Victoria Falls Tour - Zambia

Learn about the Victoria Falls and everything that surrounds this great world wonder in a guided tour of the falls on the Zambian side

The walk across the bridge on Knife's Edge

The Victoria Falls are the largest waterfall in the world, and are shared between two countries Zimbabwe and Zambia and the views are quite different from both sides. On the Zambian side of the falls, the tour is shorter as only 30% of the Falls are viewable from Zambia but it is still very much worth the visit as the perspectives are quite different to Zimbabwe. The tours are available 7 days a week and last about 2 hours. The times of the tours are not set so you can request a suitable time when you make your booking. Morning tours will generally give you better rainbows but sunsets from the Zambian side are also spectacular.

On a guided Victoria Falls tour, you will learn how this magnificent world wonder was formed. You will also learn about the people who lived here over a century ago, and those that came to discover its existence and shared it with the world.

A path along the edge of the forest provides the visitor with an unparalleled series of views of the Falls. One special vantage point is across the Knife edge bridge, where visitors can have the finest view of the Eastern Cataract as well as the Boiling Pot where the river turns and heads down the Batoka Gorge. Other vantage points include the Knifes Edge bridge and the Lookout Tree.

Different times of the year will provide completely different experiences and views of the falls. During the high water months of January to July the spray from the falls is tremendous and a complete drenching is guaranteed. The absolute peak flood season is around March and April when the full power of the falls can be experienced in all its glory.

At it's lowest, around November and December the falls in Zambia become little rivulets running over the edge and in some places no water falls at all, this is when a dry rock face appears. During this time, it is best to view the Victoria Falls from the Zimbabwean side which still has a decent flow of water even in the dry season. See more about Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe here.

Fantastic Itinerary
by Graham & Janet (United Kingdom)
Dear Boo
We would like to offer our thanks for sorting a fantastic itinerary for our all too short visit to Vic Falls. The cruise on the Zambesi at sunset was a delight and the helicopter flight breathtaking! The pick ups were punctual and staff members were all very smiley, friendly, helpful and good company. The whole experience of the actual Falls and the town itself was outstanding.
We will return! Your company will be our first port of call. Many thanks for a very efficient service.
Best wishes
