Safaris in Africa Victoria Falls Travel Guide - experience one of the Natural Wonders of the World

victoria falls travel guide

The Victoria Falls topples over a sheer 100 metre (330 feet) drop. It forms a mile-wide (1,609 metre) curtain of water that is as spectacular as its reputation and more! It can be viewed from numerous viewpoints.

It is the widest curtain of falling water in the world, and during the months of February to April (after the rainy season), the volume of water cascades at over 500 000 cubic metres per second into the gorge below. This results into a spray that can be seen from more than 30km (20 miles) away and from there it derives its local African name - Mosi-Oa-Tunya - 'The Smoke that Thunders'. The Victoria Falls are fed by the steadily flowing Zambezi River that originates in the mountain regions between Angola and Zambia. This river reaches the Indian Ocean in Mozambique. The Zambezi River is 1,687 miles long (2,700 km) and is Africa's fourth largest river. See our Map of Victoria Falls for accommodation options.

the victoria falls - things to do

This is one of Africa's activity hotspots with something to for everyone, be it a relaxing cruise or an adrenaline-filled gorge swing! You won't have enough time to experience it all, so make sure you plan ahead, book for a number of days that suit your interests and choose what you plan to do before you get there. There are Victoria Falls Specialists who will gladly assist with your trip planning.

Here's a few of our favourite not-to-miss activities when visiting Victoria Falls!

Africa's Wildlife   Flight of Angels
experience victoria falls from an angel's perspective
Take a flight over the Victoria Falls by helicopter and enjoy this amazing natural wonder from a bird-eye view. It is a great way to appreciate the spectacular size of this waterfall and to see how it plummets almost a 100m over the edge into the gorge. You might even be luckily enough to spot a few animals along the banks, hippos in the river and elephants on the many islands. There are different flight options available.

Africa's Wildlife   White Water Rafting
take on the might of the zambezi river
There are not many activities as adventurous as a white water rafting trip down the Zambezi. You start just under the Victoria Falls and spend the day hitting rapid after rapid as you move through the gorge. The scenery is breathtaking, and just when you think it gets a bit too relaxed, the next rapid comes up. The adrenaline pumps as you prepare to go into the next wall of white water without getting washed out of your boat! There are full day and half day options available.

Africa's Wildlife   Sunset Cruise on the Zambezi River
relaxing on a sunset cruise along the upper zambezi
After a hard day of adventure activities, there's nothing better than to relax on a cruise boat and take in the beauty of the Zambezi River.... Experience the spectacular sights as the boat gently takes you upstream while sipping on an ice cold drink. Spot a fish eagle as it glides majestically over the river, or spot an elephant as it quenches its thirst on the banks of the Zambezi. Different options allow you to book out the boat as a group or join other travelers on the larger cruises.
