Description

One of our Savannah guides will meet you outside of your hotel, lodge or airbnb and bring you to the venue of the Vulture Safari and bush walk. We start with a safari around historic landmarks in Victoria Falls, like the train station and the Victoria Falls Hotel. Our licensed safari guide will also point out restaurants, bars, local markets and places of interest you see along the way. From there we continue our safari though the bush where you will learn of the areas flora and fauna as well as the rich and colorful history and culture of Zimbabwe. After nature and wildlife watching between the town and the Zambezi gorge our tour will include an exciting and brief stop of the view of the gorge and the mighty Zambezi river below. If you are fortunate you can witness high wire activities like the gorge swing or zip line and possible whitewater rafting or the jet boat activity thru the rapids of the Zambezi. Back on the Safari Jeep we be continuing thru the bush and are looking for more wildlife, before stopping at the big baobab tree. You will have time to take pictures and shop for some local arts and crafts from a small local market next to the tree. We continue searching for animals and depending on the time of your safari departure we either go to the vulture experience For the past 19 years or so, guests and visitors to the area are welcome to watch the “Vulture Culture” experience. After a short bush walk down a dirt pathway through dry bush, there’s a “hide out” – a viewing deck with concrete benches on which to sit, covered by a canopy of branches for shade. You first get a briefing on the plight of the endangered birds and their ecological importance. Then the vulture guide hauls out a gunny sack with heads, feet and leftovers of beef, chickens, warthogs – whatever the chef doesn’t use in the lodge’s kitchen – to a red dirt patch. Then he tosses out the carcass bits and quickly runs away. The vultures, which for the previous hour have been flying in from miles around and gathering on nearby trees, suddenly swoop in. It’s quite a sight to watch them tearing into the bloody pieces! You can even hear the whoosh whoosh of their big wings flapping (they have wing spans of three feet) as they push and jostle one another to get at the food. The ugly red-headed birds are hooded vultures, while the others are mainly white-backed vultures. The feeding we watched attracted more than 200 vultures (typical). And it was all over quite quickly – within 20 minutes or so… After the feeding is over and the vultures head back into the wild, we will bring you back to the point of origin. *What to bring* your camera
