Is Victoria Falls Worth Visiting for Solo Female Travelers?

Victoria Falls, a UNESCO World Heritage site situated in the northwestern corner of Zimbabwe, Africa, is renowned as one of the most majestic waterfalls in the world. Named after Queen Victoria by Scottish explorer David Livingstone, it is known locally as "Mosi-oa-Tunya" or "The Smoke That Thunders," due to the incredible heights from which the waters of the Zambezi River plummet into the batoka gorge, creating mystic clouds of mist and powerful, roaring sounds. This stunning natural wonder and the surrounding Zambezi National Park are home to a wide range of wildlife, including elephants, hippos, and diverse bird species, making it a must-visit destination for nature lovers, adventurers, and those seeking a unique African travel experience.

Solo travel experience

Victoria Falls is a tiny town, easy to stroll around. It only consists of a few short streets and of course a few hotels + a huge campsite with bungalows, which is fine if you're on a tight budget. I 100% recommend swimming in the Devil's Pool, at the top of the waterfall. I did it on the Zambia side, and it took me about 2 hours altogether, including a boat trip to Livingstone Island and a light meal served later on the island.
