Make Your Break Count this Year!

Victoria Falls

The festive period might be finished but that doesn’t mean you have to wait until next year for a splash of excitement! The Lonely Planet has released its top 10 destinations to visit in 2014 and the iconic Victoria Falls have made the cut. The two kilometre-wide lip of the Falls sees an astonishing 500 cubic litres thundering over it into the 100 metre gorge below, sending spray as high as 500 metres into the air! Recognised as one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World and one of the largest waterfalls on Earth, this magnificent formation is undoubtedly one of the most incredible natural sights on the planet and well deserving of its place in the top 10!

See the mighty Victoria Falls on any of our Safaris in Zimbabwe and combine the sight of a lifetime with a search for some of the continent’s best wildlife.
