Nestled on the Zambezi River, at the border between Zimbabwe and Zambia, Victoria Falls is a magnificent waterfall and a natural wonder of the world. With a width of 1,708 meters (5,604 ft) and a height of 108 meters (354 ft), it is widely renowned as one of the largest and most awe-inspiring waterfalls on the planet. In 1855, Scottish explorer David Livingstone named the falls after Queen Victoria. However, the local Tonga people call it "Mosi-oa-Tunya," meaning "the smoke that thunders," referring to the immense mist and thunderous roar produced by the cascading water. The area surrounding Victoria Falls is a popular tourist destination, offering a range of exciting activities such as bungee jumping, white-water rafting, and helicopter tours. Visitors can witness the falls from either Zimbabwe or Zambia, each side presenting a unique perspective and a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
Today participate in the activities of your choice, which could be a cultural tour or as a gentle introduction to what lies ahead, opt for a game drive to start your wildlife spotting journey. Whatever you choose, get ready to immerse yourself in the beauty and wonder of this incredible destination.

Sabi Sands is an exclusive private game reserve nestled in the southwestern region of the Kruger National Park, South Africa. It has earned a reputation as one of the most prestigious safari destinations in Africa, providing some of the world's best wildlife sightings. Encompassing 65,000 hectares, Sabi Sands Game Reserve shares a 30-miles unfenced boundary with the Kruger National Park, enabling wildlife to roam freely between the two regions. Here, you'll discover a diverse range of fauna, including the Big Five (lion, leopard, elephant, buffalo, and rhinoceros), as well as cheetah, wild dog, and hyena.
