Zambezi River Expedition The Zambezi River’s Victoria Falls has awed visitors with its grandiosity and its beauty for time memorial. A world heritage site and one of the seven natural wonders of the world, “Vic Falls” remains protected under the auspices of the Mosi-Oa-Tunya National Park in Zambia. Spilling into a gorge nearly four hundred feet deep and a mile wide, the falls’ spray has created its own tropical rainforest ecosystem in the midst of semi-arid African tundra, replete with a dazzling array of flora, monkeys and birds of a thousand varieties, and a constant array of ephemeral rainbows. Due to the spectacular nature of Vic Falls and to the abundance of activities in the area, Mosi-Oa-Tunya is the safest and the most oft visited tourist destination in Zambia. Contrary to the media’s interpretation of the region, Zambian government agencies have kept the area safe and free of political unrest in order to maintain its thriving tourist industry. Nearby Livingstone, Zambia likewise has maintained political stability, and boasts quaint English-style districts of tin-roofed Victorian homes and wooden verandas. Dubbed the adventure capital of Africa, the area surrounding Vic Falls offers a range of activities, from bungee jumping over the Zambezi to sunset safari canoe cruises on the river’s mellower stretches; and just downstream of the falls courses one of the most thrilling and adventurous river trips in the world! An authentic African adventure, the Zambezi remains one of the greatest destinations for adventure travel on Earth.
