Victoria Falls National Park

Overview

Victoria Falls National Park is a National Park located in the Hwange District of Zimbabwe in Southern Africa. The park is named after arguably one of the most famous waterfalls in the world, Victoria Falls. Victoria Falls is considered to be the largest waterfall in the world due to the immensity of its combined height and width measurements and has been named both a natural UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the seven natural wonders of the world.

The falls can be viewed from both of the countries which it exists between, both Zambia and Zimbabwe. Victoria Falls’ width is measured at 5,604 ft. and its height is measured at 304 ft. The river which supplies the water to the falls is the Zambezi River which experiences a seasonal flooding period between February and May. Victoria Falls collectively consists of five separate falls, one existing in Zambia and the other four in Zimbabwe.

The falls in Zambia are known as the Eastern Cataract Falls and the four in Zimbabwe are the Main Falls, Rainbow Falls, Horseshoe Falls, and the Devil’s Cataract Falls. Victoria Falls National Park protects these falls along with the surrounding area including a rainforest and the south and east banks of the Zambezi River. The rain forest area within Victoria Falls National Park allows visitors to experience the unique vegetation on a trail known as the Zambezi Walkway, showcasing the vibrant bird and wildlife as well as incredible views of the falls themselves. The rainforest consists of many different plant and lower types including fruit-bearings trees, water broom trees, various tropical plants and African ebony trees. Hippopotami, elephant, baboon and buffalo are just a few of the many animal species that can be seen within the park. Along with walking trails a wide variety of activities are offered in and around Victoria Falls National Park including white water rafting, helicopter flights, horseback riding, and bungee jumping.

Victoria Falls National Park Tips

• Don’t miss the best spot for a picturesque photo opportunity. As you enter Victoria Falls, keep going straight and walk toward the David Livingstone statue.
• Protect your phone and electronic equipment as it will get wet! A waterproof pouch is the best option if you want to take pictures with your phone.
• You will get drenched if you visit the falls in May, so perhaps bring a raincoat or umbrella. However, it probably won’t help! It’s so much fun running through the spray, so just relax and enjoy the moment.
• The paths are easy to follow and you don’t need a guide – unless you want a personal photographer or are looking for more in-depth information on Victoria Falls.
• Follow all the paths to the end as there are many beautiful rainbows formed from the spray.
