LIVINGSTONE, Zambia – In Livingstone, the tourist capital of Zambia and home to Victoria falls, Savannah Southern Safaris conducts nature walks and more in the Musi-O-Tunya National Park. What began as the brain child of a local guide, has a become a tour operator with more than a decade of experience in guiding. Savannah Southern Safaris was founded on the principal and spirit of conducting nature walks, city and village tours, as well as community-based projects in a more interactive, flexible, informative, and excitingly educative way. The company aims to be every nature lover's walking safari partner with conservation in focus, providing a more natural and eco-friendly way of viewing game, birds, flora, and fauna.
Musi-O-Tunya National Park hosts one of the Seven Wonders of the World - the Shungunamutitima falls, commonly known as the Victoria Falls. It is also home to three out of the big five animal species which include Zambia’s white rhino population, elephants, and buffaloes. Transfers to and from the park are provided. Also provided are park entry fees, professional guides, armed scout escorts, light snacks, and drinks.
What makes Savannah Southern Safaris’ walks special, apart from its professional experienced knowledgeable and friendly local guides, is the flexibility on time. The tour emphasis is on environmental awareness making the walks more than flora and fauna focused.
The standard duration of tours is three hours. However, depending on what nature offers on any particular tour, guides are always willing to go longer.
