What You Can Expect

Victoria Falls Walking Tour

See the impressive Victoria Falls on a walking Tour!

Choose from a morning or afternoon tour, and then start your tour with a pickup from your centrally located Victoria Falls hotel. On your way to the falls, stop on the banks of the Zambezi River for a photo op next to 'The Big Tree' — an impressive baobab that is believed to be more than 1,000 years old.

Continue by minibus to the rainforest that fringes Victoria Falls, and then set off on a walk along the lush trails while learning all about the world-famous waterfall. Listed as one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World, the waterfall is also known as Mosi-oa-Tunya, meaning ‘smoke that thunders’ in Kololo. The name resonates: you can see the mist of the roaring falls from some 20 miles (32 km) away.

As you explore the pretty rainforest trails that surround the falls, marvel at the sight of the Zambezi River plunging down a series of basalt gorges. At roughly 1.2 miles (2 km) wide and 360 feet (108 m) tall, Victoria Falls is one of the world’s largest waterfalls — approximately twice the size of Niagara Falls.

Look out for Livingstone’s Statue that looks out over the Devil’s Cataract — a natural pool that marks the lowest point of the falls — and learn about the monument's namesake, David Livingstone. The intrepid explorer brought Victoria Falls to the world’s attention when he stumbled upon them in 1855. Instantly stunned by the falls’ grandeur, he decided to name them after Queen Victoria.

After two hours of exploring the rainforest trails around the waterfall, return to your coach and finish your tour with a hotel drop-off.

It was beautiful to walk around on the Zimbabwe side and to know that we were also on the Zambia side the morning of experiencing the devil's pool!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended January 2015

This was excellent, but physical quite taxing. The total amount of walking is about 3-4 miles.

Falls were great

5 star rating: Highly Recommended May 2014

What can I say. The Falls did all the talking. Spectacular. Worth it for us for the transfers plus the guides tend to fast track you through the sometimes busy entry gates. Don't let them talk you into the morning tour. The afternoons are when you'll get a rainbow in every photo.

3 star rating: Worth doing May 2015

Tour was ok was quiet seasons only only two of us on the bus. Our tour guide was on his phone quite a lot which was distracting. he was very nice and kind but I would have preferred to take the ten minute taxi and do it ourselves also we didn't visit any tree as mentioned in the tour so not worth it
