Victoria Falls View: Zambia or Zimbabwe
Victoria Falls is the highest waterfall in the world with a mile-long curtain formed as millions of cubic metres of water are forced down into a 100m deep gorge during peak flow season (from February-June). About three quarters of Victoria Falls lies on the Zimbabwe side which has fantastic view-points to fully experience this awe-inspiring wonderland.
The falls on the Zambian side dry up completely in the months of October and November. For those wanting to get nearer to the Falls for a daring swim in the Devil’s Pool, this is a safe time. This adrenaline filled activity tests your nerves as you’re guided through the running river to a rock pool right on the very lip of one of the tallest waterfalls in the world! The activity starts gently enough with a boat trip out to Livingstone Island, famous as the spot where David Livingstone first saw the falls.
The Falls flow all year round on the Zimbabwe side. Crossing between the countries is easy. With the introduction of a single visa that covers Zambia, Zimbabwe and daytrips into Chobe National Park in Botswana, it is easy to visit both sides of the Falls either by road or a crossing on foot. The 20-minute walk takes you over the Victoria Falls Bridge with spectacular waterfall views & of the excited huddle of bungee jumpers. If you are short on time we recommend a classic view of the Main Falls from Zimbabwe
