There is nothing quite like the heart-pounding sensation of actually standing on the edge of these magnificent falls and being drenched by the never-ending spray...

For those that need a foreign language translation of the Tour of Victoria Falls, we recommend the audio guides which are available at the entrance to the National Park.

But no matter how you decide to visit “The Smoke That Thunders” very few people are ever really prepared for the incredible beauty and mesmerizing strength and power of the mighty Victoria Falls.

The heart-pounding sensation of actually standing on the edge of the precipice above the raging Zambezi waters is something quite unforgettable.

Spray from the pounding water rises more than 60 feet into the air before tumbling down to create 24 hours of solid rain...

The Falls are literally at the end of the main street through the town center. Of course, the ever-present 'Smoke' (rising spray) will very soon have you orientated as to its location. It is a very walkable distance from the town center and closer hotels (see our map) – Please bear in mind that in summer at mid-day it can get very, very hot.

The edge of the falls is reached through the cool, moist tunnels of the rainforest. Always shrouded in a fine spray, the forest is a fairyland of exotic plants thriving in the humidity. Concrete paths, (the only obvious man-made intrusions since Livingstone's day) have been made to stop sightseers trampling away the lip of the gorge.

Parts of the precipice opposite the falls have been cleared of undergrowth to give a clear view, but the falls can also be seen from the depths of the forest through glistening, dripping, spray-soaked leaves.

Early morning is a magic time to see the falls, as the sun rises it tints the plumes of spray pink and gold. There is a statue of David Livingstone (Sculptured by Sir William Reid-Dick) on the western end of the chasm, over looking the Devils Cataract.

You will also find a set of stairs going down to a view point called the “Chain Walk”– where you will be able to look into the Devils Cataract – I would say this is definitely well worth doing and is personally one of my favourite places to enjoy the view on the tour of Victoria Falls.

A surreal and magical night experience awaits those who are lucky enough to plan their Victoria Falls trips to coincide with the full moon. For three nights each month (one on either side of the actual full moon date), the Rainforest is open for a dramatic lunar rainbow – a rare natural phenomenon (also known as a moonbow or lunar bow or white rainbow) produced by the moon rather than the sun (a solar rainbow).
