Things To Do In Victoria Falls

During some parts of the year the Zambian side of the Falls has been known to dry up, but on the Zimbabwean side, the water flows steadily all year long. And, as it’s home to 75% of the views, a guided tour of Zimbabwe’s Victoria Falls National Park is to be the headline act of your trip. Camera space full and mind suitably blown, lunch at the famed Lookout Café is in order. But make sure to insert another memory card/buy more iCloud space quickly because once again a photo opportunity calls. Perched atop one of Batoka Gorge’s craggy chasms, commanding views of the choppy waters running under the iconic Victoria Falls Bridge up ahead, this stop takes dining with a view to a whole new level.

Unsatisfied by these generic forms of watching the Falls make their ferocious crash, why not opt for our 'Once in a Lifetime' experience and hop in a helicopter over the Falls. Aptly named 'The Flight of Angels', you'll be one of only a few that get to admire this view from the skies- the view is quite simply, heavenly.

View of Zambezi river

Out on the bridge that links Zimbabwe to Zambia, take your pick from zip-lining your way across the gorge – on the world’s longest of its kind – or chugging your way across the Victoria Falls Bridge by luxury rail on our 'Food & Wine' experience. Exuding the glamour of a bygone era, the Bushtracks Express will have you feeling nothing short of a VIP – think champagne and canapes followed by a five-course gourmet spread. 

Oh, and you can’t miss the “big tree” – literally. Forget your oaks, beeches and willows, in Zimbabwe it’s all about the baobab. Quite the landmark, Victoria Falls’ “big tree” is presumed to be over 1,000 years old and it’s not just in age that it will dwarf you.

Experiences and attractions in Victoria Falls

Victoria Falls Bridge

The bridge is undoubtedly a sight to behold and one that many want to get a picture of just as much as the falls themselves. But crossing it is where things get really magic.

Zambezi River

The world’s biggest waterfall may be the biggest draw here, but you can guarantee that holidaymakers will snap away at the Zambezi too – the river’s choppy, croc infested waters, flanked by the craggy gorge that makes the natural border between Zimbabwe and Zambia, definitely call out to be photographed in their own right.
