The size of the Victoria Falls is almost double that of Niagara Falls, and more than twice the size of the Horseshoe Falls in Canada. The only rival are the Iguazu Falls in Argentina and Brazil.

Crossing the Victoria Falls Bridge with its characteristic steel arch, finished in 1905, you can go from one country to the other.

David Livingstone, the Scottish missionary and explorer, visited the waterfalls in 1855 and baptized them with the name of Queen Victoria.

In 1989, the Victoria Falls were declared a World Heritage Site by the Unesco.

Arrival Day

We will land at the Victoria Falls or Livingstone airport (on the Zambian side) from Johannesburg(1.5h) or Cape Town. If we fly from Johannesburg we will have had to spend the night in that city as most of the flights leave early in the morning. At the airport there willbe a car waiting to drive us about 20 ‘ to Victoria Falls City. The excitment of getting closer to the falls is spectacular. From the distance, before reaching the city, a huge water cloud juts out over the jungle and can be seen from miles away. Victoria Falls is a small city, but at the same time the largest tourist hub in the western part of Zimbabwe. We will be staying at the best hotel in the city, the Victoria Falls Hotel . A five star hotel with quick access to the national park and with incredible views on the smoke of the waterfalls. The other attractions of the area are: the famous bridge over the Zambezi river, border between Zambia (Livingstone) and Zimbabwe. The huge Hwange National Park that is only 180km away from the Victoria Falls, the Zambezi River itself and the border point. Once we checked in, we will go to the entrance of the Victoria Falls National Park. A private guide will be waiting for us at the entrance, on the Zimbabwean side. They will provide us with raincoats and we will start the tour. Depending on the season of the year the landscape we will see will be different, since it is in constant change. We will enjoy an exquisite dinner on the terrace of the hotel contemplating how the water cloud of the falls emerges over the jungle.
