The Victoria Falls is one of the best places in Africa one could ever desire to visit and in my recommendation as a travel agent, I rank it very high.
Great variety of accommodation types on both the Zambia and Zimbabwe side - great choice of food and restaurants and nothing beats the activities at Victoria Falls. We have an endless range of packages, including flights, with accommodation and transfers as a starter pack. Let me put something together that will really get you excited ! Generally from South Africa ( Johannesburg ) flights may be cheaper into Livingstone ( Zambia ) rather than Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe. Remember a Yellow Fever Innoculation will be required to visit the Zambian side only.
Some great hotel choices are listed below - note this is by no means the only hotels we sell at the Victoria Falls - these are only the more popular samples we actually sell.

The famous Victoria Falls are just a ten-minute walk away using the hotel’s private pathway, and “the smoke that thunders” or “Mosi-O-Tunya” in the local dialect, is clearly audible and visible from this luxurious landmark.
World-class service, and food and beverage choice and preparation second to none, make the hotel a magnet for international visitors and locals alike. The opulent Livingstone Room for fine dining and dancing, the Jungle Junction with its famous breakfast and dinner buffets and ethnic entertainment in the evenings, offer variety and wide choice. Stanley’s Terrace, with its clear view of the Victoria Falls Bridge, connecting Zimbabwe and Zambia, is renowned for its cocktails and afternoon teas.
