Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe


Victoria Falls town lies on the southern bank of the Zambezi River at the eastern end of the Victoria Falls. It is a lovely tourist town which is easy to explore on foot and offers a wide range of adventure vacation activities from the challenge of white water rafting and bungi jumping, to the awe-inspiring elephant back African safaris and sunset cruises.


The Victoria Falls are one of the Seven Wonders of the World and is the largest sheet of falling water on earth - a spellbinding and mesmerizing spectacle. The sheer mass of water cascading down the 100m drop across nearly 2km makes a thunderous roar and creates a magnificent spray of water that can be seen for miles - hence the local African name 'mosi oa tunya' meaning 'the smoke that thunders'.


Access to Victoria Falls is within easy walking distance from the town center. Water flow over the falls varies throughout the year. The river's annual flood season is February to May when the spray can reach a height of over 400m, this is spectacular from above but it makes it very difficult to see the falls at ground level as it is under a heavy shower/mist. Water levels start dropping in August and are at their lowest October - December when much of the rocky face becomes dry. At times of low water, the falls are best viewed from the Zimbabwe side or from Livingstone Island. Seeing the spectacular falls is a wonderful addition to any African safari adventure.
