GET YOUR ADRENALINE PUMPING IN LIVINGSTONE

Zambia’s former capital city is now a well-established adventure mecca. This beautiful region offers so many amazing activities that you can get to tick off numerous items from your adventure bucket list. These include:

Bungee Jumping – Feel the ultimate adrenaline rush as you throw yourself into the air and freefall for about 110 meters from the top of Victoria Falls. If this doesn’t get your heart racing, then nothing will.

White Water rafting Victoria Falls – Fast-becoming one of the most popular whitewater rafting destinations in the world, the mighty Zambezi lets you navigate through turbulent rapids large rubber rafts launched from just below the Falls.

Gorge Swing – The Bakota Gorge is about 135m long and 75m above the ground and offers the world’s first commercial high wire. Now strap on a full-body harness and swoop across this wide expanse like a bird in flight.

Swim in the Devil’s Pool – Do you have what it takes to take a dip in nature’s ultimate infinity pool? Set directly on the edge of the famous Victoria Falls, the Devil’s Pool is not for the faint of heart. Take the plunge and poke your head over the edge to get an extraordinary view of the 100m drop.

UP CLOSE AND PERSONAL AT VICTORIA FALLS

Victoria Falls in Zambia

Victoria Falls is one of Earth’s great spectacles and affords so many unforgettable experiences. The sheer power and force of the falls is something that does not disappoint and has even earned it the name Mosi-oa-Tunya, which translates to the ‘smoke that thunders’.

No visit to Livingstone is considered complete without a scheduled stop to bask in the ambiance of this majestic waterfall. There are even tours where you get to climb on the back of an African elephant and see the falls. This is probably why most Zambia safari reviews constantly mention Victoria Falls, even though it is not, strictly speaking, a safari destination.

GETTING TO LIVINGSTONE

Getting to Livingstone is fairly easy, as the Livingstone Airport hosts both domestic and international flights. From there, your tour operator will take over your logistics.

TAKE A WALKING SAFARI IN SOUTH LUANGWA NATIONAL PARK

Hippos in Zambia

The Luangwa River nourishes the surrounding protected woodlands and grasslands of the South Luangwa National Park, supporting various wildlife. South Luangwa is Zambia’s flagship national park and hands down the home of the traditional walking safari, a particularly thrilling way to experience the African bush. This safari adventure boasts an authentic, conservation-conscious feel, with excellent low-impact lodges and exceptional guides.

GO ON GAME DRIVES IN KAFUE NATIONAL PARK

Known for its beauty and scenic variety, Kafue is the second largest national park in the world. Here you can enjoy spectacular wildlife watching, especially near the Kafue River. This watering hole attracts hundreds of bird species as well as herbivores and their predators. Explore the park on game drives, guided bushwalks or even riverboat trips.

WHEN TO VISIT ZAMBIA

You can pretty much visit Zambia at any time of the year. However, there are some activities that are only available at certain months of the year. So before booking your trip, you’ll want to keep an eye out on the current weather conditions to be sure that particular activity or tour is available. For instance, Zambia weather in September is characterized by climbing temperatures as the dry season progresses. Incidentally, this is one of the best times for some game-viewing tours as you’ll get to see more animals concentrating around the limited water sources.

PLANNING YOUR ZAMBIA ADVENTURE

Asante Gosheni and espacially Hassan Nous tenons à recommander Hassan car nous venons de passer un séjour mémorable avec lui. Grâce à son expérience, sa connaissance parfaite du monde animal et des parcs, Hassan nous a permis de voir de nombreux animaux en étant extrêmement bien placé.
Bien évidemment les big five (même le rhinocéros!), la traversée de la rivière par les gnous et bien d'autres animaux.
En faisant un safari avec Hassan vous trouverez tout ce que vous êtes venus chercher.
A l'avenir si nous décidons de refaire un safari, nous voudrions repartir avec Hassan.

Hassan is the best guide !!!! Nous avons eu la chance de faire un safari de 8 jours dans les parcs nationaux du nord de la Tanzanie avec Hassan comme guide. Hassan est un guide très expérimenté.
Grâce à lui et sa grande expérience nous avons découvert et appris énormément de choses sur la Tanzanie, les animaux, les végétaux etc. Hassan est un véritable passionné qui aime transmettre son savoir.
En plus de ses connaissances, Hassan a un véritable œil de lynx et sais débusquer le moindre animal caché.
Grâce à Hassan nous avons eu la chance de voir beaucoup d’animaux et tous ceux du « Big Five ».
Parmi tous les véhicules présents lors des safaris, Hassan sait se frayer un chemin pour nous permettre d’avoir toujours le meilleur point de vue.
Hassan sait où se placer pour nous permettre d’avoir une vue sans égal sur les animaux, en les observant de très près.
Hassan est également un excellent conducteur. La route n’a aucun secret pour lui.
C’est également un guide très attentionné, toujours aux petits soins pour nous et d’une extrême gentillesse.
Nous recommandons Hassan les yeux fermés et si nous devions refaire un safari, nous demanderons d’être guidés par Hassan sans hésitation.
Merci encore à Hassan pour ces merveilleux moments qui resterons gravés dans notre mémoire !!

Great experience! Great experience! Starting from the trip planning the communications were very clear and smooth to organize the tour and select itinerary. In the end we opted for 5 days/4 nights route including the Tarangire, Serengeti and Lake Manyara nations parks as well as a visit to the Ngorongoro crater. The tour itself was excellent and very punctual, here kudos to our guide Wilson who is very experienced and knowledgeable about his job and also went well beyond his duty and gave us a nice summary of country’s history. It was really a pleasure to spend time with him and we managed to see the big 5:) Accommodations were superb: great camps, an amazing farmhouse close to Ngorongoro, meals were also good and picnic lunches well organized.
In summary the experience was highly satisfying, I sincerely recommend Gosheni Safaris and to ask for Wilson as a guide.

Great Taste of Tanzania Had a great 5-day tour. Our guide James was very dedicated to making sure we saw amazing sights. He asked us our favorite animals to see and made it his mission to help us spot them. The food was good, the lodging was very pleasant, and enjoying a glass of wine on lunches was a nice touch. Favorite lodging was definitely the Farmhouse by Ngorongoro. Beautiful landscapes along the entire tour, covered a lot of ground and got a great introduction to Tanzania.

Gosheni number 1 What an unforgettable 6 days, courtesy of Gosheni Safari and our guide/driver Zadock!!!
I booked this holiday back in 2020 but then had to cancel due to Covid. That was after a lot of research of tour companies and finally picking Ghosheni. The time was right to get this once in a lifetime trip set up again, so working via email with William at Gosheni we compiled the agenda…he was so helpful and we settled on one day in Tarangire, one day in Lake Manyara, three days in Serengeti and one day in Ngorongoro Crater…I’m now on the way to Zanzibar after an amazing experience, Gosheni took care of the whole package for my wife, three teenage sons and I.

Our guide and driver was Zadock, a humble, honest, genuine, proud and generous man. He did absolutely everything for us, answered every question and took us to all the places to see the big five up close, hunts and more.

The food was served every lunch time as a picnic, with plates, blanket, wtc whilst others had lunch boxes. The Jeep was cleaned daily, and was extremely comfortable along the difficult rough terrain…a credit to Zadock.

Zadock had so much knowledge not only of the animal kingdom’s hundreds of species but also the history of Tanzania, Africa, politics, and social customs, we felt as though he was part of our family.

Thankyou Zadock and Gosheni, I very rarely write reviews after holidays and I have travelled extensively around the world, but these guys are special and have made this so memorable for my family and I….I recommend to everyone if you are unsure about who, how, what, these guys will sort out the whole trip and at a very reasonable price.

Well done William, Gosheni and Zadock, and I really hope you get to be recognised as the number one tour company in Tanzania!

Extraordinary Safari with Gosheni I am so glad to have Gosheni as our tour operator. They provide excellent service starting from arranging the tour till the end of our safari.
As our city had quarantine arrangement due to COVID-19, we were so worry about our trip. Luckily, Gosheni is so considerate and try their best endeavors to rearrange our scedule. With their assistance, everything is set and we feel comfortable for all of their kind arrangements.

During the safari, we have a terrific tour guide, Edward! He takes care of all the stuff and administration including liaison with hotels, lunch packing, other add-on safaris so that we can fully enjoy the trip.

Not only Edward spots a lot a lot of animals and birds for us, including the top 5 in the trip, he also introduces us the habitat and features of the animals and birds. We are very impressed by his rich knowledge and do enjoy listening the "stories" of the animals.

Edwward is definitely experienced and propose the best programme during the safari, e.g. he tries to maximise our time for the game drive in different locations and tribe visit. We fully trust his expertise and professionalism.

We are very happy with Edward and Gosheni. We will absolutely consider them in our next Africam safari.

Amazing Safari with Gosheni and Ombeni Our guide, Ombeni, was the best part of our trip. He is really knowledgeable, friendly, and we trusted his expertise for the whole 9 days across Tarangire, Serengeti, and Ngorongoro. We were lucky to see some amazing things on our game drives. Having grown up in Kenya, I have been lucky to go on many safaris, and this is one of the best I've been on.
The food was excellent, and even on the all-day game drives we had a cooked, sit-down meal for lunch which was a big plus point. All the accommodation was excellent as well.

We had a bespoke itinerary which we planned in advance with William from Gosheni, and he was extremely helpful in answering our questions and accommodating our requests.

I would highly recommend Gosheni and especially Ombeni for future travels.

Dreams come true!!! Thanks to best guide Hassani I have been dreaming Serengeti Safari tour for a long time and Gosheni Safaris made my dreams come true. We completed our 5 days safari at the end of July and it was wonderful. We visited Central Serengeti, North Serengeti and Ngorongoro.
The company is very professional from beginning to end. Peter the owner of Gosheni Safaris helped us a lot about planning our itinary. I asked too many questions and he replied all of them everytime. Sometimes he can be in the bush and has no internet connection but be sure he always will reply your questions. Just be sure that you are in safe hands and Hakuna Matata☺️

Our guide was Hassani who is a perfect guide, safari driver, friend and everything. He always did his best to show us as much as possible. We always felt safe and witnessed lots of amazing moments by help of Hassani. Beside being a perfect safari guide, he prepared very nice lunch tables every afternoon. He is very funny person and makes lots of jokes during the safari. I higly recommend Gosheni Safaris which is best one and Hassani who is a very good guide. I want to thank Hassani in person for making our safari perfect and looking forward to meet again🙏🏻

Tips: I recommend ‘Morning Hot air Balloon safari’.
