The sheer enormity and power of the Victoria Falls never fails to humble its visitors. Adventure junkies flock here for the thrills the mighty Zambezi River offers, while others are content to marvel at the unrivalled geographical wonder of the place. Although this curtain of water is the major attraction of the area, there is much more to enjoy in the vicinity. The Victoria Falls region is a convenient hub from which to explore a network of 19 spectacular national parks and reserves in the four countries that meet in this particular corner of Africa. The featured wilderness areas in Zimbabwe, Zambia, Botswana and Namibia do not only provide a haven for wildlife but also protect some of the world's most endangered birds and a unique wetlands system vital for their survival. Beyond the Victoria Falls - Forays into Zambia, Zimbabwe, Botswana and Namibia provides an overview of each country as well as thorough descriptions of the parks, including information on how to get there, their geography, vegetation, fauna, flora, activities and accommodation. The border towns of Livingstone, Victoria Falls, Kasane and Katima Mulilo are also discussed in detail. Key points regarding road, air and train travel between and within the parks as well as useful advice on climate, visas and border crossings, currency, culture, and health and safety are given. Tailor-made park maps are complemented by GPS coordinates and useful contact details.
