Victoria Falls has long captured the hearts, imaginations and adventurous spirits of couples the world over. Viewing this massive, thunderous curtain of falling water with your partner is undoubtedly one of the world's most awe-inspiring shared experiences, so it’s no surprise that Victoria Falls remains a popular destination for honeymooners year after year. But a Victoria Falls honeymoon is not only about heart-stopping views and adrenalin highs: the 'Smoke That Thunders' - as it’s known to the locals - has a gentler, more romantic side too.
Upstream from Victoria Falls lie a number of luxurious lodges tucked away on either side of the Zambezi River. Here you and your partner can enjoy treats like five-course dinners served on a floating deck or luxurious tree house accommodation. You may prefer to stay in a decadent honeymoon suite on a private game reserve on the Zambian side, where old-world elegance is combined with thrilling game viewing, world-class accommodation and attentive service.
But there's a further dimension to Victoria Falls: this is Africa's adventure capital after all, and there's a seemingly infinite list of activities to choose from. You could do anything from taking to the skies with the 'Flight of Angels' helicopter flip over Victoria Falls to toasting the end of a perfect day with a glass of bubbly as you glide down the Zambezi on a sunset cruise.
Then of course there are those activities that really get the blood racing. Hold hands and take the leap! A tandem 111-metre bungee jump off Victoria Falls Bridge is truly a shared experience never to be forgotten. World-class whitewater rafting, abseiling, lion walks, game drives and elephant-back safaris – the thrills are endless; take your pick.
And finally, remember that Victoria Falls lies at the centre of the Southern Africa safari experience and our Africa Safari experts can easily add on a classic big game safari in neighbouring Botswana, Namibia or indeed to other destinations in Zimbabwe or Zambia - simply ask us and we'll make it happen.
