Solo Holiday in Victoria Falls

Safari Enquiry

Victoria Falls is a perfect destination for solo travelers, 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 travelers in the guesthouses, hotels and in bars and restaurants in town. 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.

Highlights for solo travelers include watching the sunrise over Victoria Falls, catching the lunar rainbow on full moon nights, flying above the falls in a helicopter or microlight and bungee jumping more than 100m (328ft) down into the Batoka Gorge.

Then there’s getting soaked on a whitewater rafting ride, tackling rapids head-first on a bodyboard, fishing for toothsome Tigerfish, spotting wildlife on a canoeing trip (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 travelers should encounter no problems, although it’s not advisable to walk on your own through the towns at night.
