Victoria Falls is home of the largest waterfall in the world. Livingstone has carved a niche for itself as the adrenaline capital of Southern Africa. Making use of the chaos that developed in neighboring Zimbabwe, Livingstone is a buzzing town with some awesome accommodation options, prime Zambezi River locations, and activities not for the faint hearted at the Victoria Falls.

Victoria Falls is a destination not to be missed with any African Vacation. A standalone destination if you only have a few days in Southern Africa, it also combines well with a South African Safari or various Botswana safari options. Often a day trip to Chobe completes your magic Victoria Falls Itinerary.

Nothing prepares you for the awe of Victoria Falls! A mile wide & 360 feet deep making it the largest curtain of water in the world. You can see the “smoke” rising off this curtain and hear the thunder as it plunges deep into the Zambezi Gorge from the Victoria Falls.

“The Smoke that Thunders” inspires today as it did when it was discovered by David Livingstone in 1855. With a choice of accommodation lining the Zambezi River there are family friendly options, safari lodges, hotels (including the Royal Livingstone & Zambezi Sun), romantic retreats, island retreats, accommodation close to the Falls or set slightly away for a more undisturbed Victoria Falls experience.

Activities at the Victoria Falls are endless in this adrenaline capital. To fully appreciate the might and scale of the Falls a helicopter or micro light flight is essential. White water rafting is a must at Victoria Falls if you are a water addict and want to experience the mighty Zambezi River. This activity operates during the low water months so it is a good idea to check with your consultant. Water levels do affect the scale of your view of the Victoria Falls. The best time to travel to the Victoria Falls is highlighted on our information and tips pages.
