We're giving away the trip of a lifetime to Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe and Chobe National Park in Botswana.

Both hotels are in prime locations for spotting the African wildlife; Victoria Falls Safari Club looks out over the Zambezi National Park, where herds of elephants pass by to drink at the Zambezi River, while Ngoma Safari Lodge is set above the Chobe River and open floodplains.

The Clues:
These pretty villages up high are a hit with historians, travellers and lovers alike - if they can reach them. Stacked on steep cliffs, taunting gravity, the colourful houses brighten up 11 miles of rocky coastline. Legend attributes the Technicolor aesthetic to fisherman wanting to distinguish their homes and, some say, keep an eye on their wives more easily - a rainbow welcome after the day's catch. The UNESCO World Heritage Site dates back to the 11th century, with ancient forts and defensive towers found to have been reinforced in the 16th century against Ottoman attacks. But it is love, not war, that remains a draw for visitors: romantic trails connect the villages, with one particular section covered with amorous graffiti and padlocks hooked onto fences for all to see. WHERE ARE YOU?
Identify the place described above, and its location.

Title: Cinque Terre, Italy


en.wikipedia.org/wik…rre
The Cinque Terre (Italian pronunciation: [ˈtʃiŋkwe ˈtɛrre]; Ligurian: Çinque Tære, meaning "Five Lands") is a rugged portion of coast on the Italian Riviera. It is in the Liguria region of Italy, to the west of the city of La Spezia, and comprises five villages: Monterosso al Mare, Vernazza, Corniglia, Manarola, and Riomaggiore. The coastline, the five villages, and the surrounding hillsides are all part of the Cinque Terre National Park and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
--------------------


en.wikipedia.org/wik…rre
The first historical documents on the Cinque Terre date back to the 11th century
In the 16th century to oppose the attacks by the Turks, the inhabitants reinforced the old forts and built new defence towers.
---------------------------

en.wikipedia.org/wik…rre
A walking trail, known as Sentiero Azzurro ("Azure Trail"), connects the five villages. The trail from Riomaggiore to Manarola is called the Via dell'Amore ("Love Walk") and is wheelchair-friendly.

Via dell’Amore’s Famous Padlocks
One of the interesting things that you’ll see along the trail are padlocks attached to wire mesh under the tunnel near the Manarola side. Young loves wanting to seal their love forever, come to Via dell’Amore, write their names on the padlocks and attach them on a wire mesh along the trail.

Good luck!
