Adventure activities

Discover the beauty of the Zambezi River atop an African Elephant, enjoy the lion walks or do a bungee jump off the Victoria Falls Bridge. There are a host of adventure activities around Thorntree River Lodge.

Elephant back safaris

Safaris are conducted early morning or late afternoon. The possibility of spotting game is enhanced from your elevated position on this magnificent creature. After your ride you will be encouraged to interact and become one with your elephant.

Walking with lions

By joining the lion walks or volunteering, you are actively assisting in the pre-release training for the cubs, as well as providing essential funding for the program's continued progress to help save Africa's most iconic species. You will have the rare opportunity of being able to walk, interact and observe these amazing animals.

Bungee jumping

111 metres of pure adrenalin! Based on The Victoria Falls Bridge, the bungee jump can certainly be classed as the most scenic in the world. All bungee jumps at Victoria Falls are operated by the Vic Falls Bungee Company. They now also run a gorge swing and a cable slide at the same site. You can even do all three activities as a Bungee combo at a discounted rate.

Lady Livingstone sundown cruise

Lavishly decked out with every thought to a guest's personal comfort, the Lady Livingstone is a one hundred and fifty seater, three-decker river cruiser designed to accommodate groups and individuals. The lower deck accommodates 75, middle deck accommodates 55 and the upper exclusive deck accommodates 20 in private luxury.

White water rafting

Commercial rafting first commenced on the Zambezi River in 1981 and since then this activity has grown in popularity to the point where a rafting trip on the Zambezi is now a regular feature in many tourist itineraries, and is now internationally acclaimed as the best one-day white water rafting trip available in the world.

Helicopter trips

Both short and long flights are available (approximately 15 and 30 minutes). The short flight circuits over The Falls, offering superb views from every angle. The long flight goes over the gorge below The Falls, skimming above the rapids of the Zambezi River.
