Victoria Falls is known locally as “Mosi-oa-Tunya”, which translates to the “Smoke that Thunders”. And this name adequately describes what you will see here! Picture thundering falls with billowing mist resembling smoke and bejewelled with rainbows.

Whether you're someone who prefers to take things easy on holiday or you want activities to get that adrenaline rush, we've got you sorted. There's something for everyone – from peaceful boat cruises, a Victoria Falls helicopter tour, white water rafting, game drives, and much, much more.  
 

Victoria Falls: Zimbabwe or Zambia?

This is a very common question we get, but the reality is that it's really up to you as both sides offer incredible experiences! Here is an overview to help you decide. Of course we can always include both sides in your itinerary. 

Zimbabwe

Around two-thirds of Victoria Falls can be seen in Zimbabwe, so if you want to take full advantage of all the water-based activities, then this is for you. It also has more expansive viewpoints from which to admire the falls, like Main Falls and Rainbow Falls. The local Victoria Falls Town has plenty of luxury accommodation options that offer easy access to the Falls' majesty. 

Zimbabwe is good year-round, even though the water levels do fluctuate. It's also known for the best game viewing on safari when compared with Zambia. 

Zimbabwe does not have access to Livingstone Island and Devil's Pool, but you can take a day trip to Zambia to see them.  

Zambia

This side of the Falls is home to the well-known Devil's Pool – nature's most thrilling infinity pool, ideal for any daredevil (seasonal). Some activities are also reserved for this side of the Falls, such as visiting the famous Livingstone Island where the explorer David Livingstone first caught sight of the thundering waterfall. 

Zambia is known as the birthplace of the walking safari, so definitely something to look forward to here.

Our Victoria Falls tours FAQs

What activities should I include in my Victoria Falls tour?

The list of activities we can include on your Victoria Falls safari tour is truly endless!

If you want to experience why Victoria Falls is known as the adventure capital, you can take your pick from adrenaline-fueled activities around every corner. For example, you can swim in Devil's Pool (seasonal), gorge swinging, go white water rafting, book a canopy tour, bungee jumping, micro lighting, and more. The Victoria Falls helicopter tours and flips are also something everyone should experience! 

If you prefer to take things easy, there are plenty of dinner and sundowner boat cruises and canoe safaris on the Zambezi River to give you a different perspective of the Falls. Although Victoria Falls is best known for being a water playground, it also offers safari experiences like game drives, bird watching, horse riding, bike tours, and more. 

You can even take a safari day-trip to Chobe National Park in Botswana or Hwange National Parks in Zimbabwe

Those who love their dose of local history and culture can go on local township tours, shop local arts and crafts, and meet the locals.

Is Victoria Falls worth visiting?

Absolutely! There's a reason why it's on nearly all of our guests' bucket lists! It also did not go unnoticed globally, with prestigious titles such as UNESCO World Heritage Site and listed as one of the 7 Natural Wonders of the World.
