Victoria Falls Activities
Everyone is catered for out here in the self-styled adventure capital of Africa. The only problem is choosing what to do so here's an abbreviated list of the most popular activities in and around Victoria Falls.
Explore Victoria Falls from Zimbabwe and Zambia
Crossing over the picturesque bridge that spans the Batoka Gorge, you can explore the falls at leisure from both sides of the Zambezi River.
Highlights on the Zimbabwe side include the rain forest, which is a protected sanctuary of ancient fig and mahogany trees alive with birds and small mammals; Devil's Cataract, where the formation of the next falls is slowly taking place; the Main Falls, in flow all year; Horseshoe Falls; and Rainbow Falls, suitably picturesque and a must at full moon when you can stay in the park after dark.
From the Zambia side of the falls, the Eastern Cataract, in flow during mid to peak water levels, provides a magnificent view along the gorge. Explore the falls from above at Livingstone Island and the Devil's Pools; below at the Boiling Pot; and astride at Danger Point, Chain Walk and Knife Edge.
These activities are only available as add-ons to our itineraries. We are not a registered activity bureau and cannot cannot make independent bookings.
Most Victoria Falls Activities can be booked on arrival at your lodge or hotel but we recommend you talk to our Travel Experts about what is available and what you want to do. Some options are seasonal or water-level dependent and some are best booked in advance.

Look. There. Miles in the distance. What is that? It sure ain’t no fire burning. No smoke on the water. It’s mist. Deep, deep, misty mist. With the river running through it. But it’s no babbling brook. No siree. It’s so noisy the Kololo called it Mosi-oa-Tunya, ‘the smoke that thunders’. Sheesh, what a racket.
