Victoria Falls is every traveller’s favourite and one of the world's must see sights.
Here, the Zambezi River widens to 1.7 km and then plunges 107m into the Zambezi Gorge. The force of the tumbling water, estimated at around 545 million litres per minute during the rainy season, sends clouds of spray up to 500m into the air, sustaining a lush rainforest all around.
All year round, flights can be taken in a fixed wing aircraft, micro lights, ultra lights or helicopters. On the ground, the Falls can be seen from the Victoria Falls National Park with its many viewing
points, or from the Zambian side. Each side offers fantastic photographic opportunities. White water rafting in the Batoka Gorge is considered to be world class. Besides the excitement of the grade 5 rapids, there are “floats” where there is time to admire the scenic cliffs and occasional wildlife on the riverbanks. Bungee jumping enthusiasts can take the plunge from the Zambezi Bridge, which connects Zambia and Zimbabwe. The leap into the Batoka Gorge is certainly not for the fainthearted.
