Victoria Falls Accommodation

These immense and awe-inspiring falls are known to the local Kololo people as the 'Mosi-oa-Tunya' or Smoke Which Thunders'. The official, and more common name for this breathtaking spectacle is Victoria Falls, named by David Livingstone in 1885 when he 'discovered' them. The 2km gorge is spanned by the Victoria Falls Bridge, which was commissioned by Cecil John Rhodes. The bridge was completed by 1905, but unfortunately Rhodes never lived to see it complete. It now provides easy access between Zambia and Zimbabwe on the other side of the gorge. The bridge has an amazing view of the Falls and the black shiny basalt rocks opposite, on which sits a lush green mist-soaked rain forest. One special vantage point is the Knife Edge Bridge, which affords views of the eastern cataract, the main falls, and Boiling Pot, where the river turns into the Batoka Gorge. We have decided to only feature properties on the Zambian side of the falls. It is possible to cross into Zimbabwe for the day, and view the falls from both sides. Most activities take place on the Zambian side, such as the helicopter trips, micro light flights, abseiling and white water rafting. In the evenings you can take a sunset cruise on the river or go game viewing, or during the day, paddle yourself in canoes on the Zambezi. At certain times of the year it is possible to walk on the falls when water has almost ceased to flow. Zambia is also home to some spectacular game viewing, charming and unspoilt, it offers you another perspective with unique opportunities for walking safaris. Reserves such as South Luangwa are considered to be one of Africa's finest wildlife sanctuaries. We will be happy to suggest an itinerary which incorporates a Zambian Safari (on foot or from the comfort of a safari vehicle!)
