Rhino walks
: The park is a wildlife sanctuary and worth a visit, not only for the sight of what are Zambia's only remaining rhino, but also for the common species including the odd roaming elephant. On the northern bank of the Zambezi River, within the Mosi-oa-Tunya Park you can still see an old cemetery from the colonial days over 100 years ago. Overall this small Zambian park is a must, if not for the wildlife then definitely for the mighty and misty Victoria Falls.
