Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe

'The Smoke that Thunders' also borders Zambia and is known as the greatest curtain of falling water in the world.

Victoria Falls is known as the greatest curtain of falling water in the world. Locally known as ‘Mosi-oa-Tunya’ – The Smoke that Thunders, Victoria Falls borders Zambia and Zimbabwe. Columns of spray can be seen and felt from miles away as 546 million cubic meters of water per minute plummet over the edge into a deep gorge – over 100 meters below. The spray flowing above the falls at Victoria Falls can sometimes be seen over 5 km away!

Victoria Falls thunders over the wide basalt cliff, transforming the Zambezi River into a force which cuts through a series of gorges. The power of the water being channelled into a narrow gorge creates a virtual ‘rain forest’ as the mist gathers to drench the surrounding trees and vegetation. On the Zimbabwean side of Victoria Falls lies a protected National Park that is home to a variety of wildlife including: elephants, buffalos, giraffes, zebras and antelope as well as many crocodiles and hippos living in the upstream areas of the Zambezi River.

​​Of the many things to see and do in this beautiful area, we recommend the following activities: white water rafting, bungee jumping, horseback riding, jet boating, river safaris, and art safaris in an outdoor studio while observing wildlife.
