One of the great wonders of the world, this is the place where the Zambezi tumbles over a geological fault in a terrifying torrent and casts asunder anything in its way.
Sunshine on the clouds of spray creates gleaming rainbows above the dripping rainforest and whilst the views are spectacular from both sides of the border, the very best views are undoubtedly from the air. Unlike Livingstone on the Zambian side of the border, the town of Victoria Falls is a short walk from the falls themselves and plays host to an array of accommodation as well as extensive activity options.
Throughout the year you can find a variety of wildlife in the tributaries, as well as good birdlife. A visit to the Falls makes a great combination with safaris in Zimbabwe, Namibia, Botswana or Zambia.
