Victoria Falls,
the adventure capital of Africa!

Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe, offers an all-encompassing experience for any traveller. The combination of Africa’s finest wildlife, birdlife, culture and history, as well as the amazing activities in Victoria Falls, make this a must-see destination. And, of course, as one of the seven natural Wonders of the World, the actual Victoria Falls are a sight to behold. The natural rainforest on the Zimbabwean side of the falls is a unique habitat to over 400 plant species, numerous bird species and small antelope and primates.

This charming town is located on the banks of the Zambezi River, one of the most fascinating rivers in Africa. The Zambezi traverses a wide variety of landscapes along its lengthy journey and is a true gem of the African continent. As the fourth largest river in Africa, its total catchment covers about 1 390 000km² and is approximately 2700km long. On its way to the Indian Ocean, the Zambezi flows through six countries in total: Zambia, Angola, Namibia, Botswana, Zimbabwe, and Mozambique. It spends the most amount of time in Zambia, and the least in Botswana. The river forms the border of Zambia and Namibia, Zambia and Botswana, and Zambia and Zimbabwe.

The famous Victoria Falls Bridge spans the Zambezi River and connects Zambia and Zimbabwe. The impressive Hwange National Park, another wildlife paradise, is only 180km from Victoria Falls. The border with Botswana lies just 88km away and is accessible as a day trip; the Kazungula border post in Botswana is near the only spot on earth where four countries meet at one point (Zimbabwe, Zambia, Botswana and the Caprivi Strip of Namibia).

The adventure activities in and around Victoria Falls make for incredibly memorable travel experiences; choose from nature-based activities, cultural trips or the exhilarating options of bungee jumping and white-water rafting. The Victoria Falls National Park is filled with all the magnificent African wildlife, including elephant, lion, buffalo, leopard and rhino. A sunset cruise along the Zambezi River is exceedingly popular and is a perfect way to cap off any day spent in Victoria Falls.
