The Zambezi River
The Zambezi River is equally impressive at 1,599 miles long and is arguably the best river to go wildlife viewing. The Zambezi flows through multiple national parks where lions, elephants, zebras and giraffes roam. The most recognizable destination on the Zambezi is the world-famous Victoria Falls that rivals Niagara Falls for its majestic waterfalls of enormous magnitude. There are many luxury safari camps stationed near the river, making it desirable to grab a comfy nightcap before embarking on a river adventure on a cruise offered by the lodge or campsite. Hippos and Nile crocodiles are known to peek their heads above the water for spectators in boats to see. There’s also whitewater rafting tours available in several portions of the river.
