Welcome to Victoria Falls

Located on the Zambezi River in Africa—where Zambia meets Zimbabwe—and known locally as Mosi-oa-Tunya, or "the smoke that thunders"—Victoria Falls takes pride of place as one of the largest waterfalls in the world. Attracting visitors from across the globe keen to admire the cascading torrent up-close, this UNESCO World Heritage Site has been flowing for more than 100,000 years, and it continues to shape the surrounding landscape. Fittingly for a landmark of this magnitude, there are plenty of ways to see the falls. Thrill-seekers can tackle the raging white-water currents on a rafting adventure, take to the skies on a helicopter sightseeing flight, or leap into the void and swing through the mist on a bungee jump. Many of Victoria Falls' more relaxing travel options take visitors away from the falls themselves, to where native wildlife roams. Nature-lovers can take a single or multiday trip and spot crocodiles, elephants, and hippos in the Chobe National Park and Hwange National Park. Meanwhile, canoe safaris and sunset cruises offer spectacular views over the open wilderness from the mighty Zambezi River. And if you're looking for a true taste of African culture, you can book an experience with a local family to enjoy a traditional African lunch in their home.

Top 9 attractions in Victoria Falls

Chobe National Park

Located the northeastern corner of Botswana, Chobe National Park encompasses more than 4,500 square miles (12,000 square kilometers) of floodplains, forest, swamps, and rivers. The park is known for having one of the largest concentrations of wildlife in Africa; most notably, a large elephant population.More

Victoria Falls (Mosi-oa-Tunya)

UNESCO World Heritage Site Victoria Falls (Mosi-oa-Tunya), on the border between Zambia and Zimbabwe, represents the world’s largest sheet of falling water, though not the widest or tallest. Dr. David Livingston named the falls after the Queen of England. On a clear day, you can see the mist generated by the falls from up to 30 miles (48 kilometers) away.More

Victoria Falls National Park

Named for the thundering falls at its heart, Victoria Falls National Park is a lush rainforest that surrounds the Zimbabwean side of Victoria Falls. The park offers arguably the best views of the falls, providing more than a dozen overlooks for admiring the 5,604-foot (1,708-meter)-wide wall of water—known as the largest sheet of falling water in the world.More

Hwange National Park

Roughly the size of Belgium, Hwange National Park is Zimbabwe’s largest and most historical game reserve. Home to more than 100 mammals—including one of the world’s largest herds of elephants, and 400 avian species—the national park is one of the most diverse game reserves found anywhere else on Earth.More

Victoria Falls Bridge

Experience the spray of the largest sheet of falling water in the world as you stand on Victoria Falls Bridge. Spanning the Zambezi River, the former railroad bridge is now a tourist attraction where visitors can marvel at the Zambezi gorge. A unique platform for viewing the falls, the bridge is also the jumping-off point for numerous high-adrenaline sports.More

Victoria Falls Crocodile Farm

As the second largest crocodilian on earth, the Nile crocodile is a top predator in the Zambezi River and around Victoria Falls. Get up close and personal with these reptiles at the Crocodile Farm in Victoria Falls—a nature park designed to educate the public about these fierce creatures.More


As the country’s second largest city and original capital, Bulawayo might not have the same allure as Victoria Falls but is still a city rich with Zimbabwean culture and history. Once the country’s industrial center, Bulawayo dates back to pre-colonial days and has a mix of modern and historic structures.More

Batoka Gorge

The Batoka Gorge, located just below the powerful Victoria Falls, winds through 75 miles (120 km) of rocky cliffs and sparse mopane forests between Zambia and Zimbabwe. And while hiking along this gorge that reaches heights of 400 feet in some areas ranks high on things to do, it’s the thrilling one-day whitewater rafting adventures that draw travelers to Batoka Gorge. Rapids with nicknames like “The Ugly Sister” and “Oblivion” put adrenaline junkies face-to-face with their fears and have travelers emerging from the waters with epic stories of survival. In addition to embarking on wild rides and challenging hikes, visitors to Batoka Gorge can spot a variety of species of indigenous birds, witness baboons wandering along beaten pathways and get up close to some of the rare plants that help to make Batoka Gorge so scenic.More
