VICTORIA FALLS

VICTORIA FALLS

This majestic curtain of water is considered one of the most impressive waterfalls in the world!

This majestic curtain of water is considered one of the most impressive waterfalls in the world! It is roughly twice the height of North America’s Niagara Falls. The thunderous roar of Victoria Falls can be heard for miles around. The sheer force of the water drives a column of spray far into the air, drenching the edge of the Falls in a fine mist and giving rise to its traditional name, Mosi-oa-Tunya or ‘The Smoke That Thunders’.

The Falls is shared between Zambia and Zimbabwe, and provides a different experience at different times of the year in these two countries. We don’t recommend visiting The Falls at the end of the dry winter period―which is October through November. The water level is at its lowest and the weather is very hot and humid. Low water levels guarantee you’ll have panoramic views with no misty spray on both sides of The Falls, but the Zambian side, which is about one quarter of its width, may have dried up completely. All you will see is bare rock face. Water flow on the Zimbabwean side is permanent, but ebbs in volume with the seasons.

A special experience is to visit Victoria Falls when it is at full flow, coincident with taking in the peak safari season in nearby Chobe in Botswana, or Hwange in Zimbabwe. Some activities, like swimming in the Devil’s Pool and certain sections of white-water rapids, are also far too dangerous to undertake when the water is at its highest and fastest.

Chat to Tailored Ventures about what is most important to you in your trip to Victoria Falls, and we can include it in your itinerary.

For the adventure enthusiast, white-water rafting isn’t the only activity on offer here! Bungee jumping over the mighty Zambezi is very popular and a ‘must-do’ for the adrenaline junky! Other activities include a helicopter trip over the falls, day trips to the Chobe National Park in neighbouring country Botswana, tiger fishing, elephant encounters, walking tour of the falls, and sunset cruises on the Zambezi River.

Both Zimbabwe’s Victoria Falls and Zambia’s Livingstone offer an array of hotels and lodges. Whether you are looking for a hotel in town, or a secluded lodge tucked away on the banks of the Zambezi, we will guide you to the best ones for you, based on your requirements.

Victoria Falls is perfect for a honeymoon or family friendly itinerary. Why not tie this in with a safari in South Africa or Botswana?
