Map of Victoria Falls and surrounding area. Victoria Falls is the name of the town on the Zimbabwean side (southern side of the river). The town on the Zambian side is called Livingstone. You can fly to either Victoria Falls or Livingstone airports. Upstream of the falls, the water is flat and calm, great for canoeing or a sunset cruise. Downstream, the river creates a series of rapids as it flows down the Batoka Gorge. A visit to Victoria Falls can easily be combined with a safari in Hwange National Park in Zimbabwe, or Chobe National Park in Botswana.
Previously known as the Zambezi Sun, the AVANI Victoria Falls Resort is a family-friendly hotel resort, and the closest hotel to the falls on the Zambian side.
The Royal Livingstone is a luxury, 5-star, colonial style hotel resort on the banks of the Zambezi river, on the Zambian side of the Falls.
