Such is nature…

Each year the travel world does a tally, a review of the year that’s been, of the people and places that stood out. It’s called the World Travel Awards and it’s an award we work towards with each day that passes and each guest we welcome. But while we constantly (and gladly) work to improve, enhance and grow, as people and as a lodge (Zambia’s Leading Safari Lodge), the Victoria Falls doesn’t have to do anything at all.

And yet, it finds itself with a nomination among Africa’s greatest attractions, for the title of “Africa’s Leading Destination“. Each year it continues to propel the weight of one of Africa’s mightiest rivers over its cliff face, 108 metres down into the smoke that envelops the gorge below. It never worries about doing a better job, because such is nature – content and proud yet, always, mesmerising.

Even when the water is low, the Falls running dry, they impress with the improved visibility of the gorge’s grand walls and the emergence of the Devil’s Pool.

We invite you to cast your vote for what we’re sure is Africa’s Leading Destination in this year’s World Travel awards… The Victoria Falls. A scene so lovely, as explorer David Livingstone said, that “must have been gazed upon by angels in their flight.”
