1, 2, 3, Bungeeeeeeee

By | News from Safpar | No Comments

For those of you that are our Facebook buddies, you will have seen the post about Peddy and a bungee jump. We said that if we got 100 likes she would do a jump, amazing how quickly you all liked the post – what does that say about your feelings towards our lovely Peddy?!

Good news is that Peddy really has agreed to do the jump, after many many years of plucking up the courage! Bungee have very kindly offered her a free jump just to make it even harder to say no (Thank you so much to the team at Victoria Falls Bungee). Dates are being firmed up but we will be posting photo’s and video’s on FB so watch that space!

Our hero at Victoria Falls Waterfront

By | News from Safpar | No Comments

We’re sending 1 staff member to jump off a bridge and another staff member spends time jumping into swimming pools!

We recently had some clients who were having a quiet drink on our deck at The Victoria Falls Waterfront while their speedy 4 year old wasn’t watching where he was going and ended up accidentally in our swimming pool, not being able to swim. Without hesitation, Kango Mwanza jumped in to save the little boy and all ended well and happily.

Kango has been with us for 3 years working in the restaurant and we have never been prouder of him – definitely this month’s hero at The Victoria Falls Waterfront.

Our fantastic new activity is officially open and ready for business! We have spent much of the last month fine tuning things and taking some agents on the activity as test runs and to gather feedback which we have taken onboard.

So, please do get in touch with Hazel on zaminfo@safpar.com for any enquiries or bookings. Guests will enjoy a delicious lunch on the banks of the Zambezi River in the Mosi-Oa-Tunya National Park while enjoying scenic views across the Zambezi river and lunching alongside a few of our beautiful elephants.

White Water Rafting

By | News from Safpar | No Comments

Water levels are dropping! From Friday 17th July, we started rafting from rapid 7b. Before you know it we will be back on our low water trips starting from rapid 1 (The Boiling Pot), we will advise you as soon as we can what date this will be. Shortly after this we will be able to reopen our AWESOME multi day rafting trips, there really is nothing much that beats the combination of the thrill of rafting followed by camping out under the stars on a white sandy beach in the Batoka Gorge.

The lack of recent rains in the area have been tough for many reasons but every cloud has a silver lining and it means that the rafting has been open all year due to the lower than usual water levels – first time we have been able to do this in 10 years!
