Victoria Falls safaris, tours & holiday packages
The top natural wonder in the world
Africa's most impressive waterfall leaves all who gaze upon it in mystified awe, but there's much more than spectacular scenic beauty to enthral visitors to Victoria Falls
The town of Victoria Falls is to Zimbabwe as Hong Kong is to China ... a seemingly autonomous and vibrant enclave that boasts everything a traveller to southern Africa could wish for. The waterfall – especially when the river's water levels rise between January and June – is immense and description-defyingly impressive, but the Zimbabwean town that shares the falls' name is in itself a great destination to explore.
With many of its hotels strung out along the Upper Zambezi, a stone's throw above the Falls, Vic Falls town has developed in close proximity to 'the smoke that thunders'. This makes it considerably easier for guests to access the waterfall on the Zimbabwean side than from the Zambian town of Livingstone. Furthermore, the tiny Victoria Falls National Park, with its rainforest trails and numerous viewpoints, provides unrivalled opportunities to view the multiple falls that together constitute this extraordinary natural spectacle.

More on Victoria Falls holidays
Victoria Falls town also adjoins the larger Zambezi National Park, giving visitors the opportunity to go on game drives where they stand a good chance of seeing elephants, buffaloes and a wide range of general game. Lions, leopards and African wild dogs also occur within the reserve.
The town itself contains all the facilities a traveller could desire. Every taste and budget is catered for with lodging options ranging from backpacker establishments to luxury lodges, big hotels and casinos. Restaurants and bars are also plentiful, while sundowner boat cruises on the Zambezi River above the Falls are an institution.
Few visitors to Vic Falls are able to resist being tempted by at least one of the wide range of adventure sports on offer. Whether it's rafting, riverboarding, bungee jumping or the Flight of the Angels helicopter ride over the Falls, it would feel almost wrong to visit this action-packed town without sampling a couple of its many pulse-racing pursuits.
