Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe

One of the natural wonders of the world, Victoria Falls is a majestic and breathtaking sight. It’s raging torrents fall into the Zambezi River’s impressive gorges far below. This is the place for slow sunset cruises down the Zambezi River, white water rafting if you’re feeling adventurous, or exploring The Falls on a guided tour. Situated right on the border between Zimbabwe and Zambia, the waterfall is spectacular any time of year. It’s fuller after the rainy season from March to May – but also has more spray.

The quaint town, Victoria Falls, is dotted with luxury lodges that make the most of the magnificent views. With plentiful restaurants, visitors are able to enjoy gourmet delights and wonderful landscapes of dreamy Zimbabwe.
