Set your gaze upon Victoria Falls, the largest falls in the world. The waterfall is named in honor of Queen Victoria of Britain by a Scottish missionary, who perceived his discovery only as an obstacle to his preaching of Christianity to the whole of the African continent. Also called Mosi-oa-Tunya, "the smoke that thunders," by the local people, the falls extend 1,708 m (5,604 ft) across and 108 m (354 ft) in height. See the columns of spray from miles away plunging to the gorge below. To reach the falls you have to trek a road through the forest, so wear appropriate shoes. PutVictoria Falls into our Livingstone route builder app and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • Wow!! Must see this world wonder! "The mist that thunders". Awe inspiring. Zimbabwe side is the best, but both worth visiting.
  • I had an amazing experience with my partnerter at the majestic falls. Victoria falls is not dry as you can see from the pictures. The rain forest is still rainy too. If you go around sunset, you can get amazing pictures and watch the sun set a golden yellow. I still haven't gotten enough of the falls each encounter is different! Great food, good and affordable shops in the small busy town of Vic Falls. Everything you might need is well within reach. There is a good public transport system, to and from both Bulawayo and Harare. I hope you are planning your trip to the mighty falls... Enjoy!
  • Incredible sights, stunning place. If you’re lucky/careful enough to plan your visit around a full moon, you can also see the rare lunar rainbows. To the eye, it looks like a ghostly and milky bridge, connecting the base of the falls with some other magical realm. With long exposure camera, you can get the full colors of the rainbow. I leave a bad photo with Iphone😜
  • Victoria Falls is one of the seven natural wonder of the world. Very beautiful place and people come at this site all over the world, all year round to do guided Falls tours with Dewclaw Eco Tours and Safaris. Both Zimbabwe and Zambian side.
  • Amazing scenery at the magnificent Victoria Falls, even during the dry season, it continues to stand tall. Loved the experience, and especially zip lining across the Vic Falls Bridge bordering Zambia & Zimbabwe. Great hike down the falls to the boiling point.
