As a World Heritage Site, the Victoria Falls must rank as one of the finest. The Zambezi River travels about 750 miles before it plunges more than 100m down into a basalt chasm with spectacular force. Named after Queen Victoria by David Livingstone – the first European to view the falls, who also lends his name to the Zambian town adjacent to the falls. The indigenous peoples aptly referred to the falls as “Mosi-oa-Tunya” meaning “the smoke that thunders”. When the river is at its peak, there certainly is no better way to describe these falls.
There are numerous lodges and camps to choose from. Some are located in the old Victoria Falls town with easy walking access to falls and other tourist activities. Others are out in the National Parks as more typical safari lodges whilst offering short transfers to see the falls.
