The Victoria Falls is one of the greatest natural wonders in the world and is a world heritage site. It is the largest falling curtain of water on earth, almost 2 kilometres wide that fall 300 meters into the gorge below. To view the falls is simply breathtaking. With spectacular scenery, sun-downer cruises, nearby game lodges and its close proximity to some of Africa’s best game parks, its no wonder that the Victoria Falls is one of Southern Africa’s top destinations.
The Victoria Falls has always been a top Honeymoon destination. With the beauty of the magnificent waterfalls and the mighty Zambezi River dotted with remote little island hideaways and luxury lodges and hotels that line the river banks the Victoria Falls is the perfect setting for a Africa Honeymoon or a romantic getaway.
The local people refer to the Victoria Falls as “Mosi-oa-Tunya”—“The smoke that thunders”. There is something almost surreal about the falls, as the powerful Zambezi River flows through the rainforest and then suddenly plunges into the Zambezi gorge below in a breathtaking display of several waterfalls. Mist from the waterfalls can be seen over 20 kilometres away, and the thundering roar can be heard long before the falls are in sight.
The famous explorer David Livingstone, who named the falls after the British Queen Victoria, was so mesmerised on seeing the falls that he stated “scenes so lovely must have been gazed upon by angels in flight”. This has led to the so-called “Flight of angels” which is to fly over the falls, and experience the spectacular views from above. The Victoria Falls forms the border between Zimbabwe and Zambia, and should definitely be included on any itinerary to Southern Africa.
With breathtaking views of the mighty Zambezi River and only a short distance away from the mesmeric Victoria Falls, The River Club located on the Zambian side of the Zambezi River, is the place to stay whilst viewing the Victoria Falls.
