An absolutely fantastic and relaxing way to see the African bush is by riding atop the back of the largest land walking mammal known to man.

There is no way to plan a trip to Africa without attempting to visit Victoria Falls. The beauty of this waterfall is inexpressible in words and beyond exhilarating in person. You can bungee jump off of the bridge or go on a jet boat or white water rafting trip at the bottom of the falls.(Image by Hannes Steyn)
Because of the popularity of Victoria Falls it is by far equipped with plenty of locations to book a room for the duration of your stay, whether it be a simple hotel room or a single, self-catering apartment.
Visiting the Livingstone Museum with your family gives your children a fantastic idea about what is what life was like for David Livingstone, a missionary who did a massive amount of work in this region. He did an indescribable amount of work in the area to have slavery abolished and was highly loved for it.
