Welcome to Victoria Falls
Located on the Zambezi River in Africawhere Zambia meets Zimbabwe—and known locally as Mosi-oa-Tunya, or "the smoke that thunders"—Victoria Falls takes pride of place as one of the largest waterfalls in the world. Attracting visitors from across the globe keen to admire the cascading torrent up-close, this UNESCO World Heritage Site has been flowing for more than 100,000 years, and it continues to shape the surrounding landscape. Fittingly for a landmark of this magnitude, there are plenty of ways to see the falls. Thrill-seekers can tackle the raging white-water currents on a rafting adventure, take to the skies on a helicopter sightseeing flight, or leap into the void and swing through the mist on a bungee jump. Many of Victoria Falls' more relaxing travel options take visitors away from the falls themselves, to where native wildlife roams. Nature-lovers can take a single or multiday trip and spot crocodiles, elephants, and hippos in the Chobe National Park and Hwange National Park. Meanwhile, canoe safaris and sunset cruises offer spectacular views over the open wilderness from the mighty Zambezi River. And if you're looking for a true taste of African culture, you can book an experience with a local family to enjoy a traditional African lunch in their home.
