Victoria Falls or Mosi-oa-Tunya (the Smoke that Thunders) is a waterfall located on the Zambezi River between Zambia and Zimbabwe and is the largest falls in the world, considered to be among the Seven Natural Wonders of the World, they were discovered by the famous Scottish Missionary David Livingstone.
Victoria Falls certainly live up to every reputation, and are awe inspiring and dramatic when encountered first hand, and an absolute must during any tailor made Southern Africa safari. The two National Parks surrounding the falls are relatively small, Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park is just 66 sq km, and Victoria Falls National Park on the Zimbabwean side is just 23 sq km, however both have an abundance of wildlife and birdlife which offer exciting game drives.
Fishing on the Zambezi is also a highlight, near to the huge pods of hippo and hungry crocodiles.Show Less
