Best Life-Changing Trips: Victoria Falls

Three Perspectives on Victoria Falls

You may have spotted big game on an African safari, but their power pales in comparison with roaring Victoria Falls, the largest in the world. You can begin your day by admiring the view from The Royal Livingstone hotel along the banks of the Zambezi River within Zambia’s Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park. Approach the site on foot—the hotel is just a short stroll from the park’s entrance—and finally get a true sense of its scope by taking an unforgettable helicopter ride. You’ll appreciate why locals described the falls as “smoke that thunders.”
