About the Challenge

There’s plenty to do in and around Livingstone and Victoria Falls, so extend your stay and enjoy some free time in this beautiful area! From adrenaline-fuelled white-water rafting on the Zambezi to a microflight over the Falls, a National Park game walk with rhino, or a full day’s safari in Chobe National Park, just over the border in Botswana and one of the best places to view wildlife in southern Africa. There’s plenty to choose from, so we’re leaving the choice up to you!

We stay in comfortable lodges in Victoria Falls, on the Zimbabwe side of the Falls, perfectly-situated for the many things to do here. It’s a great way to relax and round off your African experience! All excursions can be arranged by the friendly team here.

This extension does not have an organised itinerary. You are free to spend your time as you wish.

Detailed Information

  • Your safety, and that of the rest of the group, is our highest priority. Our trips are designed and planned with safety in mind. Your crew will be equipped with communication devices (eg phones, radios and/or emergency satellite phones), medical kit and other safety apparatus appropriate to the destination. Our leaders always have access to our 24-hour emergency UK back-up. They are responsible for safety on the trip, and will make any changes to the itinerary they deem necessary, should local conditions dictate. Pre-trip administration - such as medical questionnaires and travel insurance as appropriate - is all done with your safety in mind.

Preparing for the Challenge

  • We plan our trips around the optimal weather conditions, but could still be exposed to bad weather at any time. It is vital you are prepared for all conditions. We provide you with a detailed packing kit-list on registration, as well as details on useful discounts you are entitled to as a Discover Adventure customer. We are always available if you need advice.

  • This is designed to be a challenge, and it is vital that you train sufficiently for it. We will supply you with a thorough training guide once you have registered. We expect all participants to train hard in advance, but we respect everyone’s limits and do not expect everyone to maintain the same pace. Inadequate training is likely to have an impact not just on your chances of completing the challenge, but enjoying it too - and we want you to have the time of your life!

    Our challenges attract people of all levels of experience, fitness and ability as well as all ages and backgrounds. We design our challenges so that everyone can go at their own pace: this is not a race. If you have concerns about your fitness or if you have reduced mobility please do contact us for a confidential chat about whether this challenge is appropriate for you.

    For logistical and safety reasons we sometimes need to re-group, so the front-runners may find themselves waiting for the slower ones. Please relax, and remember that this is a team effort that enables people to achieve their personal goals and earn sponsorship.
