After hotel pickup in Livingstone, head to Victoria Falls to begin your walking tour around this World Heritage–listed waterfall on the Zambezi River, forming the border between Zambia and Zimbabwe. The falls are spectacular at any time of year, whether high season (April to August), with curtains of spray and roaring water, or low season (September to March), when you can stare down the rock face between trickles of water to the bottom, where fish swim below the Knife-edge Bridge.
Known by the Kololo people as Mosi-oa-Tunya, ‘The Smoke that Thunders,’ Victoria Falls is the world's largest sheet of falling water, even though it's not the widest or tallest waterfall. During your time here, visit a vantage point across the Knife-edge Bridge for a view of the Eastern Cataract and the Main Falls, as well as the Boiling Pot, where the river turns and heads down Batoka Gorge. Other vantage points include Victoria Falls Bridge, Devil's Pool, and other Lockout points, which provides panoramic views across the Main Falls.
