Zambia and Zimbabwe
Situated between Zambia and Zimbabwe, about 100 miles downstream from Victoria Falls, Lake Kariba is home to hippos, crocodiles, and dazzling fish. On the shore, you may see elephants, lions, cheetahs, leopards, Cape buffalos, and antelope. Bird life here is also prolific.
In addition to enjoying day cruises here, you can stay overnight on a river cruise ship such as the Zimbabwean Dream, with well-appointed cabins, jacuzzi, and fine dining.
South Luangwa National Park
This park along the Luangwa River has some of the highest concentrations of wildlife in Africa. Animals gather along the riverbanks and the many lagoons in the park. On a boat ride, you are sure to see a myriad of animals, such as Thornicroft’s giraffes, elephants, Cape buffaloes, and hippos galore.
When visiting Victoria Falls on the border of Zambia and Zimbabwe, a sunset cruise along the Zambezi River is a superb way to relax. Enjoy appetizers, local spirits, and good conversation amid beautiful scenery. You will see many birds and are likely to spot hippos, crocodiles, and even elephants!
