Victoria Falls – Zimbabwe
Welcome to the great Victoria Falls, one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the world and a place where wilderness, adventure and culture unite around one stunning spectacle.

Incredible natural beauty, and remarkable wildlife viewing combine to awe visitors to this UNESCO World Heritage Site on the border of Zimbabwe and Zambia, where the Zambezi River drops more than 100m into the Batoka Gorge to form Victoria Falls. At 1.7km wide, it is the largest curtain of falling water in the world, and is often referred to as “Mosi-oa-Tunya” or the Smoke that Thunders.

Victoria Falls, is a year round destination. However, the water levels vary throughout the year, being at their highest between April and June, and their lowest from October to December.

Viewing the Victoria Falls at different times of the year offers different experiences – in high flow its entire length is a thundering wall of falling water, whereas in low flow the underlying structure can be seen and visibility is clearer.

The international airport at Victoria Falls will is making the destination increasingly accessible from around the globe, and a natural jump-off point to explore the KAZA (Kavango Zambezi Transfrontier Conservation Area) region, which is the richest wildlife real estate on the planet.

The Victoria Falls were formed more than 70 000 years ago after the gushing water of the Zambezi River, which flowed over hard basalt with large cracks filled with weaker sandstone, eroded the softer rock to create a deep chasm which became a waterfall.

Victoria Falls has a rich history, with evidence of dinosaurs in the region as far back as 200 million years ago, followed by now extinct mammals such as buffalo with 3m horns, a short-necked giraffe with antlers and the African mammoth elephant.

A large collection of late stone age tools has also been found around Victoria Falls, showing evidence of early man.The early Homo Sapiens in the area were San Bushmen and after the Bantu Migration down from west and east Africa,they were joined by the Tonga, Lozi and latterly the Nambya people, before the Ndebele came up from the south.

In 1855 Scottish explorer and missionary David Livingstone became the first European to see Victoria Falls and named them after his Queen, bringing them to the attention of the world, after which the falls became a major tourist attraction.

There are several wildlife viewing opportunities in Victoria Falls. A favorite for locals and visitors alike is the Victoria Falls Safari Lodge waterhole, where a sundowner may be enjoyed on the viewing deck or at the Buffalo Bar as elephant, buffalo, kudu and other wildlife also quench their thirst.

Victoria Falls town is uniquely located within Victoria Falls National Park, and it is not uncommon to share the footpath with a vervet monkey with a baby on its back, or a family of warthogs! Game drives in the nearby Zambezi National Park offer the opportunity to see lion, elephant, buffalo, giraffe, zebra and several species of antelope.

Game viewing is best during the dry season between July and October, when there is less water around and animals congregate at waterholes. Wildlife is also easier to spot during this time as the bush is not so thick and lush.

Victoria Falls is part of the richest wildlife estate on the planet, with other excellent wildlife viewing opportunities in the region including Hwange National Park, Chobe National Park, while slightly further afield is the Okavango Delta and Kafue National Park.

In order to conserve our wildlife heritage and leave a legacy for generations to come Victoria Falls Safari Lodge established, in 1999, the Victoria Falls Anti-Poaching Unit together with local safari operator and conservationist Charles Brightman.

Nature and Wildlife
We offer the most discerning traveller a taste of Africa at its best, from luxurious lodges and breath-taking views to warm hospitality and an authentic wildlife experience.

Onsite Waterhole
Victoria Falls Safari Lodge is located on a plateau overlooking a waterhole which attracts a variety of wildlife including elephant, buffalo, kudu, waterbuck, impala as well as a large number of bird species.

Game may be seen at the waterhole from the lodge’s viewing deck, pool deck or over drinks or a meal at the Buffalo Bar and MaKuwa-Kuwa Restaurant. The majority of rooms at the lodge also have a direct view of the waterhole from where guests may watch the game from the privacy of their balcony.

Vulture Culture Experience
Don’t miss the opportunity to witness the spectacular sight of hundreds of vultures swooping down and feeding on leftover meat scraps and bones from the on-site restaurants in front of Victoria Falls Safari Lodge at 1pm daily.

As well as providing the opportunity for visitors to spot white headed vultures, hooded vultures, lappet faced vultures and white backed vultures, this supplementary feeding program aids the survival of these remarkable, but endangered birds.

The activity, which is free and appeals to all age groups, begins with a briefing on a deck beneath Victoria Falls Safari Lodge, about the ecological importance of vultures and the plight they are facing, before guests take a short walk down a bush path to a hide to view the vultures feeding.

Vulture populations are dwindling due to a variety of human created issues, including electrocution by power lines, loss of available and safe food supply, direct and indirect poisoning and the use of their parts for traditional medicines.

Siduli Hide
A sit in the Siduli Hide at the edge of the Victoria Falls Safari Lodge waterhole offers the incredible opportunity to watch wildlife at very close quarters for a sustained period of time.

Designed to look like a termite mound, guests are concealed inside the hide, from where they may closely observe large herds of elephant and buffalo, as well as kudu, warthogs, crocodiles, marabou storks, vultures and more.

The hide sit, ideal for keen photographers and wildlife enthusiasts who seek a unique and exclusive way to enjoy wildlife while visiting Victoria Falls, is run by professional guide Charles Brightman.

The two-hour activity, which is available to groups of up to six, is best done in the early morning or late afternoon.

Bird Hide
A bird hide sit, offering the chance to spot a variety of different species, including guinea fowl, kingfishers, shrikes and doves, at Victoria Falls Safari Lodge, is a great way to while away an hour, and is suitable for all age groups. The bird hide is surrounded by nature trails where bushbuck and warthog are commonly sighted.

Both the bird hide and the nature trails can be explored at guests’ own leisure. Don’t forget to bring along a hat, water and binoculars. Special arrangements may be made for groups.

The activities below are among some of the most popular on offer in Victoria Falls, and may be booked through the Victoria Falls Safari Lodge’s activities desk or with your butler for guests staying at the Victoria Falls Safari Club.

Sunset Cruise
Sit back, relax and soak up the last rays of the African sun as you gently drift along the Zambezi River above the Falls with a gin and tonic in hand and enjoying delicious snacks. Look out for elephant, hippo, crocodile, magnificent birds and other wildlife.

The finale of the cruise is the unforgettable sight of the sun setting over the Zambezi River, turning the sky into a myriad of reds, oranges and pinks and casting shadows and silhouettes all around.

Game Drives
There is no better way to explore the African bush than on a guided game drive in an open safari vehicle. We offer drives in the early morning and late afternoon, allowing you to choose to do this activity when it best suits your itinerary.

As well as numerous bird species, wildlife that may be seen on the game drive, taken through Zambezi National Park, includes elephant, buffalo, giraffe, zebra, waterbuck and other antelope.

Helicopter Rides
Sign up for an unrivaled and breath-taking bird’s-eye view of the majestic Victoria Falls and surrounding areas.

There are three different types of flights that depart regularly throughout the day – a 15-minute flight takes you above the Victoria Falls, a 22-minute flight also takes you over Batoka Gorge and the Zambezi River, while a 25-minute flight includes game viewing opportunities over the Zambezi National Park.

Victoria Falls Rainforest Guided Tour
Victoria Falls, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and the largest curtain of falling water in the world, can be enjoyed from the Zimbabwean side of the Falls 365 days of the year.

On this tour you will be accompanied through the Rainforest by a qualified guide who will give a brief history of the Falls, as well as detailing the flora, fauna and other points of interest.

Stop at lookout points along the way to marvel at one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World. Lunar Rainbow tours are available during full moon nights.

White Water Rafting
Arguably the wildest white water in the world, rafting the mighty Zambezi River is the ultimate adrenaline rush. The Zambezi rapids are officially defined as Grade 5 (Grade 6 being commercially un-runnable).

The rafting experience begins at 7am when you are collected from your hotel. Save some energy for the steep walk out of the gorge at the end of an action-packed morning, where an ice cold coke or beer and a well-earned lunch awaits you.

Adrenaline Highwire
Be daring and test your limits with the high wire activities from the ‘Look-Out’, set on the spectacular cliffs of the Batoka Gorge, just 300m from the Victoria Falls.

Experience a collection of mind-blowing extreme adrenaline activities – the gorge swing, zip line, flying fox, as well as a canopy tour, which is suitable for families and children from the age of six years.
