Mosi-Oa-Tunya National Park
Mosi-Oa-Tunya National Park is set along the Upper Zambezi River. Most famously it is the home of the Victoria Falls, one of the seven natural wonders of the world. The Park is split in two between the wildlife park and the Falls park, each with separate entrances.
In real terms Mosi-Oa-Tunya is quite small as a National Park, being that it is only 66 square kilometres. Visitors can drive around the circular route in a couple of hours. However, this belies the amazing amount of animal species it supports. Elephants frequently cross the Zambezi to roam the park, numerous Antelopes species can be seen and, of course, the herds of Zebra and Giraffes.
With minimal predators, the animals are incredibly relaxed which offers brilliant opportunities to get closer. Here is your opportunity for an almost guaranteed view of White Rhinos, rarely seen elsewhere on safari.
Masses of activities are available, particularly around the Victoria Falls themselves, which lends greatly to its draw as a location for more than Safari. But essentially the wildlife can be spotted from land or canoe giving a whole new perspectives of the National Parks diversity.
Being twinned with the Victoria Falls National Park on the Zimbabwe side, there is scope to see the Falls from two very different angles.
