Visit Victoria Falls

The crashing deluge of the mighty Zambezi as it spectacularly plunges over the Victoria Falls is one of Africas most awe-inspiring and iconic sights. We think that the Falls are best seen from the Zimbabwean side and when you are standing close to the worlds greatest mass of falling water and enjoying the sight of double rainbows, you won’t feel short-changed.

The clearest views are from July to March when the spray isn’t as thick and you can meander through the stunning rainforest on to 16 viewpoints along the gorge-edge, including one above the thundering Devil’s cataract (named by missionaries who witnessed tribes sacrificing beasts to the rainbow god).
Known by its African name, Mosi-ay-Tunya (the smoke that thunders), the Falls are now linked by dozens of daily flights and holds a reputation for being the adrenaline centre of Africa with bungee jumping, white water rafting and helicopter flights that drop right into the gorge.

Jen & George

We were bundled into a vehicle and dashed off to see a leopard within the first 30 minutes of arriving; it was an AWESOME start. Our guide completely made the entire experience. He was an exceptional birder and his best party trick was to point out the bird and then tell us the exact page we could find it in our book. We combined Zimbabwe with Mozambique, and our beach hotel felt like a complete hidden gem. The sand is like ‘moon dust’ and the hospitality and food were fantastic.
