Mosi-o-Tunya ‘is a good starting point for those on debut safari holidays’

People who have never been on a safari before might like to start off with Mosi-o-Tunya, according to one writer.

In a piece for the Daily Mail, Tina Walsh recommended the Zambian national park as a great place to start as people do not have to venture too far within the 41 square miles to spot an array of wildlife.

She recalled: "We'd already seen elephants dozing at the side of the road and giraffes and zebra right under our noses in the 15 minutes it took to get from the airport to the hotel."

What's more, those keen on safari holidays might be interested to hear Ms Walsh point out the animals allow people to get up close to them as there are no predators in the area.

And these views are echoed by Yvette Cardozo, writing for the Miami Herald, who revealed safaris in the African country can be intimate.
