Victoria Falls Safari

Plan Your Trip: Victoria Falls Tours, Safaris, Family Vacation Packages, and Travel Information

Victoria Falls is a true bucket list destination! One of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World, the mighty Victoria Falls is a breathtaking sight. Almost twice the height of Niagara Falls, the force of the waterfall creates an impressive, roaring mist that gives the Falls their traditional name: Mosi-oa-Tunya, or “The Smoke That Thunders.”

There are countless tours and safaris available in and around the Falls. Whether you’re on your honeymoon, a family vacation, or traveling with friends, Victoria Falls has something for everyone!

Hop in a helicopter for breathtaking aerial views, enjoy a water safari on the Zambezi River, or relax on a scenic sunset cruise. Feed the resident elephants and enjoy a gourmet lunch at the Elephant Cafe; tour the markets in a nearby village; and visit a local school.

Looking for an adrenaline rush? Get a bird’s eye view of Victoria Falls from a microlight, go bungy jumping off Victoria Falls Bridge, swim in the Devil’s Pool, or enjoy some intense whitewater rafting in the Zambezi River.

Victoria Falls and the Zambezi River form the border between Zimbabwe and Zambia, and both sides offer a range of exceptional lodgings. The Zimbabwe side features grand, sweeping views of the Falls, while the Zambia side is home to most of the area’s adventure activities. Thanks to its central location, Victoria Falls combines easily with top safari destinations, including South Africa and Botswana.

Best Time to Visit Victoria Falls

April to May: Just after the summer rains, this is the best time to see Victoria Falls at its most impressive.

June to August: Victoria Falls is still flowing mightily in these months. This is the best time to combine Victoria Falls with a Botswana safari.

August to January: During the dry season, you can swim in Devil’s Pool at the top of Victoria Falls. This is also the best time for whitewater rafting, which is too dangerous when the Falls are full.
