The magnificent Victoria Falls – or Mosi-oa-Tunya (the Mist that Thunders) – is located on the Zambezi River between Zambia and Zimbabwe. Being one of the largest falls on the planet, it is considered by some to be among the Seven Natural Wonders of the World.
There is a magic about the falls manifested in the towering column of spray, the thunder of the falling water, and tranquil lagoons upstream. Let us help you get there and experience it for yourself.
It is awesome splendour that will take your breath away and is a must for all to visit. Visitors can gaze at the mighty Zambezi as it flows, broad and placid, to the brink of a basalt lip seventeen hundred meters wide before taking a headlong plunge into the frothy chasm of the gorge below. This is the world’s largest sheet of falling water, yet although its fame has spread far and wide; the site has been tastefully preserved so that tourists do not spoil the magic of the very place they have come to see. There is far more to do at Victoria Falls than to marvel at the Falls themselves; upstream, the Zambezi plays host to the famous ‘sundowners’ cruises, excursions onto the river to watch the local wildlife while gently sipping a glass of champagne and partaking of a light snack. But once the river has taken its plunge, there is quite a different experience to be had…
A visit to Victoria Falls is easily combined with a safari experience in Botswana
