Open grassy plains and savannahs, forests and bush landscapes stretch as far as the eye can see. The 1000-meter-high and rather sparsely populated country is dominated by the majestic Zambesi River, which is regarded as a lifeline and at the world-famous Victoria Falls, crashes spectacularly into the canyon at a distance of 1.7 km across the gorge and covering everything in fine water mist! The first European to sight the waterfalls was David Livingstone in the middle of the 19th century, who also gave the Victoria Falls its name. There is no better way to explore the area around the Zambesi River than by helicopter flight over the falls, a sporty canoeing trip or a romantic sundowner cruise.
