Victoria Falls

Victoria Falls is one of nature's greatest spectacles, and one of the few attractions that exceeds even the wildest expectations of its visitors. The town itself, referred to locally simply as 'Vic Falls', straddles the banks of the Zambezi River, in Zimbabwe's Matabeleland North province. It is a pleasant place from which to base oneself, home to a number of hotels and lodges, a couple of good restaurants and some great bars to enjoy.

Known as both an adventure centre and romantic getaway, there is an excellent selection of things to see and do in Victoria Falls, from walking to the viewpoints that run the length of the falls to white-water rafting and bungee jumping. There are canoe trips, river cruises, safaris and fishing trips available in Vic Falls, as well as first-rate national parks to visit nearby. A day-trip across the border into Zambia is also well worth doing.

There are buses, trains and airlines that travel to Vic Falls and, once there, the town is easily walkable but also has plenty of minibus and regular taxis available for visitors to use. A popular holiday destination since the 1930s, Vic Falls is a must on any African travel itinerary.
