One of the natural wonders of the world, Victoria Falls is a designated UNESCO World Heritage Site on the mighty Zambezi River. Known locally as "Mosi-oa-Tunya" (the Smoke that Thunders) it presents us with the incredible spectacle of the largest single curtain of water on the planet (at its most impressive from May to September).
Victoria Falls in recent years has developed into the 'Adventure capital of Africa' and it's all there for those who are interested - white-water rafting on the Zambezi; a 'gorge swing' some 120 metres above the water; zip-wiring across the gorge at 100 kilometres an hour; a Canopy Tour for a birds' eye view of the falls. You can also enjoy a game drive in a private reserve, with the chance of tracking the elusive black rhino, relax on a choice of cruises, or take a helicopter ride to view from the air what David Livingstone famously described as "...scenes so lovely they must have been gazed upon by angels in their flight".
Enjoy lunch at The Lookout Cafe, perched 120m above the turbulent rapids of the Zambezi River, overhanging the giant chasm of the Batoka Gorge, just downriver from the Victoria Falls Bridge.
Other activities to consider are village walks, or a visit to the Victoria Falls Wildlife Trust (VFTW).
