Watered by the Zambezi River and filled with lush vegetation, the park attracts a wide variety of wildlife as well as many species of birds.

Frisky elephants may provide some entertainment while hippos hold their gaze at you from the safety of the waterhole and crocodiles bake in the morning sun. Over 400 bird species have been recorded in the park with notable varieties including the African finfoot, Pel’s fishing owl and African skimmers that can be found on sandbanks or skimming the water in the wet season.

Breakfast

This enormous sheet of falling water was first discovered by David Livingstone in 1855, although it had been known to the local people for much longer than that. It is shared by two countries, Zambia to the north and Zimbabwe to the south. Around two thirds of the falls are located on the Zimbabwe side and this country is also considered to have more classical views of the mains falls with footpaths leading you to breathtaking viewpoints such as Devils Cataract, Main Falls, Horseshoe Falls and the very popular Rainbow Falls. The sights from here are considered some of the best on the planet while the sheer force of the tumbling water is a sensory treat as water plunges and tumbles, sending sprays of mist up into the skies.
