Victoria Falls - one of the most spectacular natural wonders of the world. The Local people call Victoria Falls "Mosi-oa-Tunya" -- the smoke that thunders.

Visit the Victoria Falls and choose from a variety of accommodation on either the Zambian or Zimbabwean side of the river. The accommodation we book for guests comprises hotels, lodges and guest houses. Besides the accommodation, we book transfers and excursions to make your visit to Victoria Falls more interesting.

Victoria Falls is 1 708 meters wide, making it the largest curtain of water in the world. The Victoria Falls drops between 90m and 107m into the Zambezi Gorge and an average of 550,000 cubic metres of water plummet over the edge every minute.
Remarkably preserved in its natural state, Victoria Falls inspires visitors as much today as it did David Livingstone, in the 1860's. Victoria Falls and the surrounding area have been declared National Parks and a World Heritage Site, thus preserving the area from excessive commercialisation. The accommodation are located discreetly away from the Falls.Victoria Falls is spectacular throughout the year, but from February onwards, after the rain season, has the heaviest flow and volume of spray.
A number of activities can be undertaken at Victoria Falls. The 'Flight of Angels' provides a fabulous vista of the Victoria Falls, upstream river and its many islands and for the more adventurous there is microlighting with stunning views of the Victoria Falls.
White Water Rafting the wild rapids below the Victoria Falls is a very popular adventure. Visitors of the Victoria falls can also kayak, canoe, fish, bunjee jump, go on guided walking safaris, ride on horseback and lunch on Livingstone's Island. Book here.

Victoria Falls enjoys a mild and dry winter from around June to mid-August and is an all year round destination. The Victoria falls has a warm to hot spring until the rains start in mid-November; summer becomes warm and wet and stays so at Victoria Falls until the rainy season passes at the end of April! The rainy season in the Victoria Falls area is often characterised by sudden torrential downpours with violent storms followed as quickly by blue skies and sunshine. Rafting at Victoria Falls is dependent on the Zambezi water levels. 'Low water season' is the most exciting from around mid July to early January when visiting the Victoria Falls, with water levels dropping progressively until the lowest levels are reached during December and January. Victoria Falls annual rains start in the middle of November but it's only in January that these waters arrive at Victoria Falls, levels climb again and 'high water season' starts. The peak of the annual flood at Victoria Falls is usually around Easter time. Rafting stops when the Zambezi is in full spate, sometimes from around mid March to early May each year.

This is a Malaria area. Consult your Medical Practitioner with regards to malaria prophylactics before visiting Victoria Falls.
