Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park Reviews
Animals Have the Right of Way May 12, 1997
This Park extends to Livingstone and Victoria Falls. It is one of the most visited National Parks in Zambia, home to wildlife including elephants, lions, to mention but a few. Since this is Africa, it is important to remember that the animals are wild and dangerous. Entering the park requires strict adherence to the park rule. The first and most important being that animals have right of way. Speeding in the park is prohibited, maximum speed is 55km/ hour. At least when I was there, it may have increased based on tourism demands.
Damaging historical artifacts is prohibited and can lead to imprisonment if caught, one can not build fires within the park either. Since it house the Zambezi river, swimming or paddling in the river is highly prohibited. I will tell you now that there are no ready lifeguards unless you bring your own. Even then it is not possible to swim or dive in the river for obvious safety reasons.
PS: “Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” Mark Twain
