A History of Victoria Falls

ID:75897887

Zimbabwe’s majestic Victoria Falls is one of the world’s 7 Natural Wonders and a UNESCO World Heritage site. While the breath-taking falls are neither the widest nor the highest in the world, when the river is in full flow it does form the largest cascading sheet of water.

Zimbabwe Conservation

We found this great blog and had to share. There is so much more to Zimbabwe, than Victoria Falls…. More traditions, more heart-warming initiatives, more hidden gems and the list goes on. One of the most unknown success stories of Zimbabwe lies in the Gonarezhou National Park – where an agreement was formed to protect the wildlife from poaching, while enabling the locals to thrive & grow. This agreement was named the CAMPFIRE and has been rolled-out throughout Africa with much success. After its initial treaty, the national park has become one of the best wildlife safari destinations with all parts of the park (wildlife and tribes) thriving. Read more on the below link.
