About Victoria Falls - A genuine bucket list destination, Victoria Falls is a town with the same name of Africa’s iconic falls. It has a relaxed, local feel, and walkable streets lined with accommodations - a place specifically for tourists! Located in the province of Matabeleland in western Zimbabwe, this town not only offers the best views of the falls, but it also has world-class adventure tourism and wildlife safaris. Since this is one of those vacation destinations that shouldn’t be rushed, give yourself a chance to explore the area by booking Victoria Falls vacation rentals with Owner Direct. Though vacation rentals are often condo rentals and villa rentals, these home rentals are the type of lodgings that gives a homey feel in a traditional way.

Almost all the bedrooms have their own veranda overlooking the garden and possibly the private pool. You can choose to lounge on the couch, TV lounge and bar, or enjoy the balcony. Most of the properties are fenced, making it safe for kids to run around. There may also a housekeeper, a cleaner, a gardener, and night watchmen. You can use the fully equipped kitchen, but for total relaxation during your trip, request the owner to arrange for a cook as well.
What to See & Do - The largest sheet of falling water in the world is just one of the many highlights of Victoria Falls. The backyard is adjacent to the National Park where you can watch the elephants grazing quietly. You can choose from other activities in the area such as horseback safaris, peaceful river cruises on the upper Zambezi, or thrilling white-water rafting below the falls!

For drinks, weekends at Shoestrings Bar are the closest you’ll get to a rowdy night out.
How to Get Here & Getting Around - Victoria Falls Airport is just 18 km south of town. For getting around, though the vacation rentals are within walking distance of great attractions, a car can be hired and taxis are easily organized by the housekeeper.
