Angels in their flight! This is how David Livingstone described the breathtaking Victoria Falls, where five million cubic meters of water cascade over every minute during wet season.

Explore Victoria Falls on Your own
Discover the awe-inspiring beauty of Victoria Falls and its unique ecosystem on your own. Set off from your hotel for the Victoria Falls Rainforest and as you get closer to the Falls, see how the landscape changes! Arrive at the stunning spectacle of the largest sheet of falling water in the world. The Victoria Falls thunders from a height of more than one hundred meters over a width of nearly two kilometers – all the while pouring more than five hundred million cubic meters of water per minute down the gorge on Zambezi River. If you are lucky, you may be able to view the Falls enveloped in misty rainbows created by the effect of sunlight on the perpetual spray of water. After taking photos from the most dramatic vantage points, stroll around the site and enjoy its pristine beauty until it is time to head back to your hotel. (Full Day; No guide; No transfers; Entrance fees and meals are not included. Please wear appropriate footwear and clothing).

Explore additional activities in Victoria Falls on your own
Immerse yourself in the spectacular landscape of the Victoria Falls on the mighty Zambezi River. Enjoy a range of activities to get to know the region better. Take an exciting helicopter ride over the magnificent waterfall and watch the river waters plunge down in all their mist and glory. Get to know Africa’s gentle giants better at the elephant sanctuary and orphanage by the Masuwe River, near Victoria Falls. Enjoy a breakfast or a sunset cruise down the river on luxury river boats that ply the Zambezi River. Watch islands go by, spot wildlife by the river banks and soak in the tranquil ambience. Relax with refreshing sundowners on the outdoor deck of Buffalo Bar, overlooking the region’s waterholes, as you wait for elephant herds to join you for a sunset drink across the waters. Savor delicious luncheons or alfresco dinners at the popular restaurant, Lookout Cafe, while enjoying the fantastic panoramic view.
