Located on the Zambezi River, Victoria Falls is claimed to be the largest waterfall in the world. The waterfall’s indigenous name, Mosi-oa-Tunya (the Mist that Thunders) gives a much better idea of its grandeur than the name given to it by English explorers. Victoria Falls is approximately 5,600 feet wide and 60 feet high.
If you are lucky enough to visit Victoria Falls at night, by the light of a full moon, you may even see a “moonbow,” a rainbow in the dark. Moonbows are caused by the light of a full moon reflecting off the spray of the falls. They are very rare, and Victoria Falls is one of the few locations on earth where they happen with any frequency.
You can visit Victoria Falls either through the Zambia side or the Zimbabwe side. Zambia visas can be obtained in advance or on arrival, although if you are traveling that far, it’s not a bad idea to make sure that all of your paperwork is in order before you go. Here’s what you need to get a Zambia tourist visa:
- 2 completed Zambia visa application forms
- 3 passport-sized photos. You must sign your name on the back of each photo you submit.
- A copy of your round-trip itinerary or round-trip tickets.
- If you are staying with family or friends in Zambia, you need a visitor visa. To get one of these, you will also need a letter of invitation from the person you are staying with.
