The town of Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe is situated less than one kilometre away from the Victoria Falls.
With a population of just over 30 000 people, this little village is steeped in history and, other than being the gateway to its namesake – the Victoria Falls – it is a great place to explore.
The town has many quaint restaurants and cafes where light meals, fine dining or a drink can be enjoyed. You can also take time out to do curio shopping, where local traders at the vibrant markets sell a wide range of beautiful arts and crafts to take home and remember your holiday by.
A gift shop, conveniently located in Victoria Falls River Lodge, also stocks a variety of unique souvenirs. A percentage of all the profits of the gift shop is donated to the non-profit organisation Jafuta Foundation to assist in the continuation of their work in the local community.
