What people are saying about Livingstone

This was an excellent trip but there was a few hiccups at the start. We were late being picked up and then there was an issue at the border when passing us onto the transfer at the Botswana side. The guide at chobe also didn’t know we were supposed to be on a cruise after the game drive either. Although he did sort this for us. People make mistakes though and we weren’t going to let it ruin our holiday. The border is around 45/60 mins form vic falls and is open between 06:00-20:00. The trip itself is amazing. The game drive with Brave was excellent and he was very informative. Sitting in the 4x4 surrounded by hundreds of passing elephants is something you will never forget. Brave was also able to spot not one but two different leopards at two different times during the drive. One was up a tree and we were able to get some brilliant photos. We also saw lions charging elephants and all the other animals. The cruise was also good seeing elephants make the river crossing

It was an exceptional day with James and the crew making us feel safe and comfortable. Paddling through the Zambezi with everyone was a great day and would recommend this to everyone! We felt looked after and the videographer would go to great lengths to ensure he got the right shots. The effort everyone put into the day was phenomenal. The guides are all locals (being a local company compared to some other places) and were able to provide a lot of information about the area. If you are thinking about going white water rafting - choose manu adventures! If you are staying on the Zimbabwe side please make sure you have the UniVisa.

it was fabulous, there were only three customers in the boat, so they added an experience guy, plus the leader at the back, total 5. Very professional, notable name is James the boss and leader, Clement the spotter Alan additional rower and T Boy the photographer (Who did a fabulous job with a 10 minute video ) and of course most notably Mike the Cook who kept our energy going! A great bunch of guys. We were lucky enough to even spend some time underneath Victoria Falls!!!! it was truly magical

Excellent day trip from lodge pick up and transfer to the Zambia/Botswana border where our excellent guide for the day (Phil) met us and guided us through immigration. Great morning game drive, followed by an excellent 3 course lunch and then a boat / river trip in the afternoon. Saw all of the big 5 except for the elusive leopard!

Amazing experience huge rapids, was a thrilling experience. The guide was great and prevented us falling out a few times!
