Victoria Falls

Aerial view of the Victoria waterfalls

 

Victoria Falls forms the border between Zambia and Zimbabwe and presents a spectacular sight of awe-inspiring beauty and grandeur on the Zambezi River. It was described by the Kololo tribe living in the area in the 1800’s as ‘Mosi-oa-Tunya’ – ‘The Smoke that Thunders’.

In more modern terms Victoria Falls is known as the greatest curtain of falling water in the world. Columns of spray can be seen from miles away as. At the height of the rainy season, more than five hundred million cubic meters of water per minute plummet over the edge, over a width of nearly two kilometers, into a gorge over one hundred meters below.

One special vantage point is across the Knife-edge Bridge, where visitors can have the finest view of the Eastern Cataract and the Main Falls as well as the Boiling Pot, where the river turns and heads down the Batoka Gorge. Other vantage points include the Falls Bridge, Devils Pool and the Lookout Tree, which command panoramic views across the Main Falls.

The choice of activities at Victoria Falls is astounding. Try your hand at white water rafting or experience a scenic helicopter flight. You can quad and mountain bike, bungee jump, abseil, gorge swing or zip line. Jet boating, horseback trails and elephant back safaris are also all available at Victoria Falls.
