Andy, the great outdoorsman from the Veldt, gets his adrenaline fix in Livingstone

This week’s patter comes live and direct from Livingstone, in Zambia

It’s a great time to be here right now as it’s low humidity all the way through until early September, with nice sunny days and cool nights, plus those pesky mosquitoes aren’t so active. The game viewing is also awesome at this time of year - as the bush is pretty bare, making it easier to spot the wildlife.

I’ve been catching up with some of Acacia’s adrenaline addicts this week at the Victoria Falls. What a top place to get the heart racing. Well, ok there are some more sedate activities on offer like walking with lions or elephant back safaris, but you can’t beat it when it comes to active pursuits. Tomorrow I shall be flinging myself off the Bakota Gorge and then I might have to white water raft down the Zambezi before grabbing some pix of the falls and retiring back at camp with a sundowner.

My top tip this week: go all out on the 58-day Ultimate African Overlander – that way you’ll have four days in Livingstone – plenty of time to make more of the adventurous pursuits on offer.
