Visit Victoria Falls
A visit to Victoria Falls is not only highly recommended when you travel to Zimbabwe, but an absolute must-do bucket list item when traveling to Africa. You will be awestruck by the sheer magnitude of the rumbling and thundering of the largest sheet of water in the world.
Whether you're in search of fine romance, a great family breakaway or heart throbbing adventure, a visit to Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe is sure to be a memorable one. Here's why.
Unlike its Victoria Falls neighbor, Zambia, Zimbabwe flaunts 70% share of viewpoints and water flows 365 days of the year. Which means that during dry season (September to November) you can still enjoy the views, while the Zambian side will be parched. During peak-flood season (April to May) mammoth spraying mists create magical double rainbows and it's nearly impossible to see the base of the falls.
Beyond the 105 meters (344 feet) drops and once-in-a-lifetime sights, Victoria Falls Zimbabwe attractions include a myriad of adrenalin and luxurious options. From bungee jumping, white water rafting, and helicopter flips, to sophisticated creature comforts with a touch of Victorian charm on private concessions, and with fine dining in open view of the falls.
In addition, because Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe is located in a protected national park it's also home to numerous African wild animals, including giraffe, zebra, buffalo, antelope, as well as crocodiles and hippos living in the upstream of the Zambezi River. If you want an even closer experience with Africa, you can hop on an elephant's back and go on safari. Or, if you're feeling less adventurous, a leisure cruise on the Zambezi is a welcome alternative.
Please note, Victoria Falls can be experienced from both Zimbabwe and Zambia and both have pros and cons, fortunately you don't have to pick sides, thanks to a border crossing day pass visa. Alternatively, you can also apply for a UNIVISA. Please note that Yellow Fever requirements for Zambia and Zimbabwe may vary, please consult your travel expert and the relevant consulate.
