Victoria Falls, the smoke that thunders

One of The Seven Wonders of The World, the Victoria Falls, is situated in Western Zimbabwe. The Victoria Falls actually makes up five different waterfalls, and four of them are located in Zimbabwe – The Devil’s Cataract, Main Falls, Horseshoe Falls and Rainbow Falls. The Falls are stunning and are truly a once in a lifetime experience. The noise from the Falls can be heard from a distance as far as 40km! Around the Falls there is an abundance of unique and beautiful flora creating a gorgeous mini rainforest that can be explored with the magnificent Falls as a backdrop. The Big Tree is also something to look out for – a beautiful giant baobab tree that towers above us at 20m tall. The Zambezi National Park is merged with the Victoria Falls National Park and is bordered by the Zambezi River. The national park is home to the Big 5 (lion, buffalo, leopard, rhino and elephant), as well as giraffe, antelope, zebra and different type of buck, such as waterbuck, eland, kudu and impala. An array of accommodation is also offered in the national park, including lodges, fishing camps, camping sites and picnic sites for day visitors.
