Why You Should Visit Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe & Zambia

We recently visited Victoria Falls in both Zimbabwe and Zambia this past December and cannot wait to go back. It is without a doubt one of the most beautiful places we have ever visited, and we highly recommend it. We stayed in a beautiful hotel in Zimbabwe overlooking Victoria Falls and Zambia in the background. Victoria Falls is one of the greatest attractions in Africa, and one of the most spectacular waterfalls in the world. It is also considered to be the largest fall in the world. The Falls is located on the Zambezi River, the fourth largest river in Africa, and the defining border between Zambia and Zimbabwe. It is also called Mosi-o-Tunya “The smoke that thunders” by local tribes. The Falls was named after Queen Victoria by David Livingstone, a Scottish missionary who discovered this breathtaking waterfall in 1855. This extraordinary place is filled with so much history and allure.

Zimbabwe and Zambia are beautiful countries, and Victoria Falls is quite tranquil even with thousands of tourists from all over the world visiting annually. Victoria Falls is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and the citizens of both Zambia and Zimbabwe are successfully developing tourism on both sides of the Zambezi River. The park at Victoria Falls is quite large so plan on spending at least two hours soaking in the greatness of this park. We recommend that you get there early to avoid the heat and crowds. You will also need a raincoat and a waterproof camera if you travel between April and June as you will be drenched in the spray from the Falls, which creates a lasting downpour.
