What to do at Waterberry
There’s so much to do at Waterberry, whether you want to see the amazing Victoria Falls (everyone does!) or just stay put and enjoy our inclusive activities, or plan a programme including special trips with our local activity partners.
When you arrive your host will explain what’s available, and help you plan your stay to make sure you miss nothing but also have enough down time just to enjoy watching the river roll by.
Visit Victoria Falls
Flowing over 1.6km of sheer cliff between Zambia and Zimbabwe, the huge body of water changes with every season. High water in the early part of the year floods with absolutely astonishing force, shaking buildings kilometres away, releasing massive spray and vast double rainbows. In the dry season from late October the huge 100m deep canyon is exposed with boiling rapids and views to the fast running cataract on the west side.
It’s the Falls that make Livingstone and Victoria Falls the adventure capital of the world because, apart from just walking around them, gazing in awe (and sometimes getting very wet), you can fly over in a helicopter, microlight or plane, raft the world’s most challenging rapids, swim in the Devils Pool (and imagine what Livingstone must have thought the first time he saw this place), or scramble under the Falls and swim in the rock pools below at low water.
Then you can cross the century-plus old railway bridge, hear the history of its construction and walk the engineers’ route under the bridge, watch the white-water rafters hundreds of feet below you, or join the bungee jumpers and gorge sliders as they hurtle down from the bridge.
All followed by a nice calming drink at one of the Falls or riverside venues – or by a swift helicopter flight back to the lodge. Sometimes at full moon you can even see the lunar rainbow.
You can choose which of these activities you would like to include in your stay. Your host will discuss your programme when you arrive, to make sure you get to do exactly what you want!
Culture, Nature, Adrenaline
There are so many other exciting things to do around Livingstone, organised by our activity partners. When you arrive you’ll get the chance to find out more so they can be booked for you if you wish, and you'll be charged at the end of your stay.
More about Victoria Falls
Victoria Falls is officially one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World and it does not disappoint. It’s different every month depending on rainfall in Northern Zambia and Angola – with the water taking weeks to reach the Falls until its peak between March and May. Lowest water is roughly mid-October to mid-December
With the always-magnificent Falls each water level offers a different experience with stunning views from both Zambia and Zimbabwe. The up-close-and-personal Zambian side, with the Falls so near across the narrow gorge, the dramatic knife-edge bridge and the unique Livingstone Island experience are a perfect counterpoint to the beautiful long view from Zimbabwe with its dramatic Western cataract.
We’ll take you to see both sides so you don't miss a thing.
