Victoria Falls

Located on the border of Zimbabwe and Zambia, the Victoria Falls (or Mosi-oa-Tunya; 'the smoke that thunders') is the world's largest curtain of falling water and one of Africa's most famous sites.  


Justifiably famous, the Falls are a must-see on any Southern Africa itinerary.  The Falls are best viewed from the Zambian side, though with the univisa allowing free access to both Zim and Zam it is worth seeing the falls from both sides.

As well as the famous adrenaline activities such as white rafting, bungee jumping and micro-lighting over the falls, there are a number of more sedate and interesting activities including walking with lions, walking with elephants, and cruises and canoe trips on the calm waters of the Upper Zambezi.

It is also possible to visit the game parks on either side of the falls (the Zam side is especially good for rhino), or even take a day trip to Chobe National Park in Botswana.


Victoria Falls: where to stay

The best option on the Zimbabwe side of the Falls, in a perfect position, is the newly refurbished Grand Old Dame of the Falls, the Victoria Falls Hotel.  If you want more of a safari lodge feel, the Victoria Falls Safari Lodge fits the bill in a great position overlooking a waterhole, or alternatively the smaller tented Elephant Camp is another good option.

Alternatively on the Zambia side of the Falls, there are a number of small lodges (River Club, Tongabezi, Sindabezi and Toka Leya) and two larger hotels, The Royal Livingstone and the Avani Victoria Falls Resort (formerly the Zambezi Sun).
