Forming a natural border between Zambia and Zimbabwe, Victoria Falls is one of the world’s largest waterfalls at 1.7 kms wide and with a height of 354 ft, resulting in the world’s largest sheet of falling water, an awe-inspiring sight to behold. This natural wonder, also known as ‘Mosi-oa-Tunya’ or ‘The smoke that thunders’, is a UNESCO World Heritage site.
As well as being an incredible spectacle, the Falls offer many activities for those who want to give their adrenalin a boost, such as white water rafting, bungee jumping and zip lining or helicopter rides that can be taken around the Falls.
If you are planning to include Victoria Falls in your itinerary then you will most likely want to visit just after the rains, otherwise you may be disappointed. February-May is when the falls are at their peak capacity and are incredibly spectacular, although some of the actives such as rafting are not available due to dangerous conditions.
The later months of the year, October-November, the drier the conditions are and the water may have even dried up completely on the Zambian side, water flow on the Zimbabwe side is a constant but may be very low.
