nature such as footprints, plants (including those with medicinal properties), and dung!

An experience of a lifetime
Jun 2019 • Couples
This early morning adventure was a real step in to nature. We walked through the park as the early morning sun rose in the sky. Within a few minutes of walking we came across Zebras and Wildebeest grazing in the morning sunshine. We continued our walk and saw several other animals in the park with Warthogs, Baboons and Ampala's all moving around us, quite something to see in the natural environment of their habitat. We then saw a white Rhinoceros, a huge beautiful animal and so close, we hadn't realised at first but there was also a 14 day old calf following it's mother. We carefully continued our walk to avoid disturbing these wonderful creatures as we followed them through the park. We then came across a whole group of Rhinos taking shelter from the sun with some resting and others eating. This whole experience will live long in our memory and we cannot recommend highly enough this as part of your visit to Zambia. The guide was so knowledgeable and professional and made sure we stayed safe and we did not disrupt the animals in their natural habitat.

Half-Day Nature walk at Livingstone
Apr 2019 • Couples
We booked this tour when we arrived and asked for a tour that would show us birds of the area. The lass at the River Side hotel was great and most helpful even though there was only two of us. We enjoyed the tour and felt that we could have continued on all day. The guide was informative about the area, animals, vegetation and his knowledge of the birds was exceptional .

Beyond excellent!
We booked last minute (wanted to make best use of our morning before an early afternoon flight out), they were very accomodating with the start and the end time of the tour. The walking safari was amazing, lots of wildlife, and our guide was very very knowledgeable..he was imitating tens of different birds calls and having the birds replying!! :)

Excellent service also post-tour: I forgot a jacket in the car, they tried to bring it back to the airport on time...they couldn't, so they helped shipping it all the way to hk!!

Definitely, choose them for any tour in and around Livingstone!

Victoria Falls Immersion
This company provided a very knowledgeable guide-Zinga? We walked slowly through the Victoria Falls Park and he pointed out flora and fauna as well as taking us all along the edges of the Falls. We got great photos. Warning- even though we were given heavy ponchos we got thoroughly soaked- so wear waterproof clothing and put valuables and cell phones in plastic bags.
