The smoke that thunders will give you a thrilling introduction to Africa's wilderness. The incredible display seems to come from nowhere as a thunderous sheet of water disappears into the chasm below. Victoria Falls has been declared one of the natural wonders of the world, and it remains completely natural. There are no flashing lights or big-brand advertising signs, no chain coffee houses or buildings crowding around the precipice. Instead, baboons scamper along the trails, narrow bridges run alongside the mile-wide falls, and there are countless places to be completely alone with the falls. You will want to bring your raincoat as the vast clouds of spray emerge from the abyss to quickly soak every visitor.
You will be greeted at Livingstone International Airport and transferred directly to Victoria Falls, where a guide will lead you along the trails on the Zambian side of the falls. Take your time to allow the falls to engage all of your senses softly and then enjoy lunch at a small café. From here, you will be driven into Mosi oa Tunya National Park, where a savannah stretches out from the Zambezi River. Your camp there provides the first night of luxury under canvas with zebra and elephant that wander past as you continue to absorb the untrammeled beauty of Southern Africa.
