victoria falls highlights – zambia

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.
