Welcome to Victoria Falls

Victoria Falls

Victoria Falls: First off please see the images tag at the top of this page to see our Understanding Victoria Falls map which will clearly show you where the Falls are situated on the border of Zimbabwe and Zambia. This shows,for those who do not know,  where the Victoria Falls are and why there is some confusion. The Victoria Falls are the world’s largest waterfall and they occur where the Zambezi River plummets over 100 metres down a sheer gorge.  As the Zambezi river creates the border that separates Zambia from Zimbabwe, the Victoria Falls can be viewed from both sides and in fact we recommend that you do view it from both sides regardless of which side you are staying at the time. The border posts both sides allow day visitors to walk across and back again. There is some confusion because although the waterfalls are called internationally the “Victoria Falls”, the town on the Zimbabwe side is also called Victoria Falls town. The town on the Zambian side is called Livingstone. In short – whether you decide to stay in or around Livingstone in Zambia or in and around Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe you will be at the Victoria Falls waterfall. The river is more than 1,5 kilometres wide at the point it plummets over the gorge. We leave it to your imagination to imagine the sight, sound and experience of viewing up close and personal 1500 metres of water falling in a sheet 100 metres downwards. Thunderous. Your imagination will not do the real thing justice and when you do get to see Victoria Falls you will be left awestruck and breathless.

 
It is one of the original Seven Wonders of the World. We think it is the original One Wonder of the world and we love it. The Falls are known locally as Mosi-Oa-Tunya meaning the smoke that thunders – a reference to the sound, and the fact that the spray from the falls forms a year-around-smoke-effect rising from the ground and visible from kilometres away. There are numerous activities available in Victoria Falls including golf, gambling, helicopter tours, bungee jumping, walking with lions, elephant feeding and spectacular safaris. Explorer David Livingstone named the falls for Queen Victoria when he first saw them in 1855. One of the seven natural wonders of the world, the falls have been attracting travellers and adventure seekers for decades, its pounding waters creating a mist that can be seen for miles and the sound of the falls, especially in the rainy season (November to April), making it difficult to hear anything else. There is a trail that runs along the cliff adjacent to the waterfall which visitors can use to reach the scenic viewpoints, and the Flight of Angels helicopter tour is a phenomenal way to see the falls from above. Guided tours are also available, which include collection and drop off from your hotel.
 
National Parks:  There are three national parks to explore while on holiday in Vic Falls - the Victoria Falls National Park, the Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park on the Zambian side of the falls and, about 120 miles (193km) further south, the Hwange National Park. These parks feature a vast selection of wildlife including elephant, buffalo, giraffe, zebra and various antelope; there are also occasional sightings of lion and leopard. There are a number of operators in Vic Falls town offering safaris to these national parks, as well as elephant-back safaris on Nakavango Estate and the 'walking with lions' experience at Masuwe Estate.
