Victoria Falls Safari Holidays
A Victoria Falls safari holiday is more than a magical show of the force of nature. Africa’s undisputed adventure capital, Victoria Falls Safaris tops the list for adrenaline junkies the world over with world renowned whitewater rafting, thrilling bungy jumping, hippo-dodging canoe trips, heart-stopping microlight flights … and the list goes on.
Victoria Falls has an impressive list of credentials; the widest curtain of falling water on earth, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of only seven natural wonders on the planet. Often, when there’s so much hype about a place, you prepare yourself for a slight let down. This is definitely not the case with Victoria Falls.
Imagine the impact of a river measuring nearly 2 km in width, becoming a fraction of that in a matter of seconds. This dramatically beautiful event is accompanied by a deafening roar and fine spray that arcs up into the sky, which explains the Falls’ local name, Mosi-oa-Tunya: the “Smoke that Thunders”.
Victoria Falls Holidays
Vic Falls has so much to offer that it’d be a shame not to visit it with your family. Victoria Falls family holidays have something to suit all ages – from elephant-back safaris to helicopter flips – along with a great selection of family- friendly accommodation on both sides of the Falls.
When planning your Victoria Falls safari holiday, it’s vital to take into consideration that the Falls look completely different in the dry season.
The best time to see Victoria Falls is from February to April, when the Zambezi River is at its most powerful. On the other hand whitewater rafting doesn’t occur when the Zambezi River is in full flood – so when you choose to travel should depend on your priorities.
There is a wide choice of Victoria Falls accommodation, ranging from luxurious villas on the banks of the Zambezi and safari lodges in private game reserves, to large colonial-style resorts within sight of Fall’s huge plume of spray.
