If you’re one of those holiday goers that can’t sit still and you need to be up and about doing something, whether it’s something wild that you never thought you’d do, or just simply getting out and about, the options are endless. If you’re an adrenaline junkie, head over to Livingstone, Victoria Falls and get strapped into a bungee jump, try the mighty gorge swing, go white water rafting or take a microlight flight over the falls for a bird’s eye view of this magnificent location. If you’re feeling more chilled, take a helicopter ride over the falls and park or dare to enter the snake park.
Get the heart rate going in Lower Zambezi National Park on a canoe safari on the Zambezi River, with crocs and hippos eyeballing you from the water and elephants showering you from the bank – this is a once in a lifetime experience and an excellent activity for those who love a little excitement; or if you’re not a water baby, why not try a walking safari in North Luangwa and get up close and personal to the wildlife? Wanna get high? Make your way to the Busanga Plains in Kafue National Park and take a ride in Wilderness Safari’s hot air balloon – OR, in Malawi, take a helicopter flight over Liwonde National Park with African Parks and learn all about their conservation efforts that have brought the park back from dereliction to a thriving Big 5 park. Get an unforgettable view of one of the most beautiful parks in Africa, the view of the Shire River, lined with grand Borassus Palms, fish eagles circling and elephants sweeping across the plains.
