Victoria Falls Tours by Victoria Safaris
The Victoria Falls also known by the local communities as Mosi-oa-Tunya (The Smoke that Thunders) is a waterfall located in southern Africa on the Zambezi River.The falls are some of the largest in the world.The Victoria Falls, lying in between Zambia and Zimbabwe in Southern Africa are a spectacular sight of awe-inspiring beauty and grandeur on the Zambezi River. These Falls are over (1.7 km) 1 mile wide and 108m high in terms of size. The Victoria falls are part of two national parks, Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park in Zambia and Victoria Falls National Park in Zimbabwe. Columns of spray can be seen from kilometers away as 546 million cubic meters of water per minute plummet over the edge over a width of nearly two kilometers into a deep gorge over 100m below.
Viewing Seasons of Victoria Falls
The best time to view the Victoria Falls is during the rainy season from February to May, when they are at their most impressive with a peak in April characterized with flooding. During this season, it becomes hard to see the foot of the falls and most of its face, similarly the walks along the cliff opposite are in constant shower and shrouded in mist
During the dry season, you can take a walk along the lip of the Falls themselves. Now the water is low enough to walk all the way across to Livingstone Island, the site where David Livingstone had his first glance of the Falls. This is surely one of the most magnificent views in the area. Also in the dry season, the islets on the crest become wider and more numerous; in September to January up to half of the rocky face of the falls become dry and the bottom of the First Gorge can be seen.
