Victoria Falls holidays

One of the seven Natural Wonders of the World and a UNESCO World Heritage Site, Victoria Falls is one of Africa's most remarkable geographical features and the world's largest sheet of falling water. Located on the border between Zimbabwe and Zambia, visitors cannot fail to be inspired and amazed by the sheer size, power and beauty of the thundering curtain of water, which at more than 100 metres in height is roughly twice the height of Niagara Falls.

Although Victoria Falls straddles both Zimbabwe and Zambia, Zimbabwe boasts three quarters of the water and the best views. The Zambian side can dry up completely between September and December whilst Zimbabwe has water flow year round.

The falls are known locally as Mosi-oa-Tunya – 'the smoke that thunders'. Walk through the rainforest stopping at viewpoints to experience spectacular views and photo opportunities, as well as a wide variety of bird and plant life.

After visiting the falls, a 'Flight of Angels' helicopter journey is highly recommended to discover a different perspective of this natural wonder. Later, relax on a sunset Zambezi cruise looking out for wildlife including wild herds of elephants streaming to the river banks for their last drink and flocks of birds.

If staying on the Zimbabwean side, it is worth paying a visit to the historical Victoria Falls Hotel to enjoy high tea on its terrace, with spectacular views of the Victoria Falls Bridge and the spray from the falls below.
