Victoria Falls
One of Africa’s greatest legends, Victoria Falls is a magnificent hundred metre waterfall which attracts both adventurers and soul searchers. Nicknamed the smoke that thunders, it’s rising mist is a sight to behold.

Victoria Falls

A World Heritage site and the largest curtain of water in the world, Victoria Falls sits on the border of Zimbabwe and Zambia. On the Zimbabwean side winding paths through the rainforest reveal extensive views of the falls, while across in Zambia the knife edge bridge takes you close to the cascading water and whirlpool at the base of the falls. Both sides are well worth a visit and are relatively easy to travel between.

The two places we love the most are Tongabezi and The Victoria Falls Hotel, distinctly different yet equally special. Tongabezi is an award-winning, romantic hideaway lodge on the banks of the Zambezi River, and The Victoria Falls Hotel is Zimbabwe’s oldest luxury colonial hotel.

Living up to its name of the adventure capital of Southern Africa there are a myriad of activities to choose from in this region which is surrounded by remarkable safari destinations and abundant natural life. Visit Devil's Pool, bungy jump, white water raft, tiger fish or take a helicopter flip over the falls! For those who aren’t into adrenalin-fuelled activities you can have high tea at The Victoria Falls Hotel, lunch at the Lookout Café or enjoy a sunset cruise on the Zambezi.

Whether it is adrenalin or soul searching you’re after, a trip to Victoria Falls is a must on your travel list!


Caroline's Hot Tips

Spend two to three nights at Vic Falls to enjoy a wide range of activities.

Although an all-round destination, June to September is the best time to visit.

Combine the falls region with a safari in Zambia, Zimbabwe, Botswana or South Africa, all with easy flight access.

During full moon we suggest a special evening tour of Vic Falls! It's spectacular to say the least!

Adrenaline junkies must give bungy jumping a go!
