The Zambezi Waterfront stretches along the banks of the Zambezi River in the stretch that runs from Botswana to the Victoria Falls.
It is home to the Zambezi National Park and the Matetsi Safari Area which are two beautiful safari areas with good game.
These protected areas act as a natural game corridor between Botswana’s Chobe National Park and Zimbabwe's Hwange National Park and elephant, buffalo, lion, leopard, giraffe, zebra and more are readily seen.
The waterfront acts as a magnet for game and is a good place to spot hippo, crocodile and iridescent birds such as bee-eaters, storks, herons, kingfisher, fish eagles and more.
