Africa Safari: Victoria Falls
We offer a variety of Victoria Falls Tours whereby you could visit Vic Falls Zambia or Vic Falls Zimbabwe. Many travellers have always wanted to do a tour to Victoria Falls, but have worries around the political situation at the Victoria Falls Zimbabwe side, stopping them from enjoying their time. Journey into Africa wants to let you know that Victoria Falls can be seen from either the town of Victoria Falls on the Zimbabwe side or just over the border in Livingstone, on the Zambia side. The views are just as spectacular on the Livingstone side and you will not have any trouble with travel insurance or unnecessary worry regarding the political climate, making it an ideal addition to a safari in Zambia. At Journey Into Africa Tours and Safaris, we always put the safety of our clients first, and therefore we have specially adapted packages to make sure you get to visit one of the 'Seven Natural Wonders of the World' while staying in superb Victoria Falls accommodation. Our three day Victoria Falls tour departs from OR Tambo International Airport in Johannesburg and returns there at the conclusion. This also makes it a simple addition to most of our other Africa Safaris.
The Victoria Falls is one of the greatest attractions on the planet as it offers the largest curtain of falling water in the world, stretching an amazing 1708m across. The falls are best viewed during the winter dry season, but are visible all year round. From September to November, the views are the clearest with the most rock showing. Between April and May, when the flow is the greatest, views are misty and in windy conditions the gorge is perpetually spanned by rainbows. In midsummer, the humidity can become a bit much with the rains both hard and frequent.
The official language spoken in the Vic Falls area is English. Malaria tablets must be taken, especially during the summer months (November to May). Yellow Fever certificates may be required if arriving from infected areas. Bilharzia should be taken seriously, so avoid swimming in dams and rivers as you travel to Victoria Falls. If you are canoeing and cannot avoid the water, towel-off as soon as possible. The tap water is safe to drink - it is only necessary to boil/purify water in remote areas. The currency in Zambia is the Zambian Kwacha while on the Zimbabwe side you will be able to make use of South African Rand and US Dollars. American Express, Diners Club and Visa are widely accepted, whilst MasterCard has a more limited use.
