Mosi Oa Tunya – “the smoke that thunders” – this magnificent sight is a must for all to see. Known as one of the natural Seven Wonders in the World – the Victoria Falls is 1.7km wide and 108 metres drop into the chasm below. Amazing rainbows can be seen at certain times of the day and if you time your trip to Victoria Falls over the full moon, you can see the Lunar rainbow, something not to be missed.
Victoria Falls is part of the Zambezi National Park, so why not incorporate a game drive or game walk into the Park, where you can encounter a variety of different animals. The Zambezi National Park runs along the Zambezi River (an area of 56 000 hectares) – so not only is it picturesque but you may also want to try your hand at a bit of fishing or enjoy a sundowner cruise where you can just relax and enjoy the scenery, animals and cocktails, with the grand finale of a beautiful sunset.
There are a various other activities on offer in Victoria Falls – white water rafting, helicopter rides, bungi jumping for the more adventurous, the famous bridge tours just to name a few. Victoria Falls offers a wide variety of accommodation, from guest lodges, hotels to camps, so there is always something to fit everyone’s budget.
If there is time, try and visit the Victoria Falls Bridge – interestingly this bridge was designed in England and was transported in pieces and assembled on site – this bridge connects Zimbabwe to Zambia and was built in 1906.
