A laughing dove, our latest fan, dropped into the Victoria Falls office to take the term "landing page" to another level...or perhaps he was just figuring out how to "tweet".  Follow the story on Facebook.

A Tip for William and Kate

by Zambezi

12 April 2011

If the soon to be newlyweds are still looking for suggestions of where to go on's our top tip!

Victoria Falls and Big Five - This is one of our all time favourite honeymoon safaris.  Three nights at Victoria Falls, one of the seven natural wonders of the world, including a guided tour of the ‘smoke that thunders’ and a sunset cruise along the mighty Zambezi, followed by three nights at an intimate bush camp set in Zimbabwe’s premier wildlife destination and conservation area, Hwange National Park.  Now that’s what we call the perfect match!
