Highlights and main attractions of Livingstone and Victoria Falls
Seeing Victoria Falls is ultimately one of the most memorable experiences one can have. Experience the thunderous sounds of cascading water, surrounded by a dense mist hiding bright rainbows, whilst vervet monkeys swing lazily through the trees. This truly is one of the wonders of the world, and a must see for any safari-goes visiting southern Africa.
The unique geography of the area means you can experience the spectacular falls face on. The annual flood is between February and May, the peak time to see them being in April. This is when they are in full swing and the immensity of the waters power is absolutely breathtaking. Although there are also benefits to seeing the falls outside of these times. When the water is calmer, it is possible to visit the ‘Devil’s Pool’, aptly named we think.
A decade or so ago, Zimbabwe was the best side to see the magnificent Victoria Falls from, however the political dispute there put the Zambian side firmly on the map. Although Zimbabwe is now once again a fabulous place to see this awe-inspiring spectacle, Zambia has definitely burgeoned in popularity, making it a difficult choice between the two.
