Adventure Activities in Zambia

A
side from its incredible National Parks and scenery, Zambia is fast becoming one of Africa’s most acclaimed adventure and extreme sports capitals. A range of action activities, mostly located in the Victoria Falls area, are drawing more and more visitors from all over the globe every year. Whether its bungee jumping from the Vic Falls Bridge spanning the deep Batoka Gorge with the Falls as a backdrop, river rafting down the wild Zambezi or having close and personal encounters with lion, cheetah or elephants, you are sure to find something to get the adrenaline pumping and make your trip to Zambia an even more unforgettable experience.

Zambia’s rainy season is from November to April. Most of the activities are available throughout the year except for the following that depend on the water levels and weather on that particular day:

  • Helicopter and Microlight flights over the Victoria Falls – depend on the weather
  • Livingstone Island (Devils Pool) – completely comes to a close between March to May when the water levels are high. However this is entirely dependent on the season period.   
  • White water rafting – This depends on the high water rise which is usually March to May.
  • Bridge Activities ( Bugee, Abseiling, flying fox) – open throughout the year but closes when raining.
  • Under Spray – Only available in dry season  from August to January depending on the water levels
  • Livingstone Museum – Open throughout the year except on Christmas and New year’s days

The rest of the activities are available all year round.
