A visit to Victoria Falls is certainly one of the finest African experiences. Mosi-oa-tunya, as the falls are known locally, are one of the natural Wonders of the World, spanning the Zambezi River at over a mile long and plunging down 100 meters.
There are a range of places to stay, but essentially your choice boils down to whether Victoria Falls is the real focus of your stay. There are very good hotel-style places within walking distance, allowing you to experience the light and sound of the falls at different times of day and night. The white-water rafting and scenic flights are also based in the towns of Livingstone and Victoria Falls. Alternatively, the excellent safari-style camps that are found less than 30 minutes drive upstream allow one to escape the tourist huddle and enjoy the more serene Zambezi River and different activities. There is lots to do!
