Best Time for Bird Watching
Zambezi NP has good birdlife all year, but birding is best from November to April, when the European and north African migratory birds have arrived. This is a great time to see resident birds in their colorful breeding plumage, as it is also nesting season.
Explore the vast genuine wilderness of the Zambezi National Park in Zimbabwe which has two main
game-viewing sections and thus the Zambezi (National Park) River Game Drive, with an extensive
network of roads along the river accessed through the main gate of the Park, The roads are in reasonable condition, but please note that
they do close the park after heavy rains. . Savannah Adventures leaves 30 minutes before all other
Safari companies in Victoria Falls. Why? We want to offer our guests the opportunity to be there first
before all others get there, and this way have a chance to see more wildlife.
Zambezi National Park together with Victoria Falls National Park cover an area of 56,000 hectares.
Using an open four-wheel-drive vehicle, the game drive allows the guests to discover many
interpretations of the bush and all its inhabitants, related to them by our suitable trained and qualified
guides. When we reach the national park entrance , the guide will handle the formalities and do the
official briefing once inside the park.
After the briefing, we continue with our drive and a wide variety of larger mammals may be found
within the Zambezi National Park including elephants, lions buffalo and leopard. In addition, herds of
different antelopes and different species of game can be viewed. However the park is not a fenced
area as the animals are always on the move meaning to say its all about being at the right place , at the
right time. Its not a Zoo but a game of luck. The Zambezi river is also home to over is 75 species of
fish and is famous for its bream and tiger fish
As we continue with the drive, upstream along the Zambezi River Drive, there are 25 numbered sites
where we will use one of these sites to take a break, have a light snack and stretch our legs after a
long drive. The morning safari sets off at 600hrs or 10:00 hrs and a light breakfast of muffins, fruits, hard boiled
eggs, tea/coffee and mineral waters are served. The afternoon safari departs at 1500hrs and soft
drinks, beer, mineral waters and a snack platter are offered. These sites are attractively situated on the
banks of the river and sheltered beneath the beautiful shady trees like the Natal Mahogany.
Our game drives last between three and four hours in duration. Please kindly note that our rainy
season is from November to April and that the weather patterns can directly influence game viewing
opportunities. Heavy rains could result in bad road conditions and cause the wildlife to disperse.
