About Victoria Falls
Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe
ADD TO LIST
Victoria Falls cross into both Zambia and Zimbabwe, and each country has protected the surround regions with national parks. In Zambia, Victoria Falls are protected by Mosi-oa-Tunya, and in Zimbabwe, the Victoria Falls National Park. Within these parks are an incredible array of diverse wildlife.
The Zambzei River has carved through the landscape, creating numerous gorges from the First to the Fifth Gorge, as well as the Songwe Gorge and the Batoka Gorge. The adventurous may try a river rafting tour through the Gorges, or come up close through a scenic chartered plane.
from Johannesburg South Africa, fly to Victoria Falls. You may also fly from Johannesburg to Livingstone and then cross the border to Zimbabwe(just a few minutes). From Lusaka, travel by car or fly to Livingstone. View the falls from Livingstone or cross the border to Zimbabwe...

Best time to visit Vic Falls on the Zambia side:
During December - February the water levels are high and you end up soaked. Your view is limited because of the spray.
After the rainy season February - April is when you'll see the greatest flow of water - although it may be a little difficult to photograph the Falls up close without getting your camera wet.
The best time to visit Victoria Falls is between May - September when one can best enjoy the waterfall without having it totally obscured by its sprays. At the end of the dry season , October and November the Falls are at their least impressive, and this is also the time of year when temperatures remain uncomfortably hot throughout the day and night.

What an amazing place! It really is something that has to be seen to be believed. When I visited Vic Falls, I got absolutely drenched! Even my clothes under my raincoat were soaked (and it's a great rain coat that has always kept me dry, too!) because water started soaking up my pants and under my coat! We went during February and it was wet and hot. At that time of year don't bother even bringing a camera if you want to venture near the falls at all....it will get soaked too! I had an Olympus underwater camera and managed to get a few good shots, but the air was really misty. If you want to opt for a drier section (and not ruin your camera) there is a foot path closer to the bridge connecting Zambia to Zimbabwe that offers decent views of the falls and the Zambezi.

The Victoria Falls also known as Mosi-oa-Tunya or "the smoke that thunders" is one of the best waterfalls that I have seen. You can go down towards the falls on a bridge that connects Zambia and Zimbabwe - the two countries that play host to the falls. There is a fantastic safari park which has mainly herbivorous animals like the rhinoceros, elephants, giraffe, deer, monkeys, hippopotamus besides the wild boar and crocodiles which are the only carnivores. Unfortunately none of the big cats are out here!!! Nearby there is another great attraction a crocodile and snake park which is also a must see place for wildlife enthusiasts.

This huge waterfall borders Zimbabwe and Zambia. There are viewdecks on both borders. However, the Zimbabwe side is more magnificent as you have the full front and side view of the entire length of the waterfall. When you are in the Zambia side (Livingstone) you will have the side view mostly of the falls. This is really thundering waterfall. Best time to go is March-May when the entire length has water roaring down. I went October and i intend to go back (Annie lets really go here) and see the full grandeur of this natural wonder of the world!

Victoria Falls creates a breathtaking panorama earning its title as one of the natural wonders of the world. The pathways lead visitors close to the edge of the falls until they are drenched with the spray of the water. For adrenaline junkies the Livingston Bridge, which connects Zimbabwe and Zambia, offers those daring enough the chance to bungee jump from the world's highest bridge. The area surrounding the falls is a large tourist draw as people oftentimes take canoe safaris upriver to sight any animals that come close to the water.
