The Falls are also the perfect gateway to the wider region and some of Africa's most spectacular locations, from Hwange National Park, Zimbabwe, to Chobe National Park and the Okavango Delta in Botswana, and offers transport connections to Botswana, Namibia and Zambia.

Discover Victoria Falls aims to provide the highest quality of safari experience. With local knowledge of the Victoria Falls and surrounding region the company strives to offer the best travel options available, and can help you develop a dream safari itinerary from the options available in Victoria Falls and the surrounding region.

Discover Safaris believe that tourism can benefit wildlife conservation and local communities, and are committed to minimising environmental impact and supporting local conservation and community projects.

We recently used Discover Safaris/Discover Victoria Falls to book a family safari for my husband ,myself ,my husband's two children and their families too. Ages ranging from 6yrs to 69yrs! We cannot fault the package that Discover Safari suggested and put together. We had 2 nights at The Kingdom while we got over the long flight and investigated what Vic Falls had to offer . We then were taken to Hwange National Park - staying at the Hide - which was the most amazing experience for any extended family. They have a special part of the Lodge called Tom's Little Hide which is specifically for families. Every single aspect of our needs were catered for! Pasta was cooked especially for the children as it is their favourite whilst the adults had a more sophisticated type of food! All meals were absolutely delicious! The accommodation was perfect, one section was two rooms linked - one with two singles and a double. The other was two rooms - one double and one two singles with the living area in between. My husband and I had a separate tent. Each evening a fire pit was lit for us to sit around as a family after supper and the plunge pool was a perfect size for returning to after our game drives. At ALL time we could watch animals coming to the water hole which was right in front of our tents. This was a truly amazing few days thanks to Discover Safaris. We asked for their advise and they did a first class job of advising! Would fully recommend their expertise!

To walk with Charles through the amazing Zambezi National Park upstream from Victoria Falls is a real treat. His evident love and understanding of the bush, his extraordinary knowledge and a wonderful ability to identify and explain, make for an engaging and fascinating ramble. Our time together was meant to span three hours but true to his enthusiastic and generous nature, lasted well over five. Thanks very much Charles ~ we are looking forward to next time!

If you are a lover of nature and wilderness, you couldn't have a better choice of guide to show you round the Victoria Falls and its beautiful Zambezi National Park, than Charles Brightman. His passion and devotion to conserving this place is extraordinary. Don't miss an early morning game-drive and walk in the Park with Charles.
