Cuisine

Victoria Falls offers a blend of traditional African and international cuisines, reflecting its status as a global tourist hotspot. Visitors can expect to savour dishes made from game meat like kudu, warthog, and crocodile, accompanied by staple sides like sadza (a maize porridge) or nshima (similar to sadza but typical in Zambia).

Local fish, such as bream from the Zambezi River, is another delicacy. Traditional relishes, often vegetable-based, complement these main dishes. For the adventurous palate, mopane worms, a regional delicacy, are a must-try.

Moreover, the influence of British colonial history means that teas, scones, and other European treats are readily available.

Overall, the cuisine around Victoria Falls offers a delightful fusion of indigenous flavours and international tastes.

Best Time To Visit

Between February and May, right after the region’s summer rains, the falls are at their most majestic. The sheer volume of water is immense, offering spectacular views and a thunderous roar. This peak flow can result in a heavy mist, which might obscure visibility but creates a magical atmosphere.

From June to August, water levels begin to decrease, revealing more of the rock face and allowing for clearer views. This period offers an ideal balance between water volume and visibility.

September to January sees the lowest water levels. While the falls are less dramatic, activities like white-water rafting become more exciting due to the river’s lower and faster flow.

In essence, for dramatic views, visit after the rainy season. For water-based activities, consider the drier months. Each period offers a unique Victoria Falls experience.

Attractions

#1Natural Wonder of the World

Victoria Falls, known locally as “Mosi-oa-Tunya” (The Smoke That Thunders), is one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World. Stretching over 1.7 kilometres wide and plunging more than 100 metres, the falls present a mesmerising spectacle of nature’s might and beauty. The sight of a million litres of water cascading every second into the Zambezi Gorge, creating misty rainbows, is unparalleled.

#2Adrenaline-Packed Activities

For thrill-seekers, the region offers heart-pounding experiences. From white-water rafting on the tumultuous Zambezi River to bungee jumping off the Victoria Falls Bridge, there’s no shortage of adrenaline-charged activities. These adventures offer not only excitement but also unique vantage points from which to appreciate the falls and the surrounding landscape.

#3Zambezi River Cruises

Embarking on a sunset boat cruise on the Zambezi River offers a serene experience. It’s a chance to see wildlife, like hippos and crocodiles, while enjoying the river’s calm and the stunning backdrop of the setting sun. The golden hues of the African sunset, combined with the sound of the distant falls, make this a romantic and tranquil retreat.

#4Rich Wildlife

The national parks surrounding Victoria Falls, such as the Victoria Falls National Park and Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park, are home to a variety of wildlife. Elephants, buffalos, antelopes, and sometimes even predators can be spotted. The parks provide an excellent introduction to African wildlife and are more accessible than some of the continent’s more remote safari destinations.

#5Cultural Experiences

Victoria Falls is not just about natural beauty; it’s also a cultural hub. Interactions with local communities offer insights into the traditions, customs, and way of life of the region’s indigenous people. From tribal dances to craft markets, the rich heritage is palpable.

#6Flight of Angels

Named after David Livingstone’s quote where he surmised that the view of the falls must be what angels see in their flight, helicopter and microlight flights over Victoria Falls offer panoramic views of this majestic landmark and the winding Zambezi River. These flights provide a bird’s-eye view, ensuring you grasp the sheer scale and beauty of the falls.

#7Devil's Pool

During the drier months, the adventurous can take a swim in the naturally formed pool right at the edge of the falls. Located on the Zambian side, Devil’s Pool offers a thrilling and unique experience, where you can literally live on the edge, with the cascading falls just feet away.

#8Historic Bridge Tour

The Victoria Falls Bridge, connecting Zimbabwe and Zambia, is not just an engineering marvel but also a historic icon. Constructed in the early 20th century, this bridge became a symbol of colonial-era connectivity. Guided tours educate visitors about its construction, significance, and offer unparalleled views of the gorge below.

#9Tranquil Nature Walks

The rainforest around the falls is a lush sanctuary teeming with unique flora and fauna. Guided walks provide educational insights into the ecology of the region. The sound of the falls, combined with the diverse plant life and occasional animal sightings, makes for a revitalising connection with nature.

#10Unique Festivals and Events

Throughout the year, Victoria Falls hosts various events celebrating both its natural allure and cultural vibrancy. From the Victoria Falls Marathon to music festivals, these events offer another layer of attraction, allowing visitors to engage with the local community and experience the falls in a festive atmosphere.
