Sunset From The Buffalo Bar At Victoria Falls Safari Lodge

A great start or end to a Zimbabwe holiday

For the perfect experience combine the Falls with a visit to the town itself, before venturing upstream into the Zambezi National Park for a taste of safari life.

Sandwiched between Zimbabwe to the South and Zambia to the North, the spectacular Victoria Falls are one of Zimbabwe’s most iconic areas and a superb start or end point to any trip to the country. At 108 metres high and 1708 metres wide, these are amongst the most impressive waterfalls in the world, especially when the flow is at its peak, usually between February and July each year. However, even when the water levels drop to barely a trickle towards the end of the year, there is still plenty to do here, including white water rafting, bungee jumping and walks deep in the gorges.

Despite the Falls being the main attraction, this is not the only reason to visit the area. Victoria Falls town itself is a wonderfully vibrant place to visit, with superb restaurants, craft breweries and an increasingly important art scene, mirroring what is taking place across Africa. Further upstream the Zambezi National Park is small but really packs a punch when it comes to game viewing – ideal for visitors wanting to get a taste of safari before continuing their adventures in other national parks, or in combination with The Falls for those pushed for time.

The diversity that Victoria Falls has to offer is echoed in the range of accommodation in the area. In town there is a great choice of lodges, large hotels and guesthouse style properties, whilst downstream there are some stunning lodges perched on the cliffs staring down in to the gorges below. Up in the Zambezi National Park there is a mixture of traditional safari lodge style properties, ideal for those looking to get a feel of being in the bush and also to escape the hustle and bustle of being in town.

The Falls themselves are a huge attraction and draw many people to Zimbabwe in their own right and can be used as a jumping-off point for wider trips through Zimbabwe or simply for those looking to spend a few days here in combination with trips through South Africa or Botswana. Access is very easy thanks to the newly built airport terminal building and air access is improving month by month.

No matter what time of year you choose to visit, a few days at The Falls is a great way to spend part of your trip to Africa and we can recommend the perfect place for you to stay and enjoy everything that you want to get out of your visit.
