Victoria Falls Holiday Destination

When you plan your first visit to Zambia or Zimbabwe – envisage your very first glimpse of the literally breath-taking Victoria Falls. If there were no other reason to visit Zambia and Zimbabwe, the legendary Victoria Falls would be reason enough. Victoria Falls presents a spectacular sight of awe-inspiring beauty and grandeur on the Zambezi River, forming the border between Zambia and Zimbabwe. Locals referred to the Falls as ‘Mosi-oa-Tunya’ – ‘The Smoke that Thunders’; Victoria Falls is a sight you won’t easily forget and that is guaranteed.

Best view – Zimbabwe or Zambia?

About three quarters of Victoria Falls lies within Zimbabwe and it has the lion’s share of viewpoints too. Victoria Falls is a town in western Zimbabwe and a gateway to the massive waterfall of the same name. Here, the Zambezi River plummets over a cliff and into the Boiling Pot before flowing through a series of gorges. The Devil’s Pool, a natural infinity pool, is on the edge of a sheer drop. Spanning the river is 1905 Victoria Falls Bridge.

To get exceptionally close to the cascades of water, however, you need to visit the Zambian side of the Falls. Feel your heart race during the drenching crossing of the Knife-Edge Bridge or, if there’s less water, take the steep footpath down to the Boiling Pot – a huge whirlpool at the base of the Falls. You can also stand upstream and watch the river rush over the edge.

A highlight of any trip is the romantic sundowner cruise above Victoria Falls, viewing crocodiles and hippos wallowing in pools and lying on the banks. You may of course prefer a bird’s eye-view of the Falls, by helicopter or microlight.
