Overview

Victoria Falls presents a spectacular sight of awe-inspiring beauty and grandeur on the Zambezi River, forming the border between Zambia and Zimbabwe. It was described by the Kololo tribe living in the area in the 1800’s as ‘Mosi-oa-Tunya’ – ‘The Smoke that Thunders’. In more modern terms Victoria Falls is known as the greatest curtain of falling water in the world. Columns of spray can be seen from miles away as, at the height of the rainy season, more than five hundred million cubic meters of water per minute plummet over the edge, over a width of nearly two kilometres, into a gorge over one hundred meters below. The wide, basalt cliff over which the falls thunder, transforms the Zambezi from a placid river into a ferocious torrent cutting through a series of dramatic gorges. Vantage points include the Falls Bridge, Devils Pool and the Lookout Tree, all which command panoramic views across the Main Falls. Various accommodation options located on the banks of the Zambezi River provide a unique accommodation experience one will never forget. Let us make this "Bucket List" item dream come true by contacting one of our specialist safari consultants to assist you with the detailed planning of your holiday.
