Make sure to visit this UNESCO World Heritage Site, which is also one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World. When you stand in front of the Victoria Falls you will understand why the indigenous tribe the Tonga gave it the beautiful and descriptive name of Mosi-Oa-Tunya (The Smoke That Thunders).

Your Tour Leader will recommend a good selection of restaurants from which you can choose to experience the cuisine on offer in Victoria Falls.
