Victoria Falls


One of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World, The Victoria Falls are one of the biggest and most renowned waterfalls in the world. At almost 2 kilometres in length and 103 metres deep, ‘the smoke that thunders’ can be heard from 40km away and seen from a staggering 50km. The Falls are located in Southern Zambia, in a cultural town called Livingstone, the country’s tourist capital.

The Victoria Falls, named by Scottish missionary and explorer Dr David Livingstone in 1855 after Queen Victoria of Britain, offer stunning views to visitors. During their peak after the rain season, the waterfalls drop 550,000 cubic metres of water per second.

Being the adventure capital of Zambia, there’s plenty of activities to get your blood pumping whilst admiring the spectacular surrounding landscape including bungee jumping, ziplining, tandem gorge swing, white water rafting, microlight and helicopter flights. Wanting to get your wildlife fix? Zambia’s smallest National Park, Mosi-oa-Tunya is nearby, home to Zambia’s only population of White Rhino.

Places to experience Victoria Falls

Livingstone

Lower Zambezi is still relatively undeveloped, with it’s beauty lying in its wilderness state. The diversity of animals is not as wide as the other big parks, but the opportunities to get close to game, wandering in and out of the Zambezi channels are spectacular.

Zambia's Other Experiences

Spa & Relaxation

There is no better place to enjoy beautiful settings that offer privacy and exclusivity for the ultimate relaxing time for guests. Many of Zambia's lodges offer a variety of relaxation activities from Yoga, health retreats and spa treatments.

Wildlife

Zambia is one of the best safari destinations in Africa, and most of the desirable animals are relatively easily seen. South Luangwa, Lower Zambezi and Kafue are especially good for leopard sightings, whereas wild dog and cheetah sightings are more rare.

Culture

With a total human population of 13 million, Zambia is sparsely populated with more than 70 ethnic groups, many of them Bantu-speaking. Zambia's ethnic diversity results in rich and colourful cultures, each upheld and celebrated uniquely in remembrance of their ancestral age.
