Africa’s Most Remarkable Natural Wonder
The Victoria Falls constitutes one of the most spectacular natural wonders of the world and is a must-visit site for any safari traveler. The local people call it ``Mosi-oa-Tunya``, meaning “the smoke that thunders” with the Zambezi River, its epic waterfall and the Batoka Gorge forming the border between the countries of Zimbabwe and Zambia. The Victoria Falls is 1 708 meters wide, making it the largest curtain of water in the world. The town of Victoria Falls offers a range of luxury safari accommodation, dining and shopping options for the discerning traveler. Besides the Falls, the Zambezi River and the Zambezi National Park near the Falls offers visitors a range of adrenaline and leisure-based safari activities, which can be booked with your luxury safari travel expert.
Explore the magical Victoria Falls Rainforest
The Victoria Falls Rainforest is the gateway to the Victoria Falls. During a morning or afternoon guided tour guests will be accompanied through the rainforest, on the edge of the Falls, while your guide provides you with a brief history of the Falls as well as detailing the flora, fauna and other points of interest. During the two to three-hour tour you will make your way along the designated path which takes you to 16 viewpoints along the edge, each offering a different view and incredible photographic opportunities. The Victoria Falls is in its peak flow between March and June. The best time to visit the Falls for good views without too much spray is between June and September. From September the Falls start drying up, however they are never completely dry on the Zimbabwean side.
Cruise on the Majestic Zambezi River at Sunset
The majestic Zambezi River offers guests the opportunity to enjoy a range of river-based safari activities. One of the best ways to enjoy the river and to end a busy day is to book an afternoon sunset cruise. These cruises depart late afternoon and offer complimentary snacks and drinks while you enjoy the beautiful scenery along the way. You will see a range of wonderful wildlife along the riverbanks, including elephant, crocodiles, hippos, and a range of water birds. For a different kind of river safari experience, you can also book a lunch or dinner river cruise with us.
