One of the 7 Wonders of the Natural World and the world's largest sheet of falling water

If you track the path of the mighty Zambezi you will find Mosi-oa-Tunya, ‘the smoke that thunders’. One of the seven natural wonders of the world and a UNESCO World Heritage site, Victoria Falls is a tribute to the power and splendour of nature. This falling sheet of water is the largest in the world and cascades down a riverine canyon producing an incredible roar and plume of mist that gives way to rainbows. With experiences revolving around natural swimming pools on the edge of the falls, white water rafting, mesmerising vistas and exquisite stays, Victoria Falls is a truly unmissable destination with something memorable for everyone.

Best time to go to Victoria Falls

Acceptable
When visiting Victoria Falls, an important factor to consider is the water level of the falls. Water levels are highest from May to August, offering great visibility of the falls, but the absolutely perfect time is June and July. The water levels start to lower in August up to March, and this is when white water rafting is available. During the rainy season, the falls can be completely obscured by mist, from about November to March, while the dry season, from April to October, is great for game viewing in the area.
