Most travellers go to Victoria Falls for one particular reason: to see the overpowering waterfalls, over a hundred metres deep and almost a staggering two kilometres wide. As fascinating as they are – and surprisingly not too touristy – there is a lot more to see in and around this small town in the northwest of Zimbabwe.
If you don’t feel like doing much and just want to have a beer or a pizza, go to one of the cool hangouts in town or take a ride in a traditional tram across Victoria Falls Bridge. Be aware after dark, however, it is not uncommon that a small herd of buffalo might cross the road, or a lioness is snoozing in the bushes.
This doesn’t come as a surprise: Zambezi National Park is right at your door step and explorers can venture out to spot wildlife on a scintillating game drive. The ‘wild factor’ of Victoria Falls doesn’t stop here though; our favourite experiences in the area all happen on and on the banks of the Zambezi River, home to humongous hippopotamus and creepy crocodiles. Watch the sunset on a dinner cruise, cook your own traditional Southern African dish in a cooking class or float down the Zambezi in a raft boat – you might even spot elephants splashing in the background.
