Considers as the most iconic destination in Africa! In full flood, Victoria Falls throws up clouds of soaking mist that gives this world wonder its local name – Mosi-oa-Tunya, ‘The Smoke That Thunders’. The Victoria Falls may not be the highest, nor widest waterfall in the world, but it is classed as the world’s largest and is also one of the world’s natural wonders – the culmination of the mighty Zambezi River plummeting 108 metres down along over 1.7km.
In addition to viewing the falls from several amazing vantage points, Victoria Falls has emerged as a somewhat adventurer’s paradise with a range of adrenalin-busting activities on offer from white water rafting to gorge swinging. Of course, if you’d rather just watch awestruck, be sure to pack an umbrella or poncho because you’re about to get very wet.
Victoria Falls is positioned at the heart of the Southern African safari experience and combines easily with incredible wildlife destinations such as Botswana’s Chobe National Park and Zambia’s Lower Zambezi and South Luangwa.
