The Victoria Falls also known as the Mosi-oa-Tunya or the ‘smoke that thunders’ is also designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The falls are the most significant feature of the park, and when the Zambezi is in full flood (usually February or March) they form the largest curtain of falling water in the world. During these months, over 500 million litres of water per minute go over the falls, which are 1,708 m wide, and drop 99 m at Rainbow Falls in Zambia.

After a visit to the falls you can spend the rest of the day relaxing at your hotel.
