And then of course there is the Victoria Falls, described by the local tribesman as ‘Mosi-oa-Tunya’ - ‘the Smoke that Thunders’, in reference to the colossal columns of spray. The Victoria Falls are a spectacular sight and one of the undoubted natural wonders of the world, over a width of nearly 2 km.
The Victoria Falls area is also rapidly becoming known as one of the ‘Adventure Centres’ of Southern Africa with various adrenaline sports, breathtaking scenery and many other leisure options for outdoor lovers.
Some of the lodges and activities in South Luangwa are seasonal, but Zambia is a good year round safari destination offering walking, vehicular drives, boating activities, canoeing and more. It is one of the best safari experiences in Africa, with a particularly high standard of guiding. A popular combination is with Lake Malawi, often used for ‘R&R’ after a safari.
