Discover the awe-inspiring Victoria Falls — the largest waterfall in the world — which pours a continuous sheet of water into a 350-foot chasm separating Zimbabwe and Zambia. At roughly twice the height of Niagara Falls and over a mile long, Victoria Falls is one of the most incredible phenomena in the natural world. Learn from a local historian about how David Livingstone discovered the falls, and come to understand the geological forces that shaped them. Venture to Botswana’s renowned Chobe National Park to witness the largest concentration of elephant in the world. Take a game drive and boat excursion to discover the vast diversity of life that inhabits the park, including lions, leopard and giraffe. Learn about the traditional way of life and meet the locals on a visit to a nearby village, and gain an up-close perspective of elephants during an interaction with the gentle giants.
