Victoria Falls

One of the greatest attractions in Africa and one of the most spectacular waterfalls in the world, Victoria Falls is located on the Zambezi River, the fourth largest river in Africa, which forms the border between Zambia and Zimbabwe.
The noise of Victoria Falls can be heard from a distance of 25 miles (40 kilometres), while the spray and mist from the falling water is rising to a height of over 1,200 ft (400 meters) and can be seen from a distance of 34 miles (50 kilometres). No wonder that the local tribes used to call the waterfall Mosi-o-Tunya or “the smoke that thunders”.
Victoria Falls is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and the citizens of both Zambia and Zimbabwe no longer have fear of the “the smoke that thunders”, and are successfully developing the tourism on both sides of the river.
The water level varies throughout the year; it is at its peak in April, at the end of the rainy season when on average 500 million litres of water flow and it is at its lowest level in October and early November.
During the dry season the water level in the Zambezi River drops sharply, and it becomes possible to walk through some parts of the waterfall. However, during the rest of the year Victoria Falls is a roaring machine that amazes you with its power.
Zimbabwe has most of the best views, especially in the drier months. Zambia has most of the best lodges. One special vantage point in Zambia is across the Knife-edge Bridge, where you can have the finest view of the Eastern Cataract and the Main Falls as well as the Boiling Pot, where the river turns and heads down the Batoka Gorge. Other vantage points include the Falls Bridge, Devils Pool (where it is possible to swim on the edge of the falls!) and the Lookout Tree, both of which command panoramic views across the Main Falls.
Other activities in this area include:
Flights over the Falls – by helicopter or microlight
White Water Rafting
Kayaking
Bungy Jumping
Safari
Village volunteering – on the Zambian side is where our main volunteering projects are located
