Day 5 (Sun): Enjoy a leisurely breakfast, then put your walking shoes on and depart on a guided tour to the spectacular Victoria Falls, known locally as Mosi-Oa-Tunya-“the smoke that thunders”. The first European to see the falls and to name them after his queen, was the intrepid missionary and explorer David Livingstone who saw the falls in November 1855 and was so enraptured by their beauty that he wrote in his journal that ”scenes so lovely must have been gazed down upon by angels in their flight”.
