The Victoria Falls Tour - Zambia
Mosi-oa-Tunya (The Smoke that Thunders) is a 1,750 metre Curtain of Water Cascading over a 100m drop
When to tour Victoria FallsMay to August offers the best compromise between a flow rate which impresses with its sheer power, and the falls not being completely obscured by spray
During high water visitors can get wet at the Falls and cameras
should be sealed in plastic bags.
Few other waterfalls allow such a close approach on foot
During peak flow (February to May) the Zambian side of the Falls is the most spectacular on foot
There are walkways to look out points and across the swaying Knife Edge bridge. The spray on the Zimbabwe side at this time (February to May) makes it difficult to see anything on foot, but this changes with the seasons
From May onwards as the annual flood abates,
the view of Victoria falls gets better and better and photographic opportunities
from the Rain Forest path in Zimbabwe improve.
Rainforest: Around the Falls is a rainforest sustained by the spray of the Falls with some plant species rarely found elsewhere in Zambia or Zimbabwe.
Somewhere, over the moonbow: The spray can be seen for miles, and on a clear, bright, moonlit night it forms something called a “Moonbow "— reputedly one of the most beautiful natural phenomena on the planet. The best time to see Victoria Falls, moonbow is during a full Moon and when the spray is high ( Jan to July )
