Victoria Falls & Zambia

Victoria Falls and Zambia Holidays

Experience one of the natural wonders of the world when you visit Victoria Falls on the border of Zambia and Zimbabwe. Victoria Falls, also known as ‘Mosi-oa-Tunya' which translates as ‘the Smoke that Thunders’, is the largest sheet of falling water in the world. While you may find yourself staring in awe for hours at the Falls, there are numerous other activities to enjoy in the surrounding area. There are hiking trails (imagine the views), horse riding excursions, sunset cruises on the Zambezi River, game drives, canoeing...the list goes on and on.

Victoria Falls is best known as the ‘Africa's Adventure Capital’, and no wonder! You can enjoy bungee jumping over Batoka Gorge, bridge swinging and ziplining, white-water rafting, speed boating and a whole lot more. A Victoria Falls holiday is one full of excitement, adventure and adrenalin-pumping fun!

The Victoria Falls is located along the Zambezi River. The surrounding vegetation is lush and abundant with wildlife. Your trip would be incomplete without a visit to one of the nearby game reserves, or even a few days in neighbouring Chobe National Park just over the border in Botswana. Even a relaxing sunset cruise allows you to spot elephant and other wildlife on the banks, all while you sip on a delicious local cocktail.

Facts about travelling to Victoria Falls, Zambia

The best time to visit Victoria Falls in between February and May, this is directly after the rainy season and the water flowing will be at its greatest.

If you want to combine your Victoria Falls holiday with a safari holiday then the best time to enjoy both is a bit later, from June to August.

Victoria Falls is interesting geographically as it lies between Zimbabwe and Zambia.

Feast your eyes on a rare ‘moonbow’ when the sun sets and the moon is full. Light bouncing off the moon allows you to experience a rainbow at night.
