Off the beaten track
Elephant Art Safari
An eco-conscious experience with Elephants, you can convey your experience into a permanent souvenir. A private tutor guides you through the workshop, allowing you to translate what you see onto paper.
The Siduli hide is located close to a waterhole in the Victoria Falls National Park. Completely unobtrusive, the hide looks like a natural mound and therefore the animals are unaware of the presence and come up close to the hide – providing an unobstructed view of the wildlife.
The Boma Dinner Show
An evening of entertainment and a feast – enjoy an evening of traditional dances, face painting, interactive drumming and more. Fill up on a four-course meal cooked by the in-house chefs.
