Specials in Victoria Falls

On the mighty Zambezi River, the Victoria Falls cut a deep gash into the earth along the border between Zimbabwe and Zambia. These astonishing falls, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, are aptly known to locals as Mosi-Oa-Tunya, the smoke that thunders, and the spray from the falls can be seen from some kilometres away.

The famous explorer David Livingstone was the first European to find the falls and named them after Queen Victoria. He famously said of this spectacular natural wonder “scenes so lovely must have been gazed upon by angels in their flight”.

Victoria Falls is not only one of the most beautiful natural spectacles to see in Africa, it’s also an adventure enthusiast’s dream, with an unparalleled menu of activities to choose from in the area. The white water rafting is hard to beat anywhere in the world, while kayaking, bungee jumping, gorge swinging, abseiling and swimming beneath the falls or at the top in Devil’s Pool are among the other offerings.

The laidback towns of Livingstone (on the Zambian side) and Victoria Falls (on the Zimbabwean side) are both worth a visit in their own right, as are the national parks that wrap themselves around either side of the falls.

To see the falls in full flow, visit at the end of the rainy season roughly between March and April, when aerial views are also at their best. In the drier months that start in April and peak in around November, the lower water level is better for adventure activities around the base of the falls, and the humidity is not quite so intense. Ideally, you should experience the falls during both the wet and dry seasons to get a fuller picture of their magic.
Both sides of the falls offer a wide variety of accommodation options ranging from simple and social backpackers right through to old colonial stalwarts like the and intimate bush camps. The Zimbabwean side tends to be a little cheaper, while just outside of Livingstone you’ll find some of the most exclusive riverside options.
The small national parks that wrap around Victoria Falls on either side of the border remain remarkably underexplored and are home to a wide array of wildlife including large herds of buffalo and elephants. The elephants can often be seen crossing the Zambezi, which is also full of hippos and crocodiles.

The spray from the falls nourishes a lush green rainforest on the Zimbabwean side, which supports a variety of trees including ebony and fig. Away from the falls you’ll find forests of teak and mopane, as well as some striking baobabs.
