Thrill-seekers can now take in one of the world’s greatest waterfalls from on high as part of the African Adventure Experience at Royal Livingstone Victoria Falls Zambia Hotel by Anantara. Guests will embark on a low-altitude flight in a microlight aircraft that is completely open to the elements, allowing for unhindered aerial views of the UNESCO World Heritage–listed cascades just downstream from the hotel. For 15 minutes, the pilot will chart a course over the bends of the Zambezi River, weaving between rainbows and pointing out wildlife along its banks before turning several circuits over Victoria Falls themselves.

On top of seeing the Zambezi from the sky through this bucket-list activity, guests will also go on a breakfast or lunch safari cruise; nature-lovers have the chance to spot hippos, crocodiles, and other native fauna living in the wildlife reserves on the riverbanks. Those seeking out an adrenalin rush should not miss the included half-day white water rafting excursion, when they’ll navigate a challenging stretch of the waterway and tackle a series of rapids with names such as Stairway to Heaven, The Terminator, and Oblivion. Travelers can then unwind with a complimentary hourlong massage at Anantara Spa, followed by a three-course dinner with wine pairing at the hotel’s signature restaurant, The Old Drift.

The African Adventure Experience package starts from US$852 per person. Booking direct with Anantara Hotels guarantees even more perks, including the addition of a private barbecue dinner for stays of more than three nights, and a private Monkey Tree dinner and luxury airport transfers for stays of over five nights.
