Get to Know Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park
Known as “The Smoke That Thunders”, this small park protects not only the Zambian side of Victoria Falls but a sanctuary packed with plains game too.
Entering the Victoria Falls section of Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park, you’ll find well laid-out footpaths leading to a number of viewpoints. While the bulk of the falls (around three quarters, in fact) lies in Zimbabwe, there are some real highlights to be had on the Zambian side which winds its way up close to the cascading sheets of water, across the “Knife-Edge Bridge”, and down to the swirling, churning “Boiling Pot” at the base of the falls.
Having viewed the falls from every possible angle, consider a game drive in the wildlife section of the park to see Zambia’s only white rhino.
