Safari Experience

Your morning will start with a cup of coffee or tea on your chalet veranda watching the sun rise across the gorge.

After either a continental breakfast or a full english breakfast at the main lodge you will head off for your morning activity which could be a tour of the falls or perhaps a village visit and tour of the school.

Lunch can be back at the lodge followed by a quiet spell and then into town for the afternoon activity which could be shopping in the curio market and then a sundowner cruise on the river.

Return to the lodge for a shower or bath and we recommend you soujourn to the bar deck for a drink before dinner where you can listen to the river in the gorge below.
