The world's largest waterfall can be seen from both the Zimbabwean and Zambian sides. Although wildlife roams this area don't think of it as a real safari. It's rather a great place to spend a few days relaxing before or after your main safari - spa treatments, river cruises, fishing, craft markets, cultural tours, awesome range of adventure activities, and of course viewing the falls. Camps are lux, with pools, a/c and other indulgences. Zimbabwe/Zambia.
Best time: Can be done any time of year. From February - June the water is at it's peak, but July & August there's less spray so visibility is better. September to December the falls are low, but you can see into the gorge & more adventure activities are open.
Access: International airports on both sides - Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe or Livingstone in Zambia - link to Joburg, Kruger and other places. Charter hub for safaris into the region in the dry months.
