More than 6,000 acres along the Zambezi River make up this lush rainforest reserve, which boasts some of the best views of Victoria Falls. From the shores of this protected land it’s easy to see at least four of the five sections that make up this natural wonder—the Devil’s Cataract, Main Falls, Horseshoe Falls and the Eastern Cataract.
Take the short walk to Cataract Point in the far west to experience a profile view of the falls looking east. Then wander to Danger Point, where you can descend the 73 steps into the gorge separating Zimbabwe from Zambia. This may be the closest visitors can get to the Devil’s Cataract, the lowest of the five falls, but it’s not such a great spot for catching scenic views, since the bigger picture tends to get lost in the mist.
The park is open year round but the falls lose some of their magic during dry season, between October and November. The park is an easy two-kilometer walk from town.
