Morning Game Drive/Walking Safari Combo

1 Day


Bongwe Safari Game drive
Elephant Crossing the Zambezi

Includes: Game drive, Walking Safari, Rhino encounter, Bush Breakfast, Tea/Coffee

This fully educational Livingstone safari game drive gives guests the chance to experience the bush on foot as well as in the car. A two hour walking safari provides a much different perspective on the bush and its wildlife. It’s really the smaller things that we miss from the vehicle that add to the experience. The thrill of tracking and learning how to identify the different animals from their signs, as well as interacting with big game on foot makes walking a great way to experience the bush.

Bongwe Game Drive

Whilst elephants, giraffe and buffalo are prevalent in the Mosi-oa-Tunya, your experienced walking guides keep safe distances and understand the animal behavior well, with safety being our primary concern. Accompanied by an armed wildlife police officer, this Livingstone safari game drive combo is truly the best way to experience walking and driving in the bush. The safari includes a bush breakfast on the banks of the Zambezi and a supervised visit to the Rhino.

One of many many you are bound to see

At Bongwe we do not subscribe to the “tick all the boxes” speed-safari like some of our competitors do. The bush and its wildlife are not there to cater to our needs and, sometimes, they just do not want to be found. Fair enough. It is therefore a pointless exercise in trying to find everything in a few short hours. Instead, we like to take our time, spend more hours in the bush and enjoy the sightings we do come across. Invariably, we end up seeing more and spending more time taking in the experience by doing it this way.

A Bongwe Safari is not just a safari, it is an experience to remember.

What should I bring?

We recommend bringing a camera, some binoculars and a good hat to keep the sun off your head. Also some high factor sun cream.

What should I wear

Whilst there isn’t really any strict rules with regards to attire, you should avoid wearing anything too bright. Whilst you don’t have to wear khaki colours, anything neutral in colour will be fine. Shorts and t-shirts are fine as are skirts and dresses. In the winter months we highly recommend a good jumper (jersey/sweatshirt) to keep the early morning/evening chills at bay.

Should i bring any snacks/drinks.

No, you do not need to bring anything. We provide lots of water for the game drive and also provide a bush breakfast, including tea and coffee. It is a simple breakfast like a bacon and/or egg roll cooked on a braai and served overlooking the Zambezi River.

Do I need medical insurance?

Yes. All clients should have sufficient medical insurance to cover themselves in the unlikely event that they need to be emergency evacuated. They should also have cover for general outpatient and inpatient treatments in hospital. Most medical insurance covers this. If you paid for your holiday on credit card, your card provider may provide medical cover by default.

What are we likely to see?

Nothing is guaranteed in the African bush, but what we see most of the year round are elephants, bufallo, giraffe, hippo, crocodile, zebra, warthog, various antelope, fish eagle and a plethora of bird life. We also, of course, have one of the few remaining wild White Rhino herds in the region. A must see!

Is it dangerous?

It would be remiss of us to say it is perfectly safe. However, there is very little risk of injury during a Bongwe Safari. Our vehicles are designed specifically for safari game drives and are safe. Our guides are professional and have been doing it for many years so they know what to approach and when. In over ten years of operation we have had zero incidents and our head guide, Alec, has had no accidents or close shaves in nearly 30 years of guiding throughout Zambia.
