Victoria Falls Holidays
One of the seven wonders of the world and referred to by locals as "Mosi-oa-Tunya" (The Smoke that Thunders), Victoria Falls is certainly a sight to behold. Add the warm and welcoming smiles, the bright African sunshine, the wilderness and wildlife and you'll certainly fall in love with Zambia and Zimbabwe.
As jaw-dropping today as it was to David Livingstone in 1855, Victoria Falls straddles the borders of both Zambia and Zimbabwe and is, without doubt, a true blockbuster. Wider than Niagara and higher than Iguazu, Victoria Falls is the greatest curtain of falling water in the world.
The lion’s share of the falls are in Zimbabwe and it’s here that you’ll get the best idea of their sheer scale. Numerous vantage points run along the gorge inside Victoria Falls National Park including Devil’s Cataract, Danger Point and the show-stopping Main Falls. On the Zambian side, lookout points in Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park provide alternative perspectives. Cross the exhilarating Knife-Edge Bridge, watch the water thunder over the edge at Eastern Cataract or, follow the path to the river’s edge for a glimpse of Boiling Pot, a massive whirlpool.
Book a helicopter flight and take to the sky for a bird’s eye view over the falls; or enjoy a sundowner cruise on the Zambezi River watching for crocodiles, elephants and hippos wallowing in pools and lying on the river banks.
For a greater wildlife fix, consider spending a few days at Hwange National Park in Zimbabwe. Its rich variety of habitats provide fantastic game viewing opportunities.
