Zimbabwe Victoria Falls

VICTORIA FALLS

One of the Natural Wonders of the world and a true masterpiece of Mother Nature at her ultimate best is the incomparable and largest waterfall in the world, the great Victoria Falls. Commonly known as Vic Falls by locals and tourists alike, this town in Zimbabwe is home to a World Heritage Site and is situated on the southern bank of the idyllic Zambezi River.

It is the standout attraction to visit when exploring Zimbabwe and when you witness this majestic mass of water you will realise why. Named after Queen Victoria of Britain in the mid-19th century, it was before known as Mosi-oa-Tunya which means “the smoke that thunders”. Recent efforts have been made by the Zimbabwean government to go back to this original name but most still know it as Vic Falls.

If you seek adventure in unspoilt nature then you will love staying in this area. Once in a life time activities such as helicopter rides over the waterfalls is something that one shouldn’t miss out on. River rafting in the hippo dominated rapids below is also an experience worth trying. Then for the daredevil travellers there is bridge swinging and bungee jumping opportunities off the 100m high falls. Other things to do in Victoria Falls are game walks in the lush wilderness that surrounds the Zambezi River bed, where you are able to spot game such as lion and elephants. Swimming on the edge of the falls in the Devils Pool where you have spectacular views of this magnificent destination is also a highlight. Alternatively a sunset cruise along the Zambezi will be something that any nature lover will enjoy.
