Part of UNESCO World Heritage, this park is one of the world's wildest and best preserved natural ecological areas, also renowned for game viewing by canoe and walking safaris. The best time to visit the park is at the end of the dry season (August to October) when large numbers of elephant, buffalo, waterbuck and impala come to the river to drink and graze along its banks.
The park located south of the Victoria Falls is famous for its great herds of elephant, an estimation of 40 000 of them. This park has a large variety of animals with over 100 species of mammals and nearly 400 bird species recorded.
"The Smoke that Thunders" as they were called by the first inhabitants of the region is one of the world's greatest natural spectacles. The falls are 1700 m wide and plunge 100 m in the Zambezi Gorge below sending clouds of spray which can reach 1km high and can be seen over 30km away.
The Park has one of the largest concentrations of black and white rhinoceros, other animal species include giraffe, eland, zebra, sable antelope, kudu, klipspringer, leopard, hyena, cheetah, hippo and crocodile. Some of the world’s best ancient Rock art painting dated at least 2000 years ago can be found in caves and crevices as a testimony of the lives of the San hunter-gatherers,who once lived in the region.
