The Ultimate Travel Guide to Victoria Falls

Are you daydreaming about escaping the cold winter weather for warmer climates? Sure you are.

Then put the majestic Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe on the top of your getaway list. I shared the highlights of my family's road trip to the falls here. Victoria Falls is at the top of my mind right now as I am planning my family's summer vacation. Did I mention that I'm going home {Zimbabwe} this summer!

The Victoria Falls known locally as Mosi-Oa-Tunya which means "the smoke that thunders". Boy does it thunder especially during the rainy season. This amazing geographic sight is located on the Zambezi river, straddling the border between Zimbabwe and Zambia. It is one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the world and the world's largest stretch of uninterrupted falling water.

“Scenes so lovely must have been gazed upon by Angels in their flight” said David Livingstone when he first saw the falls. The beauty of the Falls have since captivated many more visitors. Victoria Falls is actually made up of a series of waterfalls, four of which are on the Zimbabwe side (Devils’s Cataract, Main Falls, Rainbow Falls and Horseshoe Falls) and one on the Zambia side (The Eastern Cataract).
