The Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park is found along the upper Zambezi River. It includes the Victoria Falls and stretches for about 12 kilometres up the Zambezi River above the Falls.
The park is estimated to be about 66 square kilometres, although there are plans to extend the Park further up river. Because the Park is small, it affords a wonderfully relaxing drive alongside the river for much of the circular route, and the wide variety of species can be easily seen.
The Park provides a home for numerous antelope species, zebra, giraffe, warthog and a variety of birds and smaller animals. Elephants cross the Zambezi and freely walk through the Park and the surrounding area.
