One of Africa's top travel icons, Victoria Falls is an awe
inspiring sight on the Zambezi River between Zimbabwe and Zambia.

first European expressions of delight with his quotation: "scenes
so lovely must had been gazed upon by angels in their
Superlatives aside. The Victoria Falls World Heritage
Site has the largest curtain of falling water on the
planet with plumes of spray rising 800m and visible from 50km away
when in full spate. The small town is a magnet for adrenaline
junkies after extreme rafting, bungee jumping and the huge variety
of local activities on both sides of the Zambezi.
More importantly it's a simple flight from the international
hubs in Johannesburg and Cape Town and easy access into the main
safari centres in Zimbabwe, Zambia, Botswana and Namibia makes it
southern Africa's most important hub

destination in its own right, but better still Victoria Falls is an obvious inclusion for any real
safari in the region.
