The name alone conjures up visions of exploration and adventure. David Livingstone "discovered" the Falls in 1855 and named them after Queen Victoria but its other name, Mosi oa Tunya (the smoke that thunders), is perhaps more evocative.

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

Why we think you’ll love it

  • Not only are the Falls the most impressive sight to witness, there are a whole host of other fun adrenalin activities on offer. For those that are feeling adventurous, nothing beats microlighting

Our guide to holidays in Victoria Falls

Almost exactly halfway along the Zambezi River's 2700 km journey to the Indian Ocean the spray from the huge sheet of water as it plunges over 108 metres into the gorge below can be seen from 30 miles away. Said to be the largest waterfall in the world, The Victoria Falls are considered to be one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the world and the National Park is a World Heritage site.

The area is the home of a huge variety of adrenaline activities from heli flips (Flight of Angels) over the Falls, white water rafting, microlighting and boogie boarding but if you want slightly less excitement there are rather more gentle river cruises and game viewing, cultural visits, horse and elephant trails. The iconic Victoria Falls Hotel, otherwise known as the "grand old lady of the Falls", is one of the places to stay in Southern Africa and the perfect place to contemplate the Falls, which are visible from the hotel and only a ten minute walk away along their private pathway.

Victoria Falls is the perfect starting point for a Southern African safari; from here you can begin a trip through Zimbabwe incorporating Hwange and Mana Pools or hop across the border into Zambia or Botswana or continue your journey in South Africa or Mozambique.


A note on price

Zimbabwe is currently offering incredible value for money compared to its neighbours in Zambia and Botswana, and the option for some internal road transfers instead of all internal flights can help keep costs down. Holidays in Zimbabwe start from £4,500 per person at the cheaper end of the spectrum, including flights, but for a more elaborate itinerary exploring some remote regions, £8,000 per person is the kind of price you'd expect to pay.
