On the Zambian side access to Victoria Falls is from the Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park aka ‘The Smoke Which Thunders’. Flanked by the mighty Zambezi River, the park is an UNESCO World Heritage site and is separated into two parts, the falls area and the wildlife sanctuary that has only remaining white rhinos in Zambia and roaming elephant.
I took the opportunity (even though the sign said not to) amble across the riverbed, and walk all the way around. I think that was the highlight of being at the falls. There were a few local guys who showed me the safest way to cross for a small fee; but it was definitely worth every penny.
In the flood season March-April the falls are at its strongest. At its lowest during November to December, it only has a few cataracts and most of the river is dry. However this is the best time to white water raft all the way through the Batoka Gorge.over 5 years ago
