Victoria Falls

Discover Victoria Falls with Ujuzi African Travel

Nothing can prepare you for your first encounter with Victoria Falls. It is a truly phenomenal experience, engaging not only your sight as you try to take in the breadth of the falls, but flooding your other senses, as well: the sound of countless water droplets smashing against rocks, the enlivening scent of river mist perfuming the air, the rush of cool air as you get closer to the churning cataract.

The world’s largest waterfall roars along the border between Zambia and Zimbabwe, releasing vapor-filled clouds often visible miles away. No wonder the local Lozi people call it Mosi-oa-Tunya, or “the smoke that thunders.” The array of animal, butterfly, and plant life here is as spectacular as the falls themselves.

Victoria Falls Activities

Victoria Falls Safaris

Victoria Falls is easily reached from Africa’s most popular safari destinations. Just a short drive from the Namibian border and Botswana’s Chobe National Park, Victoria Falls is serviced by two airports, allowing connections to multiple locales. This makes Victoria Falls an ideal addition to any African safari. We offer this sample itinerary to provide inspiration for your own Victoria Falls activities. Contact Ujuzi African Travel for a trip tailored to your dreams!
