Top things to do at the Vic Falls

Having fun and finding things to do that get your adrenaline rushing at Victoria Falls is as easy as spotting rushing water.

Here are some top things to do to get the adrenaline flowing through your veins in both Zambia and Zimbabwe.

White water rafting

Two things are guaranteed when you go white water rafting at the Victoria Waterfalls; you will get wet and you will remember it for the rest of your life. Rafting trips are run by highly professional operators. You have a choice between low water (August to early January) and high water (January to March, May to July) trips.

The low water trip is the more exciting option, but requires a bit more rafting experience, as lower water levels means higher thrill levels.

Tandem kayaking

Kayaking in the Zambezi is just as exciting, but you might feel a bit safer with a guide doing the steering work. You don’t need any experience for paddling the rapids and you’ll feel like you have successfully conquered the great river below Vic Falls!

Upper Zambezi canoeing

The canoe trail operates above Victoria Falls and is ideal for those who want to experience the tranquil side of the river. The upper Zambezi is regarded as free flowing because it is not controlled by the dam. This means that the water is subject to seasonal variation. In English, it means that the route varies as new channels open with the rise of the water levels.

Lion Encounters

It takes only one hour to add another amazing experience to your Vic Falls visit. No leashes or collars, the pride runs freely with you through the bush. You may even be lucky enough to experience the young cubs on a stalk on some of the wildlife species that occur on the property.

Elephant back safaris

Enjoy a very alternative, very adventurous ride through the wilderness. Ride on the back of the largest animal in Africa while observing other wild animals, such as zebra and wildebeest. The ride is approximately one hour long and overall interaction with the animal is about three hours.
