The two countries 'share' the Falls, and are linked via a spectacular iron bridge suspended 100 metres above the raging waters below. There are two key national parks in the area for wildlife - on the Zambian side (and upstream from the Falls) is Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park. This is a small park with a chequered history, but which has a good range of wildlife. On the Zimbabwean side is Zambezi National Park, also with great wildlife.The Royal Livingstone Hotel HIGH The Royal Livingstone Hotel is opulent and it is without doubt the best place to view the falls. The luxurious rooms all have superb views of the river. There is a beautiful swimming pool and a large wooden platform beneath a shady tree which projects out over the Zambezi. perfect for sundowners!Zambia and ZimbabweIn focusVictoria Falls is frequently named as one of the world's top three waterfalls. The views are equally spectacular from both Zambia and Zimbabwe. Visitors follow a series of walkways where rainbows gleam through gaps in the dripping rainforest and occasional torrents of water are blown across the paths (especially in the green season). During the dry season months of June to October, water is concentrated into one section of the towering rock face of the gorge, and sometimes you can even walk across the rocks on the Zambian side to sit and wonder at the roaring spectacle. The Falls are at their peak around March and April, when the water and spray shower down on the walkways - it is so intense that you are guaranteed to get absolutely soaked, and the best views are from the air! All the properties we describe below offer visits to the Falls, river trips and excursions to the area's various activities.In fact, the entire area has become a centre for all kinds of outdoor activities, from simple game drives in the area's excellent parks to more adventurous and extreme sports of all kinds - elephant-back riding, canoeing, boating, white-water rafting and, of course, fl ying over the Falls by light aircraft, helicopter and even microlight!
