Many people have a visit to the awe-inspiring Victoria Falls on their bucket list - and for good reason! Very few experiences in the world can compare to being so close to one of the most beautiful and monolithic natural wonders of the world. Victoria Falls is located on the Zambezi River, right on the border between Zambia and Zimbabwe, and was first visited by Europeans on November 16th, 1855, by the Scottish explorer, David Livingstone. Of course, the indigenous Tonga people already had a name for the falls - Mosi-oa-Tunya - which means the “Smoke That Thunders”.

Victoria Falls is the world’s largest falling sheet of water and is comprised of several gorges. There are many natural parks nearby, as well. Victoria Falls is truly a wonder of nature, so go ahead and check it off your bucket list. When visiting, you’ll need a place to stay, so read on for our list of top 10 Airbnb vacation rentals in the area, and start planning your trip!

This is a truly amazing accommodation, perfect for people looking to truly immerse themselves in an African adventure.

This tranquil retreat is only a few minutes away from Victoria Falls and is perfect for any kind of traveller looking to get close to the African bush.
