My name is Taf Mashiri and together with our guides we are part of Savannah Adventures and licensed and experienced safari guides. I am a fun person that loves meeting guests from all over the world and show around my hometown, Victoria Falls. I have been guiding for almost four years and I enjoy bringing our warm African culture and traditions closer to our visitors, so they can spread a bit of the magic of Zimbabwe to the rest of the world. New in our Savannah Adventures Team is Carlos that does walking tours, Matthias Dohling he is responsible for design and online marketing and for Reservations and Marketing as well.

Tour description

Note: This tour has a cost of $ 55 Usd  per person
 It includes park fee,fuel ,operating fees, pick up, drop off, beer and water.
Payable in cash at pick up at your  Victoria Falls hotel or lodge.

 After picking you up from your hotel, lodge or airbnb 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 for a beer at the rock pool on the banks of the zambezi river just above the Victoria Falls , the spray is visible from there. Then we continue to the big baobab tree and learn about its history.. 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 continue 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. 

In front of the lodge’s Bar, down a dirt pathway through dry bush, there’s a “hide” – 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.

Dieses unfassbare Naturschauspiel bei dem einem einfach der Atem stockt . Egal zu welcher Jahreszeit, es ist einfach super schön und immer unterschiedlich, und am Besten mit einem Führer. Dieses Jahr haben wir uns zum erstenmal entschlossen eine geführte Tour mit Prince zu buchen, und haben es nicht bereut. Wir haben so interessante Dinge erfahren, die wie vorher nicht wussten. Auch hat Prince durch seine lokalen Kontakte und andere Walking Tours uns diesen Trip nach Victoria Falls einen genialen anderen Charakter gegeben, danke Prince!
