Named Mosi-oa-Tunya – The Smoke Which Thunders – by locals, the Victoria Falls is an UNESCO World Heritage site and one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World. The largest waterfall in the world, the Falls is created as the mighty Zambezi River makes a sudden kilometre-wide drop, plunging over 100 metres into a vast and spectacularly beautiful gorge.
Two national parks – Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park and Zambezi National Park – adjoin the site of the indescribably breathtaking falls, which is mere minutes away from Mbano Manor Hotel. The Victoria Falls is a must-have inclusion in every luxury safari and holiday package to Africa, rewarding the discerning traveller with an unforgettable experience. Every well-considered regional upmarket itinerary includes a visit to the Victoria Falls, offering both the magnificence of the Falls itself, and a luxurious safari experience.
At Mbano we delight in daily sightings of wildlife – mostly in the evenings. Since we started construction four of the big Five – lion, leopard, buffalo and elephant – have already paid a visit, curious about their neighbours.
