Victoria Falls Honeymoon

The Zambezi river flows along the border of Zambia and Zimbabwe before plunging down into Victoria Falls, dividing them between the two countries. When deciding which side should host your honeymoon, Zimbabwe has the advantage on its neighbor. It possesses the larger portion of these majestic falls with several viewpoints connected by trails in the lush rainforest. Town is only a couple of kilometers away and most activities are available on this end. The Zambian segment is much smaller but allows for sunset views without worrying about trekking back after dark and experiences such as the devil’s swim are only available on their turf. All rivalries aside, whichever country suits your fancy, Victoria Falls provides an array of activities from adrenaline inducing to relaxing for newlyweds seeking adventure or tranquility in the midst of a wild setting. As for food, there is a wide variety for all tastes to enjoy.

Prep for your Victoria Falls honeymoon with this guide.
