Half-Day & Full-Day Safaris

Victoria Falls

 

Victoria Falls town is uniquely situated, surrounded by 56 000 hectares of wild National Park. This means that within 15 minutes drive from your accommodation, you can be on safari in pristine bushveldt.

Julian Brookstein Safaris make the most of this with our day safari exploration packages. We offer a variety of options to best fit your program and time available, all with professional Zimbabwean guides. 

These are genuine safari experiences, in the untamed open wilderness, led by the best guides in Africa.

Zambezi National Park is part of a continuous unfenced wild area including the game-rich Hwange National Park, Zimbabwe’s largest totaling some 13,000 square kilometers, together with Matetsi Safari Area, Kazuma National Park, Zambezi National Park, and Pandamasui Forest area, which all combine to form one of Africa’s largest un-spoilt, wilderness areas that are over 20,000 square km in extent.

The main Zambezi National Park area offers dry open and closed woodland types on Kalahari sand and basalt rock; riverine vegetation along seasonal and permanent rivers; grassland vleis and rocky outcrops on basalt. Home to lion, elephant, buffalo, leopard, sable, eland, zebra, giraffe, kudu, waterbuck, impala, hippos and crocodiles (to name a few) as well as over 400 species of birds, you never know what is around the next bend of the dirt road. 

Separated from the main park by a road, Chamabondo is typical of one of these extremely beautiful ecosystems – that of a long grassed watercourse, with teak covered hillsides, where the wildlife includes lion, buffalo, zebra, giraffe, sable, elephant, baboons and hyena, amongst many others.

We focus our trips in one of two areas – in the Zambezi National Park riverside and interior and in the Chamabondo grasslands area. Whilst both part of the greater Zambezi National Park, each offers a unique plant life that in turns dictates the type of game likely to be found

Your area of discovery will be chosen by your guide on the day, based on their extensive knowledge of the wildlife currently in each area, to ensure the best safari encounter

possible for you.

Please let us know if walking is your main aim during your safari excursion, as certain areas are more suited to this.

Our times are stated as minimum times as, unless requested, we don’t believe in cutting short

an incredible sighting to stick to a set time limit. 

You are guaranteed a window seat in our specially converted

Land Rover 4x4, custom set up to make sure you get the best photographic shots whilst experiencing the best guiding

Africa has to offer.

The vehicle has six three-tiered seats in the back and one seat in the front, making a total of seven, with storage compartments between seats, armrests, cup and book holders and photographic beanbag rests available on request.

Ponchos and blankets are provided for rainy or cold weather, but at these times we recommend you also bring layers to keep warm. Please wear neutral toned colours to fit into your surroundings unobtrusively, especially no white clothing, along with comfortable sturdy walking shoes. Please don't forget a hat, sunglasses, plenty of sunscreen and of course your camera!

Another great option to enhance your game viewing is to bring your own binoculars.

Various snacks and meals are included depending on the option you choose, all freshly home cooked by the team, using local, seasonal ingredients with no two days the same. 

Breakfast could be fresh quiches baked just for you or pancakes and bacon fired up on the portable bbq.

Lunches include healthy salads, cold meat selections, and fresh rolls, inspired by the day’s fresh produce, whilst dinners feature loaded gourmet steak rolls, cooked on the spot by your guide.

Snacks feature cheeseboards and even hot soup in cold weather.

Please let us know of any dietary requirements in advance so that whatever tasty creations are planned are made to suit your needs. 

For your safety, your professional guide will conduct a full safety briefing on entering the park and will be armed at all times. All guides have advanced first aid training and carry all necessary equipment. All activities are covered by liability insurance provided by SATIB.
