A sight of the rainbow at the Victoria Falls (one of the seven natural Wonders of the World) on the Zambezi river is one to behold and cherish for a lifetime. This majestic waterfall not only divides the two flora & fauna-rich nations of Zimbabwe and Zambia but is also an adrenaline-junkie’s paradise. Try everything from bungee jumping, white-water rafting, helicopter flights, swimming on the edge of the Falls and much more.
Beyond Victoria Falls, the Mana Pools National Park is great for their elephant and lion population. The attractive birdlife is also a bird-watcher’s delight as is the night-game drive at the Hwange National Park.
While in Zambia, explore seventeen other magnificent waterfalls that take travelers to the rural parts of the country, introducing them to the enchanting local culture and village life. Here, look for the Big Five as well as the African Wild Dogs. From the North and South Parks on the hippo and croc-infested Luangwa River, to the wide expanse of the Lower Zambezi and the vast and little-explored Kafue, Zambia is a wildlife-lover’s paradise.
