THE ADVENTURE CAPITAL OF AFRICA
Victoria Falls & the Zambezi National Park
Combine Victoria Falls safaris, luxury yachts or island resort and experience a unique holiday combination like no other.
The Victoria Falls National Park was included on the World Heritage list in 1989.
The park comprises the left bank of the Zambezi River above the eastern half of Victoria Falls themselves, and a series of deep gorges below the falls.
The falls are the most significant feature of the park, and in February or March when the Zambezi is usually in full flood they form the largest curtain of falling water in the world.
Firmly positioned on the international map, Victoria Falls is a MUST SEE destination.
The options to combine Victoria Falls with yachts, safaris and island resorts are huge and will all depend on what sort of experience you are looking for.
We have examples here to whet your taste buds but we can also tailor make a Sail & Safari experience to match your interests, tastes, budget and number of people travelling.
Zambezi National Park
The Zambezi National Park owes its status and existence to Victoria Falls, one of the world’s largest waterfalls when it is in full flow, with a width of 1.7km. The original 56 000 hectare park was called the Victoria Falls National Park.
In 1978, an area of the Victoria Falls National Park split from the rest for very prosaic reasons – to allow the Town of Victoria Falls access to the Zambezi River; hence the re-naming of this section: the Zambezi National Park. The combination of the Zambezi National Park, Victoria Falls National Park and of course the falls themselves comprise a UNESCO world heritage site.
Recognised because of its proximity to the Victoria Falls – one of the seven wonders of the world – the Zambezi National Park has become a sought after destination in its own right. With 4 of the ‘Big 5’ as well as rarely seen wild dogs, and a wide variety of game including sable antelope, kudu and eland it is a natural attraction.
Adding to its appeal is the scenic beauty of this park. The road to Kazangula spilts the area into riverine vegetation and the Chambonda Vlei, comprised largely of mopani woodland, and huge riverine trees. Some of the most magnificent views of the Zambezi River, the 4th largest river in Africa – flowing through 6 countries, are found in this park. The river is also the lifeblood of the park, providing sustenance to its wildlife.
The different landscapes in the park make it an arborist and bird lover’s paradise, and of course, for the fishermen, the Zambezi River holds both charm and challenge. We are privileged to be allowed to live, work and play in this unique environment, and do so with the utmost respect. We look forward to sharing this honour with you as you discover its delights for yourself.
