Mosi-oa-Tunya

Soul-soothing relaxation meets heart-thumping adventure in one of Africa’s most unique safari destinations at the Victoria Falls.


The Smoke that Thunders

Africa's fourth-largest river, the Zambezi evokes mystery and adventure renowned across the world. Herds of elephants swim across the Zambezi River, as pods of hippos grunt in pools of consternation and crocodiles bask on the banks. At the Victoria Falls, a staggering eight million litres of water flows into the gorge every second.
