Victoria Falls - Smoke that thunders - www.classicencounters.com

Africa's undisputed "Adventure Capital", a World Heritage Site, a Natural Wonder of the World, the largest curtain of falling water on the planet.  Rich superlatives don't actually do full justice to this relatively small spot on the Zambezi River.

If you're looking for a quiet and romantic getaway, a few action and sun-filled days or simply want to add the finishing touches to your African Safari then you can't go wrong in Victoria Falls.

Victoria Falls is easily accessible from all of the major destinations in Africa and in itself is the main hub into Southern Africa's prime safari spots in Zambia, Zimbabwe, Botswana and South Africa.
