Victoria Falls location

Victoria Falls is located on the Zambezi River bordering Zambia and Zimbabwe, South Africa.

Both Zimbabwe and Zambia allow tourists to do day trips to the Victoria Falls without prior application process. Visas can be obtained at the border posts.

The closest and most convenient towns to start a trip to the waterfall are Victoria Falls town in Zimbabwe and Livingstone (also called Maramba town) in Zambia.

A daily trip will cost approximately 60-90 USD.

There are numerous tourist agencies, but the prices are almost the same.

Falls can be viewed from several points. One of the best vantage points is located on a bridge, called Knife Edge.

The Eastern Cataract and the Main Falls as well as the Boiling Pot, where the river turns and heads down the Batoka Gorge, are best visible from the Knife Edge.
