The Victoria Falls or Mosi-oa-Tunya (the Smoke that Thunders) are located on the Zambezi River between Zambia and Zimbabwe. The falls which are approximately one mile wide and 420 feet high are a remarkable spectacle. The tremendous amount of water falls into a very peculiar, narrow slot-like chasm, and you can view the falls face-on, which makes for a very unusual spectacle. David Livingstone, a Scottish explorer, saw the falls in 1855 and renamed them after Queen Victoria, though they were known locally as Mosi-oa-Tunya. Livingstone was so moved by what he saw that he wrote: "Scenes so lovely must have been gazed upon by angels in their flight". The Victoria Falls is the largest single sheet of water in the world, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World. The great Zambezi River starts in northwest Zambia and meanders for 1,700 miles through several countries and empties into the Indian Ocean in Mozambique. This great river affects thousands of people and animals along the way. The sheer volume of water that flows through this planetary vein and manifests it's grandeur at Victoria Falls, cannot keep from stirring an emotional response from all who visit. We're likely to see hippos, crocodiles, giraffes, baboons, elephants, and birds of prey along the riverbank or on one of the many islands that dot this wide river.

The Chobe National Park in Botswana is one of the most sought-after safari destinations in Africa, where we'll be able to see the world's largest herds of African elephant, as well as a myriad of other animals: zebras, hippos, impalas, buffalo and several other predators. We'll participate in both the open jeep safari and the very unique boat safaris on the Chobe River which almost guarantee phenomenal photo opportunities of elephants playing and drinking at the water's edge, crocodiles sunning themselves on the banks of the river and hippo pods cooling in the water.
