Home of the thundering smoke


While Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park may be one of the smallest of its kind in Zambia, it packs a punch unlike any other. What’s its secret? The park is home 25% of Victoria Falls, a UNESCO Natural World Heritage Site and the thrilling seasonal Devil’s Pool. Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park gives visitors a view of the dramatic Eastern Cataract which runs down the length of mighty Victoria Falls.

But the Victoria Falls experience doesn’t stop there! Cross the footbridge that sways through a cloud of spray towards the Knife Edge, a slippery walkway that runs right along the crags. Or make your way down the slopes to the banks of the Zambezi where the Boiling Pot (a massive whirlpool) roars away.

Spanning a mere 66km², this park is nonetheless also great for a healthy dose of game-viewing with your sight-seeing. Several species of antelope as well as buffalo, zebra, giraffe, and warthog call the park home while elephants can often be spotted crossing the Zambezi towards Mosi-oa-Tunya’s ‘sister park’ on the Zimbabwean side of the border. Plus: bird-watchers will be delighted to hear the park is home to 35 species of raptors such as Taita falcon, black eagle, peregrine falcon and augur buzzard.
