Victoria Falls & Kafue

Victoria Falls Holidays and Kafue Safaris: an Overview

The spray rising from the Victoria Falls can be seen from miles away, and at more than a mile wide, this is the largest curtain of water on the planet. Kafue National Park, Zambia's largest protected area, is easily accessible from Livingstone (the town by Victoria Falls) or Lusaka.

Isabel, Eleanor and Louise Fitzgerald are here to help give you the inside track.

Why we think you’ll love it

  • Because the local name for the falls - 'Mosi oa Tunya' (the smoke that thunders) is far more poetic
  • Kafue National Park is an 8,500 square mile wilderness, home to all the big cats, elephant, buffalo and hippo and more unusual species such as sable, roan, puku, oribi and lechwe.

Luxury Tours of Victoria Falls: the Detail

The activities that Original Travel offer around Victoria Falls are hugely diverse, and should keep even the most addicted adrenaline junkie happy.

Try bungee jumping from the Victoria Falls bridge, or a gorge swing, white-water rafting, boogie-boarding in the rapids, microlight flights over the Falls and even abseiling the gorge. We particularly recommend a visit to Livingstone Island in the middle of the river, and swimming in the natural pool just feet from the edge of the Falls. It is a hair-raising but thoroughly memorable experience.

More sedate pastimes include canoeing trips, exceptional bird and game viewing. And golf.

Original Highlight

Canoeing in Africa

There's lots to do in this region aside from the classic the helicopter tour above Victoria Falls. Favourites include visiting a local village, which is fascinating, or canoeing.
