Victoria Falls

Victoria Falls, named after Queen Victoria, are neither the highest nor the widest falls in the world, though the are the largest in terms of the amount of water displaced. Named ‘Mosi-oa-Tunya’ (the Smoke that Thunders) by the locals, the falls are an understandable source of great pride in the region. Shared by Zambia and Zimbabwe, the falls are accessible from both.

Offering something completely different to the Zambian side of the Victoria Falls, the Zimbabwean town of the same name is known as the adventure capital of Africa. Adrenaline junkies revel in bungee jumping off the Victoria Falls Bridge, or white water rafting and river boarding down the mighty Zambezi River. During low water times, the view from the bridge connecting Zimbabwe and Zambia enables visitors to see right into the ‘skeleton’ of the falls, which offers a completely different perspective of the natural wonder.

A quaint town that’s considerably smaller than it’s Zambian counterpart Livingstone, the town of Victoria Falls thrives off tourism and welcomes guests with open arms. Wondering around its streets makes for a very pleasant way to take in the culture and meet some friendly locals. There are all manner of curio shops and markets to check out, while the local pubs and restaurants buzz throughout the year.

Home to one of Africa’s most famous hotels – the colonial Victoria Falls Hotel – Victoria Falls is steeped in history. A must-do on any trip to Zimbabwe, the little town refreshes and rejuvenates with its distinctive charm. With a choice of great accommodation options and activities, there’s always something to do. Speak to our expert safari consultants about your trip to Africa’s ‘Smoke that Thunders’.
