It's not called the adventure capital of Africa for nothing! From bungee jumping to white river rafting, there are a myriad of activities to keep everyone happy, as well as some gentler pursuits...

While it is neither the highest nor the widest waterfall in the world, it is the largest. This claim is based on a width of 1,708 metres (5,604 ft) and height of 108 metres (354 ft), forming the largest sheet of falling water in the world.

David Livingstone, the Scottish missionary and explorer, was the first European to view the Victoria Falls — which he did from what is now known as 'Livingstone Island' in Zambia, the only land accessible in the middle of the falls. David Livingstone gave the falls the name 'Victoria Falls' in honour of his Queen, but the indigenous name of 'Mosi-oa-Tunya' — literally meaning the 'Smoke that Thunders' — is also recognised on The World Heritage List. Speak to one of our team about the activities available at the Victoria Falls.

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.
