Zambia Sussi & Chuma 2

Mosi-Oa-Tunya National Park is one of Zambia's smallest parks, yet it provides a home to elephant, hippo, giraffe, buffalo, warthog, zebra, impala, vervet monkeys and baboon.

The small park has a relaxed atmosphere due to the lack of predators, which makes ideal conditions for photo opportunities.



Buffaloes and giraffes were seen every day during the month in the Mosi-Oa-Tunya National Park. Two lions are in the park and can be heard roaring almost every day. Elephants were seen a few times during December. 

The Zambezi River water level drops to its lowest around November/early December - approximately 10 million litres per minute and this is when the spray is at its least. Some sections of the Falls actually dry up.

June 2014 Sussi Giraffe


Buffaloes and giraffes were sighted every day during June. Elephants were seen frequently - but not every day. An interesting sighting was giraffe picking and chewing on bones. This is an act called osteophagia - eating or chewing of bones by herbivorous animals craving phosphorus - needed to sustain the growth and maintenance of their skeletons.

The Victoria Falls' water levels are dropping quickly and Devil's Pool was still closed due to high water levels; Livingstone Island is now open. White water rafting was available.

Buffalo Southern Africa


Good news this month is that elephant sightings increased and the gentle giants were spotted 24 times in the month. Buffalo and giraffe were not shy and were seen every day during April. 

The Victoria Falls' water levels had increased drastically and Devil's Pool and Livingstone Island were closed. White water rafting was not available due to the high water levels.

Sussichuma Elephants

Sightings - MARCH 2014

Buffalo and giraffe were seen every day of March. Elephants were quite scarce this month and were only seen on a few occasions - just seven times during the month. Elephants live an average of 80 years and can reach a height of 90cm.

The Victoria Falls' water levels are quite low and Devil's Pool was closed. Livingstone Island was still open and guests were still able to enjoy white water rafting.

Sussi Chuma Openbilled Stork Zambezi


Game viewing was excellent this month. Buffalo and giraffes were seen every day in the short month of February! What a treat this was for Sussi and Chuma's guests. Herds of elephants were also spotted every day of February. Elephants communicate within their herds or between herds far away mostly by using sounds that are too low for humans to hear and also by stamping their feet.  

Bird sightings were excellent with a number of migrant species of birds being seen by guests.
