Set your gaze upon Victoria Falls, the largest falls in the world. The waterfall is named in honor of Queen Victoria of Britain by a Scottish missionary, who perceived his discovery only as an obstacle to his preaching of Christianity to the whole of the African continent. Also called Mosi-oa-Tunya, "the smoke that thunders," by the local people, the falls extend 1,708 m (5,604 ft) across and 108 m (354 ft) in height. See the columns of spray from miles away plunging to the gorge below. To reach the falls you have to trek a road through the forest, so wear appropriate shoes. PutVictoria Falls into our Livingstone route builder app and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • This is an awesome must visit wonder of the world. Your Southern Africa trip is incomplete without a visit to the Victoria Falls; The pride of Zambia and Africa.

  • Truly breathtaking! This majestic waterfall is a must do not just if you in the area but in general. There’s a stark contrast in what you see and experience depending on how full the Zambezi river is which varies throughout the year. Truly amazing. Make sure you get a poncho !
  • The falls are amazing. If you’re able to visit at any point in your life you should definitely visit. We stayed on the Zambian side and visited in May when the falls was in it’s full glory. It was a wonderful experience that words cannot do Justice.
