Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park originates on the Zambian side of The Victoria Falls and stretches from the Batoka Gorge for 12km along the Zambezi River. At 66 sq. km, Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park is the smallest in Zambia and Africa's Eden, but it is the most accessible and packs a punch with what it has to offer. Sheer awe as you experience the thundering spray from the magnificent Falls to quiet contemplation as you approach the endangered white rhino on a guided safari further along the park.

Essential Traveller Information
PLAN YOUR TRIP

Perhaps the most accessible national park in Africa’s Eden, Mosi-oa-Tunya is positioned between Livingstone and The Victoria Falls itself.

The number one reason to visit Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park is to view and experience the awe-inspiring Victoria Falls. Mosi-oa-Tunya translates to “The smoke that thunders”. The Falls plummet to the bottom of the Batoka Gorge and rise back up in plumes of spray and cloud above the gorge’s edge, creating the surrounding rainforest. Visitors to the Zambian side of Victoria Falls can experience both the surrounding rainforest and see the face of the Falls.

Game viewing is the main attraction in the extended section of Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park along the Zambezi River. While Africa’s main predators are absent, the Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park is a great location to see a wide variety of other wildlife. Visitors can see migratory elephant herds (during drier spells), giraffe, waterbuck, buffalo, impala, wildebeest, zebra, warthogs and many others. A particular highlight will be to find the endangered white rhino, which is heavily protected in the park by rangers. There is even the opportunity to approach these splendid animals on foot with a professionally guided tour.

The park also contains some historical sites left by the first European settlers, including a cemetery and the Old Drift Crossing Point.
