    What to Expect
    Game viewing at night by spotlight offers a whole new experience in Victoria Falls that most tourists don’t get to see. Your journey begins with being picked up from your hotel around 4pm. You’ll be taken to a private reserve located approximately 7mi (12km) from the center of town, where you will enjoy an late afternoon game drive until sunset.

    Meander in an open, well-kitted 4X4 vehicle through a changing landscape of scenic basalt plains, to the Kalahari sands, and teak forests of the Nakavango Private Game Reserve. Your experienced and knowledgeable guide will share fascinating facts about the African bush, along with their experiences of living here.

    At sunset, you will stopover at a splendid vantage point to enjoy some drinks and snacks, stretch your legs and chat about the afternoon’s adventures with fellow travelers. At dusk, the spotlight comes out to give you the opportunity of seeing what happens at night in the African bush. Guides are trained to use the spotlight in a responsible manner, with the goal of minimizing disturbance to game during the safari.

    The guided safari will take you through the natural African bush where you might spot species such as lions, rhinos, elephants, buffalos, leopards, jackals, hyenas, civets, servals, genets, night apes, honey badgers and more. This is the time to observe active predators and their constantly alert prey. If you are very lucky you might spot a lion on the prowl under the cover of darkness. This adventure will heighten your senses, and have your pulse racing. You will feel as if you have truly left the familiar behind.

    After approximately 1.5 hours, depending on the time of year, your guide will bring you back to a traditional open-air enclosure for a lovely dinner under the stars. The 3-course BBQ meal is complemented by wine, cold beer and light refreshments. Relish the atmosphere as you listen to wildlife calls and see the animals come to drink at the waterhole nearby.

    It’s one of the finest experiences, sitting outside under the star-studded African night sky, relaxing around an open fire, a delicious meal, a couple of drinks and good company. Stay as long as you like enjoying the campfire, drinks and conversation. Your driver will drop you back to your hotel once the group is ready around 10pm.

    Overall the game drive was amazing. The driver was really knowledgable about where the game would be. The food at dinner was great, only slightly let down by the organisation around a very large group - which meant that smaller groups (like ours) were really left out in the

    This is an excellent way to spend an afternoon/evening in Vic Falls. The highlight for us was seeing not one, but seven Black Rhinos (not guaranteed, of course) and a variety of other wildlife including giraffe and zebra. After a great supper, the spotting light came out and we

    Starting late afternoon we saw some antilopes, giraffes and birds, which was okay as I didn`t expect much more. Everybody knows that the park is not exactly packed with animals. But when it started to get dark we came pretty close to some black rhinos, which was really awesome
