Always a great start to any stay in the Victoria Falls region, expertly guided tours of the waterfall provide a fascinating introduction to The Smoke that Thunders. Walks can include the lush rainforest, the dramatic gorges, and the statue of David Livingstone, who was the first European to see the Falls.
Opportunities to get the adrenaline pumping abound here! Among the Falls thrills available are white water rafting, bungee jumping, canoeing, zipwiring, gorge swinging, and a dip in Devil’s Pool, the pool positioned precariously at the top of the waterfall.
Perfect for taking time to relax and simply enjoy being in this spectacular part of the world, cruises appeal to all types of traveller. As you drift along the Zambezi, you’ll spot predators and herbivores alike coming to drink on the banks as well as the likes of crocs and hippos swimming in the water. You can also look out for a wealth of waterbirds!
See it all from the sky, by boarding a helicopter and flying over the Falls area. Usually two flights are offered. One involves a back-and-forth journey above the waterfall before a pause to bank and marvel at the gorges, while another longer flight provides views of Zambezi National Park too!
