Best Hotels near Victoria Falls

Victoria Falls, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World, forms the border between Zambia and Zimbabwe. Receiving it’s local name from the Kololo tribe living in the area in the 1800’s, Victoria Falls are also known as ‘Mosi-oa-Tunya’, or ‘The Smoke that Thunders’.

You’ll notice the columns of spray from miles away, with the most impressive water flow occurring during February and March when as much as 540 million cubic meters of water fall over the edge every single minute. During this rainy season, however, the spray plume can obscure the view of the actual falls. By November, when the water flow is at a low point, is a better time to view the curtain of water as it splits into many smaller channels of falling water.

Many of our safari guests include Victoria Falls on their itinerary, and for good reason. Not only is this an impressive sight to see, but with plenty of fantastic accommodation options in and around Victoria Falls it’s a comfortable and worthy place to spend a few nights.
