Victoria Falls National Park
Victoria Falls National Park is in north-western Zimbabwe. Expect to see incredible water features and an array of animals in the rain forest. You should see elephants, buffalo, rhinos and hippos. Watch out for crocodiles basking in the river. You may want to see them from a safer distance at a nearby crocodile ranch.
Serengeti National Park
Serengeti National Park in Tanzania is another incredible place to travel. It has a unique ecosystem and is known for its annual migration of over one million wildebeest. Expect to see zebra, Nile crocodiles, and honey badgers.
