The mighty Victoria Falls have driven many a traveller into superlatives. Possibly the first among them was David Livingstone who said that “scenes so lovely must have been gazed upon by angels in their flight” and the world’s largest sheet of falling water lives up to this high praise.
The Zimbabwean town of Victoria Falls has the better view of Mosi-oa-Tunya (the Smoke that Thunders) as the Falls are also known. Even though the Zimbabwean side boasts a view of 805 of the water the Zambian side is growing in popularity due to political issues. Whatever side you choose, the natural wonder and world heritage site is a unique experience and the activities created around Vic Falls cater to discerning and adventurous travellers alike.

- River cruises
