Activities at Victoria Falls Lodge
Enjoy hours in the sunshine, learning about the African bush and wildlife. Walks generally depart at 06h15 and you will return at about 14h30.
Our onsite guide can take you on a walk down to the Hide, which overlooks the waterhole. This is an amazing opportunity to have an up-close experience with game and is brilliant for photos.
Vulture Culture Experience
All guests at the resort, as well as visitors to the Lodge are invited to enjoy this daily educational activity affectionately referred to as the ‘Vulture Culture’ experience.
This program is for guests at the resort, as well as visitors. It focuses on the ecological importance of raptors and scavengers in order to maintain and to build an overall awareness of conservations issues these birds face. By educating about the feeding habits and conservation of vultures, we are not only creating awareness of the conservations issues that faces these birds, but benefiting their living environment within the area.
The experience occurs daily at 1300hrs in front of the Victoria Falls Safari Lodge, and lasts approximately 30 minutes.
The activity is great for photography and bird identification, and to date is thoroughly enjoyed by guests and visitors.
At 1245hrs, our resident guide gathers the guests sitting at the Buffalo Bar to join him to head to down to the feeding area. Carcasses from The Boma dinner the previous night are thrown out to attract circling vultures. This is an amazing experience as there is activity in the sky at 1245hrs and by 1300hrs – it is heaving with over 100 vultures and other birds of prey.
