3-Day Visit to Zambia to See the “Smoke that Thunders”

Victoria Falls is one of the seven natural wonders of the world. At over 5,600 feet wide and dropping over 300 feet, it is the largest curtain of water in the world. Here you will have the chance to explore Mosi-Oa-Tunya National Park and Victoria Falls itself. Experience a wide range of activities – from cultural to adrenaline loaded – or just relax taking in the beautiful scenery. This is the perfect way to end or begin any safari in the region.

20 Years of Experience & Passion

Our passion for Africa began with a dream of living on the continent – a dream realized. We explored parks, rivers, mountains and villages, learned about the flora and fauna, fell in love with everything, and came away wanting to share our passion for a remarkable continent. Africa Adventure Consultants was born of the desire to give more people the chance to experience Africa’s wonders. Let us guide you into the wilderness.

What experiences have you been dreaming of? Visit our destination pages to narrow your choices down, browse our safari types to get a sense of the activities and styles available, or talk with a Journey Specialist to hone in on the areas that will deliver the journey of your imagination.
