Wildlife aside, Zambia is also home to one of the greatest sights in nature – the Victoria Falls, known by the much more apt name of Mosi-oa-Tunya (‘the smoke that thunders’) to the local Kololo tribe who first showed them to David Livingstone. When the Zambezi is in flood, the spray from the mile-wide falls as they plunge into the gorge below can be seen from miles away. The falls are a focus for all kinds of hair-raising activities, from white-water rafting to bungee jumping and the original gorge swing. Upstream, more sedate pastimes include canoe safaris and picnics on river islands.
