Book your flight to Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe to explore one of nature's most spectacular feats with a holiday of a lifetime.
‘Mosi oa Tunya’ or the ‘Smoke that Thunders’ is what the local people call the Victoria Falls. The ‘smoke’ refers to water vapour shooting up several hundred metres above the Falls – something visible from over 50 km away.
Imagine standing close by, and witnessing the mighty Zambezi River plummeting over a rock edge, 1,708 metres wide, into a 108-metre-deep gorge, while it unleashes its untamed and thunderous power with millions of tons of water?
The small town of Victoria Falls started in 1901, when engineers were investigating how to generate hydroelectric power from the Falls. The majestic Victoria Falls hotel situated in the centre of the town invites you to enjoy its unrivalled comfort and hospitality, which shows off its striking Edwardian architecture. In addition, the hotel provides you with a breathtaking view of the Victoria Falls in all its splendour.
It’s not difficult to appreciate the incredible engineering used to create the 198-metre-long steel Victoria Falls Bridge built in 1905.
If you want to add a bit of spice to your day, a bungee jump from the Bridge will do the trick. Take a Flight of Angels helicopter ride that will unfold the magnificence of Victoria Falls from high above. ‘Flight of Angels’ was coined by Dr Livingstone when he first came to the Falls, and was overcome by the spectacle.
Walking the Knife Edge Bridge is an experience that will be etched in your memory forever – providing a stunning view of the main gorge and the eastern cataract of the Falls. But be warned, you’ll get soaking wet in the process. You’ll also be rewarded by seeing a lunar or moon rainbow on the Bridge when there is a full moon.
If you want to come close to experiencing infinity, then take a dip in the Devil's Pool, a pool that appears on the edge of the Falls during the drier months. But don’t worry - experienced guides will help you swim to the pool.
White water rafting is not for the timid but worth the exhilarating experience, nonetheless. When the Zambezi River is high from February to July, you’ll need to conquer 13 rapids or 23 rapids when river levels drop.
Explore the Victoria Falls area on the back of a horse if you prefer more relaxed activities.
Book your flight and discover Victoria Falls for yourself as no words or pictures could ever adequately convey what makes a world-famous natural wonder.
