Why

One of the world’s most loved iconic landmarks and natural wonders, Victoria Falls is regarded as the largest waterfall in the world due to it’s combined 1,7 metres width and 108 metres height. The Falls roars like thunder as the water belts down over the edge and creates a spray that resembles a mist of smoke, heeding the name Mosi-oa-Tunya which translates to “The Smoke that Thunders”.

Victoria Falls can be viewed from both Zambia and Zimbabwe, and both regions offer an incredible selection of activities, including scenic helicopter flights over the falls, river cruises, white water rafting, and day trips to the world-renowned Chobe National Park.

Zambia has the added attraction of Livingstone Island where those daring enough can swim on the edge of the Falls.

When

With mild temperatures, virtually no rain and a low malaria risk, the dry May to October winter season is generally seen as the best time to visit Zimbabwe for a safari, although it is important to note that September and October are extremely hot and dry months.

The best time to travel to Victoria Falls, on the other hand, is at the end of the summer rainy season when the falls are in full flood with April and May offering the most dramatic views.

August to December is the low water season and is regarded as the best time to go white-water rafting in Victoria Falls - the volume and speed of the water is reduced and the rapids are more exposed.

Where

Zimbabwe is a country known for its dramatic landscapes and diverse wildlife and is, therefore, the perfect destination for travelers looking for a true adventure. The top attraction is the awe-inspiring Victoria Falls which is located within the Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park. Internationally recognized as one of the “Seven Wonders Of The World”, Victoria Falls is a spectacular sight with never-ending rainbows and the greatest falling curtain of water. The sheer force of the Falls sounds like thunder and the spray of water looks like smoke, ringing true to its name “The Smoke that Thunders”.  

Zimbabwe is home to two game reserves that offer phenomenal safari experiences.

Mana Pools is in the far north of Zimbabwe and is known for its large populations of elephants, hippos and Nile crocodiles that congregate around the pools which hold water all year round. Hwange is in west Zimbabwe and its sprawling grasslands and mopane woods are home to large elephant herds, lions and African wild dogs.

Explore Lake Kariba, which is the world's largest man-made lake offering spectacular views, stunning sunsets, great fishing, boating opportunities, and various water sports.
