Zimbabwe - Victoria Falls

You will hear Victoria Falls, long before you see them.

For miles around the roar of the rushing Zambezi River echoes over the rainforest. The Smoke that Thunders, as the falls are known locally, are one of the world’s greatest natural attractions and a playground for adventurers.

Witness the falls first in the company of David Livingstone, the first European to see the ‘smoke’, whose statue still peers in wonder. Down at the foot of the gorge, accessible via the Chain Walk, there is a crashing perspective of the river’s might.  Those not of faint heart, will want to view the falls close to the cliff at Danger Point to see the water thunder below at Boiling Pot.

If the spectacular views aren’t enthralling enough, the fearless will want to bungee jump from the Victoria Falls Bridge to add to the adventure. There is a zip line for those fearless enough to cross the gorge and keen to feel the spray, while down in the rapid white waters below, a raft ride is the only way to experience the force of the falling water.

Visitors who make the trip during quieter periods will find treats all of their own: during the dry season, when the flow is at the lowest, there is the chance to walk through the waterfalls, and for those making the trek during a full moon, a nighttime encounter will bare witness to the spectacular lunar rainbow that arches over the rushing water.

High fliers will want to take the chance to view the landmark’s expansive might with a once-in-a-lifetime helicopter ride.

You may hear the falls for miles around, but seeing them - how ever you chose to do so - is an unforgettable experience.
