Spend 2 nights in Victoria Falls one of the Seven Wonders of the World. Victoria Falls are situated on the Zambezi River, which flows between Zimbabwe and Zambia, but Zimbabwe has always been the most popular access point. The force of the water sends a spray up into the air that can be seen from a 30 km (19 mile) distance. Due to its formation, excellent viewing of the fall is possible from many angles, making for great photographic opportunities. Victoria Falls is one of the world's most beautiful and romantic destinations. Designated a protected World Heritage Site, it is one of the few waterfalls in the world where one can witness up close the spectacular sight of over 550 million litres (145 million gallons) of water barrelling down a 2.5 km (1.5 mile) wide precipice.
Since its “discovery” by Scottish missionary and explorer Dr. David Livingstone in 1855, the Victoria Falls has attracted travellers from far and wide in search of adventure and discovery. Its exceptional scenery and elegant hotels have made it a favourite with honeymooners and those looking for a romantic getaway. The town of Victoria Falls is a traveller’s delight, with loads of adrenalin-packed adventures, beautiful attractions, restaurants and hotels. Renowned as a World Heritage Site, this region also boasts great game viewing in the pristine reserves surrounding the fall.
