Victoria Falls is also known by the local Kololo tribe as Mosi oa Tunya the “Smoke that thunders”. It is the largest single curtain of falling water in the world. And 70% of the exquisite views are seen from the Zimbabwe rain forest.
The rain forest area near Victoria Falls is filled with many unique species of flora and fauna. One can wander among the Fig, Mahogany and Date Palm groves and enjoy spectacular views of the falls from many viewpoints long the paths.
The David Livingstone statue stands near the spectacular Devil’s Cataract viewpoint. On 16 November 1855, Livingstone (the first Western explorer to view the Falls) wrote in his journal: “…scenes so lovely must have been gazed on by angels in their flight.”
The best time to visit Victoria Falls is during the dry winter period from June to August/September. Expect great game viewing, warm days and cool nights, little to no rain and plenty of water still thundering over the precipice.
