1. Visit to view the majestic Victoria Falls
The beautiful Victoria Falls is located within the Victoria Falls National Park. A cobblestone pathway all the way through the rainforest leads you to various viewpoints along the length of the Falls. Looking for bird specials in the Rain Forest, listen for the strange calls of Trumpeter Hornbills echoing through the rainforest, their child-like cries often giving away their presence amongst the tree canopy. Also keep a sharp eye out for the colourful Schalow’s Turaco, a large but secretive bird, predominantly green but with a blaze of red feathers which show on the wing in flight. You may spot small, fast flying Sunbirds, or ground feeding Fire-finches and Blue Waxbills, among the many colourful and varied species found in the region.
The Falls are truly awe-inspiring – the sight, the sound, the smell; the humbling feeling that here indeed is a breath-taking masterpiece of nature. No photograph can begin to depict the reality…and nothing prepares you for your first sight.
On the way back to the hotel, delegates will be taken past the ‘Big Tree’ where they may stop for a short while. Apart from being the best known, this tree is possibly the oldest and biggest Baobab (Adansonia digitata) in Zimbabwe.
