Victoria Falls
The Smoke that Thunders

Known locally as Mosi-oa-Tunya, translated as The Smoke That Thunders, mighty Victoria Falls has been named one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World and is claimed to be the largest single sheet of failing water in the world. Located between Zambia and Zimbabwe, the Zambezi River widens to 1.7 kilometres and then the full width of the river plunges 108 metres down into the Zambezi Gorge, sending clouds of spray up to 500 metres in the air, helping to sustain the surrounding lush rainforest.

The tour was very good indeed and the team worked well. There were some very long drives and I wonder whether these could be broken down. It is difficult as the tour length was perfect for someone like me who works and so the 14-16 day trip works well.

The camps were all good and there was not one that I felt was poor or not very nice.

The guide was good if a little laid back. ”

Awesome trip; and I'm glad I did it. In addition to tour lead, both the Driver (James Loronyokwe) and cook (John Mwai Murigu) both did a sterling job: journey was smooth everyday, despite the long hours, and food was delicious everyday!

Only minor flaw was the long days on the road, and some destinations on route were more of a stopover, rather than somewhere to see local life - but I guess we'll always have these when travelling over long distances.”

Excellent trip. I had a great time. There was nothing I could complain about. While we were not on a luxury camping expedition from what we paid, and it was not all that much, it was good value for our money. Guide was great and was always willing to talk with me, even answer what was probably an endless list of questions. Over 22 days we definitely had a feel for what the country looks like. ”
