The 6 000-acre private reserve known as the “Victoria Falls Private Game Reserve” on which the Stanley and Livingstone is located, borders on the Zambezi National Park, and offers a diverse and yet unique African experience. Activities include game drives, walk with the lions and Elephant Back Safaris on the property and The Victoria Falls and Zambezi River are only a 15- minute drive away.
1 700 metres (5 600 ft.) wide and 108 m (360 ft.) at its deepest point – Rainbow Falls – with a plume of spray that can be seen 30 km away. This vapour adds moisture in the form of humidity to the air in the “splash zone,” so that a unique, small rainforest ecosystem clings to the edge of the Falls, with some 70 shrub and 150 herbaceous species, as well as trees like pod and Natal mahogany, ebony, Cape and strangler fig and Transvaal red milkwood. The Victoria Falls National Park and the Zambezi National Park both extend outwards from the Falls. Key mammal species: bushbuck, banded mongoose, vervet monkey, baboon. Key bird species: trumpeter hornbill, Schalow’s turaco, Taita falcon, Verreauxs’ eagle, peregrine falcon, augur buzzard.
Hwange National Park
Hwange National Park is the largest game reserve in Zimbabwe. Situated on the border with Botswana, its 1.4 million hectares (3.4 million acres) of sandy soils support extensive stands of broad-leafed woodland that during the summer months, despite the low rainfall, are a profusion of green. Along with saltpans, acacia scrub and grasslands, the area can be termed a ‘savannah mosaic’ and in fact its location in a convergence zone between the Kalahari to the west, the moist miombo woodlands to the east and a broad band of mopane that separates the two ensures that a captivating diversity of species is present. The Park has one of the densest concentrations of wildlife in Africa, in particular its herds of elephant and buffalo.
