While Victoria Falls may be its crowning glory, the mighty Zambezi River, which forms the border with Zambia, offers safari experiences with a difference. This includes the beautiful and untouched Mana Pools along the banks of the Lower Zambezi, and Matusadona National Park on the shore of the man-made Lake Kariba. Along the river, embark on the only luxury riverboat with access to the lower part of the river, and spot a mixture of wildlife up close from sleeping crocodiles to water buffaloes whilst indulging in gourmet canapes. Enjoy the atmosphere along the banks of the river and prepare a traditional African ‘potjie’ dinner. Leave it to simmer over the fire as you join your expert guide on a river raft safari, returning to an African feast by candlelight.
