The Victoria Falls is well known as Mosi-oa-thunya, the Smoke that thunders. Evidence of this can be seen from an aircraft, but it hardly prepares a visitor for what is in store. A roaring sound can be heard on approaching the Mai falls.

The restaurant is set in thatched African style. At the entrance one is met by a resident witch doctor for fortune telling. The African drums beat slowly to beckon the diners. Once inside, you are treated to the most mouth watering range of game meat served with various local dishes. There are local groups that provide entertainment of various local music and dance. I was particularly fascinated by a session on the drums beating to different tunes. The food is well prepared and the waiters make it a worthwhile experience.
The National Park is one hour from the Victoria Falls. This provides a convenient one night side trip. This game reserve is one the largest in Africa. The best way to get there is to drive through the park on your way to Hwange National Park from Victoria Falls in order to see the game right through. The park is the home of the big five. Accommodation ranges from lodge type to three-star hotel. There are well equipped lodges and tents in the park.
The cruise start upstream from the Victoria Falls. This offer a visitor a chance to see the sunset. Sighted can be game like the crocodile lying by the banks , or elephants crossing the river; now that's a sight not to be forgotten.
