Dubbed the ‘Activity Capital of Africa’, Vic Falls has countless activities on offer for travellers of all walks of life and a host of superb accommodation options.

Between the drier, low-water months of late September to mid-December, there is usually little to no water flow over the Zambian side of the Falls. Its essential visitors know this and make time to cross from Zambia to Zimbabwe even for just a half day.

When the waters are low travellers are able to experience the ‘notorious’ Devils Pool from the Zambian side.

Be it a romantic dinner served aboard a historic steam train while watching a herd of impala canter off into the sunset, enjoying a champagne breakfast on the mighty Zambezi River in the company of brilliant birdlife and snorting hippos or an unforgettable helicopter flight over the majestic Zambezi as it cascades over the sheer cliff sending off the famous “Smoke that thunders”. The beauty and treasure that is the Victoria Falls will leave you with wonderfully lasting memories.
