Words frequently fail to capture the grandeur of Victoria Falls, but if you were to look for an apt description, you probably wouldn’t find better than its Kololo name ‘Mosi-oa-Tunya’, which roughly translates to ‘the smoke that thunders’. Spanning nearly two kilometres and dropping about 108 metres, this UNESCO Natural World Heritage Site is the largest waterfall in the world—thanks to the sheer volume of water cascading over its crags every minute.
Situated almost halfway along the Zambezi River and straddling two countries, Victoria Falls and its surrounds offers travellers a range of exciting experiences that will thrill even the most hardened adrenaline junkie. From bungee jumping to white water rafting, one’s chances of getting bored are close to zero. Other thrilling experiences include Lunar Rainbow Tours, cruises along the Zambezi, dips in the notorious Devil's Pool, and micro-flight trips to show guests the Falls from above.
While Victoria Falls is a fantastic destination all year round, different seasons offer vastly different experiences. During the rainy season (from December to March), the Zambezi’s water is at its highest and the Falls are at their most dramatic. The high water volume, however, also drapes the Falls in a cloud of spray—which makes sightseeing a little bit trickier, though no one seems to mind meandering around this misty realm. During the dry seasons (from April to October) when the water is lower, one can get a better view of its dramatic precipices.
