The Victoria Falls is one of the seven natural wonders in the world and is the main tourist attraction in Southern Africa. It is the largest waterfall in the world, twice as tall as Niagra Falls. The locals call it Mosi-oa-Tunya which means “the smoke that thunders”, a very fitting description of this magnificent sight.

What to do:

Besides viewing the Victoria Falls, there are many fun activities catering to people from different walks of life.
• Bungee Jumping – a 111 meter high jump is sure to get your adrenaline rushing.
• Whitewater rafting – Victoria Falls is rated as one of the best places in the world to go whitewater rafting.
• Body Boarding – if you think whitewater rafting is exciting, wait till you try traversing the Zambezi River on a body board.
• High Wire – definitely not for the faint hearted. Experience a bird’s eye view of the gorge and the river either through the Gorge swing or Helicopter flips.
• Lion Walking – If you think you’re brave enough, walk with one of the top predators on the planet. No cages or leashes; just you and the lions in their natural habitat. You will also learn about conservation issues regarding the undisputed king of the jungle.
If you prefer more tame activities, there are a lot available in Victoria Falls.
• Kayaking – Experience the peaceful side of the Victoria Falls.
• River Cruise – View the amazing variety of wildlife as you cruise the river.
• Elephant Rides – Take a ride on the biggest land mammal on the planet.
• African Safari – You can’t say you’ve been to Africa if you haven’t gone to the safari.
• Fly fishing – The Zambezi River is teeming with aquatic wildlife.
