Declared a World Heritage Site, Victoria Falls is one of the world's greatest natural spectacles. Long before Scottish missionary and explorer Dr David Livingstone discovered the Falls in 1855, the local Batonga people had named the Mosi-oa-Tunya, 'the smoke that thunders'. Livingstone named them for his queen. Today, the nearby village rightly claims the title of Adrenalin Capital of Africa, home to a seemingly endless variety of adventure sports from bungee jumping to canoeing and white water rafting.
Indulge in two nights in a luxury tented suite with a private viewing deck and plunge pool at The Elephant Camp. Your stay includes all meals, local drinks and an opportunity to interact with the elephants at Wild Horizons Wildlife Sanctuary. Various adventures, such as helicopter flights,
