Experience a Thrilling, Front-Row View of Africa’s Eden

Victoria Falls is part of the Zambezi River, which forms the border between Zimbabwe and Zambia. It’s the world’s largest sheet of falling water: as the Zambezi plummets down, the deafening roar of water reverberating off basalt gorges has earned it the name Mosi-oa-Tunya (‘The Smoke That Thunders’). The force’s descent is so powerful that the ground quakes, and a veil of mist sprays into the air, refracting the sunlight like a deity’s giant prism. Along with the falls, the area offers dramatic landscapes, bespoke experiences, and luxury safaris for discerning travelers.

In addition to the spectacular falls, the region offers bespoke experiences and luxurious safaris tailored to discerning travelers.

Indulge in the lavish comforts of a luxury safari lodge nestled within a private game reserve, such as the renowned Stanley & Livingstone Boutique Hotel. Immerse yourself in pure relaxation with in-suite spa treatments, and delight in a chandelier- or star-lit dinner paired with premium Cape wines. Alternatively, the five-star Victoria Falls River Lodge offers a secluded experience on a private river island. Elevated on private decks, the suites provide unparalleled wildlife views, plunge pools, and personalized butler service.

Victoria Falls is a destination for nature lovers and thrill-seekers alike. Zip-line over the Zambezi or experience a scenic bird’s-eye view of the falls by helicopter. Explore Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site with acacia and teak forests, and elephants, giraffes, lions, and leopards that roam its grasslands. Then, take in a private sunset river cruise, complete with gourmet food and champagne for an unforgettable experience — and a front-row view of Africa’s Eden.
