The Perfect Victoria Falls Honeymoon SafariVictoria Falls is the ideal destination for a honeymoon or romantic safari. Victoria Falls is an awe-inspiring sight, and it's easy to see why it has become one of the most popular destinations for couples on honeymoon or romantic safari.
Canoeing On The Upper ZambeziYour correspondent has been travelling and going on safari in Africa since the early 1980s. I have lost count of the many, majestic sunsets, of the unique wildlife moments accidentally captured by a camera and of the multitude of happy days with friends in remote places.
Best Victoria Falls Adventure ActivitiesThe Victoria Falls is not only celebrated as one of the worlds most beautiful sights but it also is known as the adventure capital of Africa. With Victoria Falls being on most safari itineraries it is good to know what to do and see when in town, whether you are staying on the Zambian or on the Zimbabwean side of the Falls.
Best Victoria Falls Relaxed ActivitiesThe Victoria Falls area has gained a reputation over the past two decades as one of the adventure centres of the world. From bungee jumping to white water rafting, there will be some activity for the adrenalin junkie. However, this is not what the Vic Falls was traditionally about.
