Blend this with aerial activities, land activities or water activities - add a dash of nightlife with traditional dance shows, fine dining and eating and you have a safe and perfect safari holiday destination

The town of Victoria Falls is small and easy to negotiate

There's a moderate amount of pressure from touts as you walk down the street but nothing ominous or intolerable

Travel destinations in the Victoria Falls region

Botswana
has the Wild Animals but is Expensive

Lower Zambezi and Kariba offer a more affordable true safari experience and is connected by two roads
1) a very poor dirt road on the Zimbabwe Side
2) on the Zambian side - 8 hours drive on a tar road
( very poor in sections)

Hwange Park offers crowdless game viewing

Zambia has excellent isolated parks in real Africa but don't try to drive their - rather Fly In

Namibia has the best infrastruture and is the most
affordable for budget minded travelers
