Victoria Falls (Zimbabwe)

Zimbabwe Victoria Falls holidays

Introduction

Victoria Falls in western Zimbabwe is the gateway to the waterfall that shares its name, straddling the border with Zambia.

In fact, to see the entire length of the largest waterfall in the world, you would need to enter via two gates, one in each country. The Victoria Falls Bridge is both the border and the connection between the two. The views are spectacular from wherever you are – as the Zambezi River gushes over the sheer drop, thousands of droplets create a gentle spray that shimmers in the sun.

On the Zimbabwe side of the falls, the Zambezi National Park, together with Victoria Falls National Park, covers an area of 56,000 hectares. Incredible wildlife including elephant, lion, buffalo and leopard can be seen here, and even the elusive white rhino.

It's worth noting that 75% of the Falls are viewable from Zimbabwe and 25% from Zambia. However, the Zambia section of Victoria Falls, within Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park, is well worth seeing. Alternatively, scenic helicopter flights are a great way to get a sense of the vastness of it all.
