The Zambezi River
The Zambezi River is an amazing spectacle in itself. The upper river before you reach the waterfall is beautiful and has an abundance of wildlife that can be seen on an excursion on the river. This ‘river of life’ invites you to experience some time on the river itself, either on a river cruise or an excursion to one of the many islands upstream. This is a peaceful stretch of the river before it reaches the waterfall and spills noisily over the edge creating tumbling water that rushes through the gorges as rapids.
