The awe-inspiring Victoria Falls is considered to be one of the greatest wonders of the world. It was described by the Kololo tribe living in the area in the 1800’s as ‘Mose-oa-Tunya’ – ‘The Smoke that Thunders’. Columns of spray can be seen from miles away as, at the height of the rainy season, more than five hundred million cubic meters of water per minute plummet over the edge, over a width of nearly two kilometers, into a gorge over one hundred meters below.
For the duration of 2017 we are running trips to the falls at $1100 per person. For the full tour details visit our Safari deals page.

A shuttle bus to the falls runs once a day, otherwise taxis and public buses are readily available.
