The Zambezi Sun, Zebras and Victoria Falls of Zambia: 4×4WorldExplorer.com 2008 Trans-Africa Adventure
An interview with veteran 4×4WorldExplorer.com traveler, Steven Ng told me about a beautiful fall in Zambia during the Trans Africa 2008 expedition. The group of 4×4WorldExplorer.com drove from South Africa back to Malaysia. The journey took more than a month.
It came no surprise that there was no better accommodation rather than the Zambezi Sun if you wanted to stay near the Victoria Falls of Zambia.
Instead of the usual welcome drink, the group got a shock by the welcome group of 3 traditional warriors armed with weapons and shields. That was a real shocker but a great welcome.
The hotel was a nice place to stay. Just a couple of meters away from the backyard is the Victoria Falls of Zambia. The hotel is so close that the mighty sounds of the waterfall can be heard carefully all the time from the hotel room.
On the next morning, there were visitors from the wild. It was the wild zebras. Having wild zebras in the compound of the hotel is probably the next best thing from going to the safari.
One of the largest fall in the world.
That day, it was gloomy. A bit of rain but it didn’t prevent us from seeing the massive Victoria Falls.
The Victoria Falls or Mosi-oa-Tunya (the Smoke that Thunders) is a waterfall located in southern Africa on the Zambezi River between the countries of Zambia and Zimbabwe. The falls are some of the largest in the world. – Wikipedia.org
The Victoria Falls is also a UNESCO World Heritage Site. After the sightseeing on one of the biggest falls in the world, the 4×4WorldExplorer.com continues their journey back to Malaysia.
They called it “the Smoke that Thunders”

Personally, I’ve been to Iguazu Falls in Brazil and I must say they are equally breathtaking!
