Starting your tour, you will land in Lusaka, Zambia’s cosmopolitan capital, is a typical modern African city.

From day 2, you start getting off the beaten track and heading to Victoria Falls. One of the original natural wonders of the world, the Victoria Falls is a World Heritage Site and an extremely popular tourism attraction. Known locally as ‘The Smoke that Thunders’ this spectacle is accessible from both Zambia and Zimbabwe and it is an ideal place to combine a game viewing and water sports. While visiting the falls you have plenty of opportunity to take in this magnificent view.
To discover how the Falls were formed and what local customs and traditions surround them it is well worth booking a Wild Horizons tour of the Falls. Described by the Kololo tribe living in the area in the 1800's as 'Mosi-oa-Tunya' - 'the Smoke that Thunders' and in more modern terms as 'the greatest known curtain of falling water', Victoria Falls are a spectacular sight of awe-inspiring beauty and grandeur on the Zambezi River, bordering Zambia and Zimbabwe.
Take the skies and jump onto your 12-minute Wild Horizons Helicopter Flight Zambia takes off over the Zambezi River and circles above the magnificent Victoria Falls and surrounding islands, before returning over the Mosi–oa–Tunya Zoological Park. The 25-minutes flight includes flying over the local villages to the breathtaking Batoka Gorge along the Zambezi River, before circling back over the falls and returning to the park.
Even though you are getting to know Zambia – you will also have the opportunity cross the border into Botswana and visit Chobe National Park. With a local guide, you will spend the morning game viewing along the Chobe River. When your cruise has finished, you will visit a nearby hotel on the riverbank for lunch. With another afternoon game drive in the Chobe National Park you will have the opportunity to enjoy an abundance of wildlife before returning back to Zambia. Where you have another cruise opportunity on the Zambezi along the river boundary of the Mosi-Oa-Tunya National Park, offering visitors an excellent opportunity for spotting crocodiles, hippos, and even elephants.
