From elephants, to zebras to antelope, there is not an African animal that will go unseen at the Victoria Falls Game Reserve in Zimbabwe.  The area is surrounded by acres of the Zambezi National Park and has the Masue river running through the middle.  The best part is that all guests are guaranteed an up-close and personal experience with the elephants.  Even if you do not catch a herd traveling through the reserve, the reserve will release its herd they kept for African safari rides on elephants backs to the public during their feeding time.  The elephants are approachable and look beautiful in their natural surroundings.  If you’re looking for the perfect destination for your once in a lifetime African vacation, this may be the place for you.
