A visit to the Mosi Oa Tunya National Park to see the Victoria Falls is included in your tour. Due to time constraints on day 1 and to be sure not to miss it please ensure you arrive in Livingstone at least one day beforehand so your tour leader can arrange the visit for you. River levels vary with season but at high water (Feb-July) the Victoria Falls are over a mile wide with water falling some 100 metres into the Batoka gorge. It is the largest curtain of falling water in the world with spray is visible from 20 kilometres away, hence the local name Mosi Oa Tunya, (‘Smoke that Thunders’). At low water season (Aug-Jan) the river level drops considerably and the bottom of the Batoka gorge becomes visible. It remains an awesome sight.
Departing early, we head through lush country and small villages to Lusaka, Zambia’s Capital city. Lusaka is Southern Africa’s fastest growing city with approx. 1.7 million people and is located on the southern plateau at an elevation of 1300m with four main highways running north, south, east and west to different parts of Africa. This city is the commercial hub as well as the centre for the government. Our campsite for the evening is set in a tranquil and relaxing setting on a farm.
