The Victoria Falls remains one of the most spectacular natural wonders of the world, aptly described by its nickname “Mosi-oa-Tunya” – meaning the smoke that thunders.
This World Heritage Site is almost 2km wide and over 100m high, is halfway along the mighty Zambezi River and straddles two countries – Zimbabwe and Zambia. Victoria Falls is the town on the Zimbabwean side and Livingstone is on the Zambian side, both have international airports and well established tourism facilities and services. The highest water level is between April to June, while this is impressive to see, and hear, it does make visibility limited with the amount of spray that is churned up. During the lowest water level months from October to December the geological formation of the Falls is clearly visible and it is possible to visit Livingstone Island and swim in Devil’s Pool.

Bridge Jump, Slide Or Swing
The Victoria Falls Bridge offers three incredible and heart racing activities. Visitors have the opportunity to bungee jump off the historic,128m bridge, down into the deep ravine below. For a slightly different thrill, guests can embrace their inner child and get on the bridge swing. Go solo or with a partner and swing off the bridge in a huge arch. Finally, for a tamer, but still exciting experience, visitors can take the bridge slide, a 300m zipline from one side of the bridge to the other.
