Victoria Falls Facts and Info


Essential Victoria Falls Travel Information


It's hard to accurately imagine the scale of the Victoria Falls, but when you witness the sprays created by unimaginable amounts of water tumbling downwards to create the world's largest curtain of falling water, you'll soon see how it got its original name; ‘Mosi-oa-Tunya’ – ‘The Smoke that Thunders’.

Getting to the Victoria Falls can be confusing as you can enter from either the Zambian (Livingstone) or Zimbawean (Victoria Falls Town) side. Take a look at the map and you'll see that the Zambezi river which leads to the Falls forms the boundary between Zimbabwe and Zambia. Your experience of the Falls will also depend on the time of year that you visit as the Falls vary in fullness seasonally — be sure to check your timing to avoid disappointment, although disappointment is rare in an area as spectacular as this.

The Victoria Falls is a safe and magical holiday destination and can easily be combined with a Big 5 safari or beach holiday. There are some excellent safari lodges on both sides of the Falls such as Sanctuary Sussi and Chuma Lodge, Tongabezi Safari Lodge, Chuma House and Matetsi Lodge. From these lodges, you'll be able to visit Chobe National Park and/or the Victoria Falls National Park as well as the Victoria Falls themselves, of course. Having personally visited the hotels and lodges in the Victoria Falls area, our consultants are here to give you expert, first-hand advice on how to optimise your time at Victoria Falls.
