Solo holiday in Victoria Falls

Victoria Falls is a perfect destination for solo travellers, whether you choose to stay in either Zambia or Zimbabwe. Both Livingstone and Victoria Falls town are well-set up for tourism and are easy to travel to, book lodging and organise activities. There are plenty of opportunities to meet other travellers in the guesthouses, hotels and in bars and restaurants in town, and many activities in the area, such as white-water rafting, and sunset river cruises, are done in groups, so you’ll be able to join up with other people for adventurous fun. There’s lots to do on your own, such as explore the falls and go for game drives in the national parks on each side of the border, but just about everything in the area can also be done with a guide.

Enjoy a peaceful sunset dinner for one

Highlights for solo travellers include watching the sunrise over Victoria Falls and catching the lunar rainbow reflected in the mist on full moon nights, flying above the falls in a helicopter or microlight, bungee jumping more than 100 metres down into the Batoka Gorge, getting soaked on a wild white-water rafting ride and tackling rapids head-first on a bodyboard, fishing for toothsome tiger fish, spotting wildlife on a canoeing trip on the Zambezi or from the back of a horse, zip lining through the rainforest canopy, swinging across the gorge and sipping cocktails on a sunset cruise on the river.

Both Victoria Falls and Livingstone are safe, tourist-friendly towns and solo female travellers should encounter no problems – although it’s not advisable to walk on your own through the towns at night.
