Victoria Falls has an impressive list of credentials; the widest curtain of falling water on earth, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of only seven natural wonders on the planet.
Often, when there's so much hype about a place, you prepare yourself for a slight let down. This is definitely not the case with Victoria Falls! Zimbabwe offers the visitor a host of natural wonders, not least of which is the legendary Victoria Falls. Mosi-Oa-Tunya - the smoke that thunders, stretches over 1.5km as it plunges over 100 metres into the Zambezi gorge below. When David Livingstone saw the Falls for the first time in 1855, he wrote “Scenes so lovely, it must have been gazed upon by angels in their flight” and today visitors can take the “Flight of Angels” in a helicopter or light aircraft flight over the Falls which gives you the ultimate view of this magnificent wonder.
The energetic can enjoy the thrills of white water rafting, canoeing, bungee jumping or just relaxing on a sundowner cruise surrounded by a spectacular African sunset. Separating Zimbabwe from Zambia, the great Zambezi River thunders over the Falls while Crocodile and Hippo lurk in the placid lagoons upstream.
The Victoria Falls is the largest, probably the most beautiful and certainly the most majestic waterfall in the world. A trip to Southern Africa would be incomplete without visiting this memorable sight. Visitors to Victoria Falls can also enjoy sundowner cruises on the Zambezi, fishing, walking amongst the game, taking horse back trails, daring to go white water rafting on the rapids below the Falls, and, for the really brave, bungee jumping 111m off the Victoria Falls Bridge!
