Visit Victoria Falls, a landmark UNESCO World Heritage Site renowned for its sheer size and power, as well as its long history of captivating the minds of explorers. Situated just a short drive from your lodge, your walking tour will take you up close to the spray as you learn about David Livingstone’s famed visit in 1855.
Locally known as Mosi-oa-Tunya (or the Smoke that Thunders), this remarkable 108-metre cascade makes a deafening roar. Witness the largest sheet of falling water on the planet, forcing a gigantic rainbow-punctured cloud hundreds of metres into the air. Needless to say, be prepared to get wet.
You may also spot some of the diverse array of bird species which can be found here, including African skimmer and fish eagle. Watch these majestic raptors swooping over the lower Zambezi scanning for prey. Look out for monkeys and other bird species in the mopane forest which boarders this great river.
Additional notes about the tour
Prepare to get wet, particularly in full flood (March to July) when it can be like walking through a thunderstorm. Visiting the Zambian side of the falls is seasonal (from the end of August to January it is best to view the falls from the Zimbabwean side). Ponchos are provided.
