Explore The Smoke That Thunders
“The world is full of magic things, patiently waiting for our senses to grow sharper.” – W.B. Yeats
At Victoria Falls, Yeats’ world of magic lies in wait more than ever – from a rainbow’s dance at full moon to the cascade of one of the world’s most spectacular natural wonders. We invite you to discover just why this marvel, 30 kilometres downstream from our setting on the Zambezi River, is considered the Adventure Capital of Africa. There are so many ways to experience the largest curtain of falling water in the world – a title granted due to the Falls’ width (a hefty 1,708 metres) and height (towering above at 108 metres). Slip through the Zambezi’s ravine on a white-water rafting cruise or fly overhead in a microlight or helicopter – a chopper ride you can continue to our private helipad at Royal Chundu. Test your nerves in nature’s infinity pool at Devil’s Pool and feel the Falls’ spray on your cheeks on Zambian soil or a border hop away in Zimbabwe. Make it a full day adventure on a tour that combines several unique aspects of Mosi-oa-Tunya, so named by the Toka Leya tribe, meaning ‘The Smoke that Thunders’.

How to get to there
Arriving and departing Victoria Falls
A lodge representative meets all guests at Livingstone International upon arrival, to transfer them in a private, air-conditioned minibus to River Lodge (45 - 50 minutes). Island Lodge is followed by a short boat trip (5 - 10 minutes). The transfer to Livingstone International Airport departs each lodge according to flight times. We can also collect guests from Kasane Airport (BBK) and Victoria Falls Airport (VFA) for an additional transfer cost.
