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 get up close and personal with the Zambezi with a cocktail-serving river cruise. Or, for an action-packed visit, it’s all about the white water rafting – it’s got a reputation for being the best one-day rafting trip in the world, so if you’re going to do it anywhere, the Zambezi is your best bet.
Out of the water, take your pick from ziplining 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. 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.
There's lots to enjoy at Vic Falls, select the ‘once in a lifetime’ experience pack to secure yourself a place at dinner on the Bushtracks Express. It’s not an experience that you’ll forget in a hurry, that’s for sure.

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.Discover more
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.Discover more
