Get to Know Victoria Falls
Africa’s most impressive waterfall leaves all who gaze upon it in mystified awe, but there’s much more to it than spectacular scenery.
The waterfall – especially when the river’s water levels rise between January and June – is immense and impressive. Still, the Zimbabwean town that shares the falls’ name is a great destination to explore.
With many of its hotels strung out along the Upper Zambezi, a stone’s throw above the Falls, Victoria Falls town has developed close to ‘the smoke that thunders,’ as it’s locally known.
This makes it considerably easier for guests to access the waterfall on the Zimbabwean side than from the Zambian town of Livingstone. Furthermore, with its rainforest trails and numerous viewpoints, the tiny Victoria Falls National Park provides unrivaled opportunities to view the multiple falls that constitute this extraordinary natural spectacle.
