Discover Victoria Falls
Victoria Falls town is situated in the western portion of Zimbabwe and is one of Africa’s most famous tourist towns. It is known for being a gateway to Victoria Falls - a UNESCO Natural World Heritage Site and one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World. Dubbed ‘the smoke that thunders’, the Victoria Falls is a bucket list destination for many travelers.
In addition to providing some of the best views of the iconic falls, the town is also flanked by two national parks - Zambezi National Park and Victoria Falls National Park. Taking full advantage of its convenient location, the lively village of Victoria Falls offers world-class adventure-tourism and wildlife safaris. It is loved as Africa’s adrenalin capital, with some of the popular pulse-racing activities including white-water rafting down the Zambezi, bungee jumping off Victoria Falls bridge or helicopter flights for an epic aerial view. In and amongst all the activity, this bustling tourist centre manages to retain a relaxed atmosphere while still giving you a taste of local life.
