Victoria Falls & Zimbabwe

David Livingstone explored this land of potent beauty and discovered one of the seven natural wonders of the world.

In his footprints, only moments away from the mighty Zambezi River with the dramatic torrent of the Victoria Falls as its natural milieu, the Victoria Falls was declared a World Heritage Site in 1989 as testament to his discovery.

Dr. Livingstone named the falls after Queen Victoria as a tribute to the English monarch. However, long before his “discovery” the Kololo people living in the area in the 1800’s described it as “Mosi-oa-Tunya” meaning “The Smoke that Thunders”.

Victoria Falls is an entirely separate entity from the rest of Zimbabwe when it comes to crime and safety.   Political violence or unrest does not exist here and we consider it to be a perfectly safe tourist destination.     As a town goes, there is always petty theft, and the threat of pick-pockets, so just be wary, keep alert and enjoy your visit.

The Zimbabwean people are always very friendly and appreciate any business which comes their way, having struggled to survive so long amidst political tensions throughout the rest of the country.
