The Best Things to See & Do at Victoria Falls - Explore the Adventure Capital of Africa

Whether you are an intrepid adventurer, a raging adrenaline junkie, or a couple looking forward to lounge in a romantic setting, Victoria Falls has something to offer for all tastes and types. It is well worth spending several days to soak up the awe-inspiring beauty of this land of paradise.


Behold Victoria Falls

Admiring the magnificent views of the main falls undoubtedly tops the list of things to do in Victoria Falls. It is declared as a UNESCO World Heritage site as well as one of the seven Natural Wonders of the World, which you will feel so obvious as soon as you see the wide sheet of flowing water for yourself.


Plunge into Devil's Pool

The Devil's Pool will not only offer you the chance to take a dip at the very edge of Victoria Falls but also gives you the perfect vantage point to take in the breathtaking views of the falls. Peering into the massive gorge and watching the water tumble down is, without a doubt, an exhilarating experience that you should definitely try out at Victoria Falls.


Go white water rafting on the Zambezi river

Not one for the faint-hearted, but white water rafting on the Zambezi river is one of the most thrilling activities you can do during your holiday in Victoria Falls. The intense rapids of the river will keep you on the edge of your seat, but the route also has a few calm stretches where you can take in the mesmerizing views of the gorge.


Explore the historical town of Livingstone

Livingstone is the quaint little town that acts as the gateway to Zambia's many prominent tourist attractions, such as Victoria Falls. Preserving much of its colonial buildings and structures, Livingstone offers a relaxing atmosphere for you to stroll along the streets and explore the town. If you are looking for a Livingstone hotel to spend your days in, there are many posh places for you to choose from, including the likes of the Royal Livingstone Hotel by Anantara.


Take a cruise down the Zambezi river

Cruise down the Zambezi river with a glass of wine in hand while enjoying the spectacular natural scenery in every direction. Make sure to board the cruise during the latter part of the day to witness the tranquil and gorgeous sunset. It can be described as the best way to wrap up any day in Victoria Falls. If you are lucky, you will be able to spot elephants crossing the river at sunset and other wildlife along the river banks.


Fly over the falls

Taking a helicopter ride over the falls can be described as the perfect way to admire the beauty of Victoria Falls. It is also the only way you can enjoy the views of the falls from both Zimbabwe and Zambian sides at the same time. If you love a good adrenaline rush, try micro-lighting over the falls instead of taking a helicopter ride.
