Destination: Victoria Falls

Victoria Falls Holidays

The Victoria Falls are a sight to behold, and when you’re there, you don’t want to miss out on anything. That’s why African Safari Portfolio offers all inclusive packages that combining  the falls with safari destinations in Southern Africa  Victoria Falls is situated on the Zambezi River at the border between Zambia and Zimbabwe and is also known as ‘The Smoke That Thunders’, from its  indigenous name Mosi-oa-Tuny ( The Smoke That Thunders) . The Falls are  well connected to other destinations with direct flights to Cape Town,  Johannesburg , Kruger and short road transfers to the Chobe National Park in Botswana.

We take care of everything—from your flight connections to your accommodation—so you can focus on the experience itself. You’ll have access to a wide range of activities, from helicopter rides over the falls or rafting trips down their gorge to walking tours around town (or even a bit of bungee jumping!).

If you’re looking for an ideal family vacation or a romantic getaway with your significant other, Victoria Falls is an excellent choice. It’s easily combinable with other African destinations for those looking for a longer trip, too!

Frequently Asked Questions

Victoria Falls is a year round destination. If you want to go during the best time to see the falls, high water is between the months of January and June  with March/April being the peak. This is one of the best times to see the Falls  from the air, as the spray is thick with amazing rainbows.

If you want to swim to Devil’s Pool, the pool is accessible during the drier  months of the year, usually between August/September and  December/January.

Summer is from around October to April and it gets quite hot – above 30°C in  the day with warm nights.

Both sides of the falls have plenty of high quality accommodation options catering to all budgets and needs. The first thing to think about is ‘low water’  or ‘high water’. Low water is between August and January – this is when there  is very little spray and you can really see the Falls’ formation. This is  also when you are able to swim in Devil’s Pool, the thrilling experience of  swimming in a rock pool right on the edge of the Falls, on the Livingstone  side. During the very dry months, from mid-September to December, the Falls on the Zambian side dries up and this usually sways people to stay on the Zimbabwean side as it flows throughout the year.

We would suggest at least a 2 night stay with 2 day’s available for activities and sightseeing. Victoria Falls is very well connected with daily flights from  Johannesburg, regular flights to the Kruger National Park and Cape Town and a  short road transfer to the Chobe National Park in Botswana.

Victoria Falls is a low risk malaria area and precautions should be taken.
