Know More about this tour

Choose from a morning or afternoon tour, and then start your tour with a pickup from your centrally located Victoria Falls hotel. On your way to the falls, stop on the banks of the Zambezi River for a photo op next to 'The Big Tree' an impressive baobab that is believed to be more than 1,000 years old.

Continue by minibus to the rainforest that fringes Victoria Falls, and then set off on a walk along the lush trails while learning all about the world-famous waterfall. Listed as one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World, the waterfall is also known as Mosi-oa-Tunya, meaning smoke that thunders in Kololo. The name resonates: you can see the mist of the roaring falls from some 20 miles (32 km) away.

As you explore the pretty rainforest trails that surround the falls, marvel at the sight of the Zambezi River plunging down a series of basalt gorges. At roughly 1.2 miles (2 km) wide and 360 feet (108 m) tall, Victoria Falls is one of the worlds largest waterfalls approximately twice the size of Niagara Falls.

Look out for Livingstones Statue that looks out over the Devils Cataract a natural pool that marks the lowest point of the falls and learn about the monument's namesake, David Livingstone. The intrepid explorer brought Victoria Falls to the worlds attention when he stumbled upon them in 1855. Instantly stunned by the falls grandeur, he decided to name them after Queen Victoria.

After two hours of exploring the rainforest trails around the waterfall, return to your coach and finish your tour with a hotel drop-off.

  • Ok tour, the guide didn't really inform us very much about the falls and was rather like our personal camera man. He was very nice though.

  • You could do it on your own and save yourself the fee.

  • Shammy was a great guide. Very informative and fun to spend time with. The sights and sounds of the falls are amazing. Was good to have guide with us to point out different viewpoints and take us into the market in town when we were done with the tour.

  • A worthwhile introductory tour. Expect to get wet. Make sure you walk across the bridge to Zambia for even more stunning views visa for Zambia not required for bridge access only. This tour included Park admission, so we save 30pp! Complimentary rain ponchos were provided.

  • When we first got to Zimbabwe and learned that we could do the walking tour of the falls on our own, we were angry that we had booked a guided walking tour online. After the experience, all I can say to you is that IT IS WORTH IT!

    VERY IMPORTANT: For some reason, after you book the tour through Viator your e-voucher will say that it does not include the 30USD park entrance fee. This is not the case. The 60 INCLUDES THE PARK FEES, so keep that in mind if it seems expensive!

    Our guide, Shamiso, was AMAZING. He spent 3.5 hours with us on a walking tour that should have taken 1.5-2 hours we were enjoying ourselves that much. He gave excellent background information on the falls and at each viewing point, took excellent pictures for us, and was fine to wait for about 15 minutes at the bridge viewing point for us to watch someone bungee jump. His positive energy was contagious this is a guy who, for many years has given at least 2 tours a day of the falls, and is still taking his own photos and excited to share information with visitors. After the tour, he offered to stop in town if we needed anything a huge plus since our hotel was a few miles away from town and could only be reached via an hourly shuttle. We had briefly mentioned to him that we never had a chance to see the Victoria Falls Hotel, and he took is straight over there on our way home, walked us through the grounds, and took a few photos of us as well. The guided tours also provide raincoats, which is a MUST if you dont want to be soaked. Overall, an excellent experience with an amazing tour guide.

  • The first time I went to Vic Falls in 2014 I didn't use a guide. It was sooo much better this time with the Walking Tour. Our guide was attentive, knowledgeable, and very funny...perfect tour!!!

  • Breath taking. The guide was experienced and excellent. A bit dear though with park charges

  • Rating would have been higher if there we hadn't experience difficulties with the second reservation of the same group. Tour Guide could not find the second reservation and so had to pay again which dampened the mood. Not sure if this was viators fault or the tour guide.

  • Pünktliche Abholung, guter Guide, sehr schöner Weg entlang den Fällen.

  • Great tour and guide was great. Due to safety precautions, we did not see the falls from the Zimbabwe side so pre-check with your guide. In either case, I still was able to experience great views of the falls and have no regrets.
