Tours with Russel Gammon

Russell Gammon traces his ancestry in Zimbabwe back three generations to John Meikle, a Scot, who entered the country as a transport rider for the first time in 1892.

Russell_Gammon_cv1_img_1Russell's passion for natural science combined with a love of the outdoors lead to a career as a Professional Guide and for over 20 years he has been leading canoeing and walking safaris throughout Southern Africa as well as Extended Safaris visiting destinations as far flung and varied as Egypt, Tunisia, Oman, Kenya and the Seychelles.

His family's prominent position in the formative years of his country inspired a fascination with Africa's history and over time Russell has developed a keen understanding of past events as well great insight into how they have shaped the culture and lives of the people of Africa. He has also made a detailed study of the life of the Victorian Explorer David Livingstone, who is a distant relative by marriage.

This research included accompanying an Expedition lead by the British Explorer Sir Ranulf Fiennes that retraced a portion of Livingstone's journey to Victoria Falls for the 150 year Centenary.

During his career Russell has built an outstanding reputation as a Guide and Master Story Teller and his presentations on The Life of David Livingstone is highly acclaimed. His "Mists of Time" Tour is a "tour de force" of the heroes and villains that have shaped the destiny of this continent that is both fascinating and highly entertaining.

His clients, in the past, have included DaimlerChrysler, Ford Australia, Toyota and World Presidents Organization and he has also worked with National Geographic, BBC and SABC on various projects.

He currently lives in Victoria Falls with his wife, Leanne who is a talented Artist and their two children, Tana and Ross.

Special Agent Packages

Between now and the end of the year, Cansaf will be offering some "special" group packages to our partners in the group, conference and incentive business. This is a good opportunity for corporate clients and other groups to come and experience the combination of Victoria Falls and Chobe. We envisage that space available in August and September (it is late in the day already) is going to dry up quickly, so if you have any groups looking for space for over this period then please let us know urgently.

Bunji Jumping

Plummet beyond your personal boundaries as you jump 111 metres off the Victoria Falls Bridge to the Zambezi River below. Try the Solo, Tandem, Back Dive, Star Elevator or Shooting Star off the bridge!

Lion Walk

15 minutes drive from the centre of Victoria Falls Town, you will find a group of lion cubs which range in age from 3 to 16 months. After a safety briefing, guests will interact with 2 or 3 lion cubs for a period of approximately 1 ½ hours!

Elephant Interaction

There can be few experiences in life that compare to spending time close to an African Elephant, feeding it's cavernous mouth, touching it's rough prickly skin, having it feel you back with its dexterous trunk! It is a fantastic learning experience.

White Water Rafting

If you're in the Falls, this may be your only chance to go White Water Rafting below the Seventh Wonder of the World! The Zambezi River below the falls is legendary for it's white water and should be at the top of your "to do" list!
