The Zambezi River crashes 300 feet into a chasm stretching over half a mile in length to create one of the world’s most spectacular waterfalls–Victoria Falls, or, as the locals call it, “the smoke that thunders!” A unique destination, Victoria Falls has been declared a World Heritage Site. Here, you can pass over the falls in light aircraft, helicopters and parachutes, bungee-jump off the bridge, or go whitewater rafting.


The wildlife of Zambia is a major drawcard to the country. If time is tight, spend an afternoon at the nearby Zambezi or Mosi-oa-Tunya National Parks, where you can experience some of the thrill of an African safari. Nearby is Botswana’s Chobe National Park offering a good mix of land- and water-based game-viewing.


Be a true explorer in the more remote parts of the country by visiting the Lower Zambezi and Kafue National Parks and the beautiful South Luangwa National Park. All of them are accessible by light aircraft, and offer diverse landscapes, from plains to wetlands, that are sprinkled with lakes and islands.
