About Victoria Falls

Information

The majestic Victoria Falls, located on the border between Zambia and Zimbabwe is one of the world’s largest waterfalls, with a width of 1,708 m (5,604 ft). Affectionately known to the locals as Maso-a-tunya (the smoke that thunders), Victoria Falls is one of the seven natural wonders of the world, and one of the most visited sites in Southern Africa.

If you are feeling a little daring, you can try bungee jumping off the Victoria Falls Bridge that crosses over the Zambezi River. It is exhilarating, and the entire experience can be captured on camera for your travel journal. But that is just the start of the adventure. Book an overflight in an aircraft or helicopter and see the falls or wildlife from above. Or book a cruise on the Zambezi River and see the crocodiles and hippopotamus up close and personal.  There are also game drives through Victoria Falls National Park or nearby wildlife sanctuaries. Your game ranger will show you the best sites and share their knowledge of the local flora and fauna, birdlife and wildlife.
