Victoria Falls

Victoria Falls is one of the eight natural world wonders and it's definitely understandable why. The falls are the largest falls in the world and are located on the border of Zambia and Zimbabwe.


Botswana is one of the greatest safari secrets on the African continent, with 40% of the land being recognized as national parks or game reserves and not yet discovered by mass tourism, it should definitely be on your bucket list. Botswana is also a great destination for responsible tourism, as they are very committed to low-impact tourism.


Namibia, the country of golden deserts and blue skies. Whoever thought that Namibia only has sand to offer is so wrong. Namibia has some of the most fascinating tribes. It's also home to the highest concentration of free-roaming cheetahs on the African continent and has the oldest and second-largest canyon in the world.
