Victoria Falls

Victoria Falls Holidays


Victoria Falls is located on the border between Zambia and Zimbabwe and this immense mass of water is a sight to behold. The area also boasts numerous activities, as shown below, and all are easily accessible from both Livingstone and Victoria Falls Town hotels. The full power of the falls can be experienced from March to May; after this the floods abate though the view continues to be spectacular. At its lowest, around November to December, the falls become little rivulets running over the edge; the impressive cliffs that form the falls and the magnitude of the abyss can be fully appreciated at this time.

  • WHERE TO GO IN VICTORIA FALLS

    Situated on the southern banks of the Zambezi River, the town of Victoria Falls is bustling and atmospheric with plenty of bars, cafés and restaurants, as well as traditional handicraft shops. Choosing to stay on the Zimbabwean side allows access to 75% of the falls themselves with a network of 16 awe-inspiring viewpoints set amongst the rainforest, all within walking distance of the town. Even at the height of the dry season there is usually some flow visible from the Zimbabwean side, while the pristine wilderness of Zambezi National Park is also close by.

    Staying on the Zambian side of the falls offers a selection of spectacular accommodation options, from the historic Royal Livingstone Hotel by Anantara to the luxurious riverside Sanctuary Sussi & Chuma. Although there are fewer viewing points on this side, you will be rewarded with wonderful views of the length of the falls, of Victoria Falls Bridge and of Batoka Gorge. Bear in mind that at the height of the dry season, the water in the Zambian section can dry up completely leaving a rugged rock face. The Zambian side also offers easy access to Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park – home to a variety of birdlife, herds of elephant, giraffe and pods of hippo.
