Victoria Falls, Livingstone

The Victoria Falls one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World offers breath-taking views that are almost too spectacular and majestic to describe.

There’s a wide choice of good accommodation and lots of optional activities that can easily be added on, before or after any safari trip within Zambia, as well as in Zimbabwe, Botswana, even north-eastern Namibia.

Unique and popular activities and attractions on both the Zambia and Zimbabwe side including Zambezi River White Water rafting on the best river rapids, Swimming at Livingstone island, Helicopter flights over the Falls, adrenaline activities such as Bungee jumping and River cruises. Boat trips and game drives in the surrounding areas afford the opportunity to see sightings of most of the common antelope, as well as giraffe, buffalo and elephant.

The Victoria Falls has an interesting small rain-forest with plant species rarely found elsewhere in Zimbabwe or Zambia. These plants are sustained by the clouds of spray which blanket the immediate vicinity of the Falls.

The Falls never seem the same twice, so try to visit several times under different light conditions – including by moonlight when the waters seem to blend into one smooth mass that appears frozen over the rocks.

The flow and hence the spray is greatest just after the end of the rainy season – around March or April depending upon the rains. It then decreases gradually until about December when the rains in western Zambia will start to replenish the river.

During low water a light raincoat (available for rent on site) is very useful for wandering between the viewpoints on the Zimbabwean side though it’s not necessary on Zambia Side. However in high water a raincoat is largely ineffective as the spray blows all around and soaks you in seconds.

The Zambian and Zimbabwean sides offer very different views of the falls, so if you have time it’s well worth visiting both sides to fully appreciate the whole waterfall.
