Victoria Falls

One of the 7 natural wonders of the world, Victoria Falls is an amazing waterfall located in southern Africa on the Zambezi River.  The falls border the countries of Zambia and Zimbabwe.  It is one of the largest waterfalls in the world, measuring 1708 meters (5604 feet) wide and 108 meters (354 feet) tall!  As a frame of reference – these falls are double the height and double the width of Niagara Falls between the US and Canada.  Visiting Victoria Falls is a landscape photographer’s dream!

You can access the falls from Victoria Falls National Park in Zimbabwe or from Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park in Zambia – both given entirely different perspectives   Water levels are highest between March-June if you want to plan to visit when the views are most spectacular!

When visiting Victoria Falls you can go high adventure with whitewater rafting or take a more tranquil boat ride on the Zambezi River where its highly probable you will see hippos as well as a gorgeous sunset.  Zambezi National Park is nearby for wildlife safari.  The town of Victoria Falls is a fun little town to visit with local artisans and places to dine and drink.
