Victoria Falls

Victoria Falls, known locally as the Mosi-oa-Tunya ‘The smoke that thunders’ is the world’s largest waterfall. This incredible World Heritage Site is formed by the Zambezi River plunging over a mile-wide gorge, raising a spectacular spray visible from miles away. In 1855, David Livingstone became the first European explorer to witness the waterfall and proclaimed the scene was so lovely it must have been gazed upon by angels in their flight! Victoria Falls is perfectly placed along the Zimbabwean and Zambian border, with both countries offering multiple viewing points inside lush rainforests facing the waterfall. Its central location in Southern Africa, provides easy access to multiple safari destinations in the region including South Africa, Botswana, and Namibia. The Zambezi River also acts as a source of life for wildlife residing in several national parks, with game viewing opportunities available by foot, vehicle, or cruise boat. Explorers are spoiled for choice on both sides of the border with world-class hotels, restaurants, luxury bush camps and affordable lodges. An extraordinary number of experiences are also available ranging from sunset cruises, helicopter flights, white-water rafting and so much more. Furthermore, the 110m deep gorge serves as the backdrop for various adrenaline activities including the famous bungee jump off the bridge, with the region earning itself the reputation as the Adventure Capital of Africa!
