Victoria Falls - Zambia

Zambia - Livingstone 2

The constant roar and cloud of brilliant white spray that the spectacular Victoria Falls in Livingstone is famous for has earned it the apt title of “The Smoke that Thunders”. A World Heritage Site and one of the seven natural wonders of the world, this is the point where the Upper Zambezi River plummets 550,000 cubic metres of water over the edge into the Lower Zambezi every single minute.

Hissing and spitting, the spray rises to a height of 400 meters and more, and can be visible from 50 kilometers away. Crashing and rumbling, the immense body of water slashes deep into the gorge below. Adrenaline sport activities such as white water rafting, micro-lighting and bungee jumping make this the adventure capital of Africa.


The Mosi-oa-Tunya Park is well-known for its exciting array of birds, with many fish-eating raptors attracted to the rich pickings of the Zambezi River and some Southern African specials like the African Finfoot, white-backed night heron and Pel's Fishing owl. With no predators, the park provides a relaxing home for numerous antelope species, zebra, buffalo, giraffe, warthog, hippo and crocodile. Elephants freguently cross the Zambezi and walk freely through the park and the surrounding area.
