Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe

One of the natural wonders of the world, Victoria Falls is a majestic and breathtaking sight. It’s raging torrents fall into the Zambezi River’s impressive gorges far below. Situated right on the border between Zimbabwe and Zambia, the waterfall is spectacular any time of year. Also known as Mosi Oa Tunya, the name is used across the two countries, Zimbabwe and Zambia and it means “the smoke that thunders”. It’s fuller after the rainy season from March to May – but also has more spray.

This is the place for slow sunset cruises down the Zambezi River, white water rafting if you’re feeling adventurous, or exploring The Falls on a guided tour. The quaint town, Victoria Falls, is dotted with luxury lodges that make the most of the magnificent views. With plentiful restaurants, visitors are able to enjoy gourmet delights and wonderful landscapes of dreamy Zimbabwe. Victoria Falls is the gateway to exploring Zimbabwe’s most famous parks: Hwange National Park, Mana Pools and Lake Kariba (where you can experience a stay on a luxury houseboat).
