One of the Wonders of the natural world, the Victoria Falls have to be experienced in person. “Scenes so lovely must have been gazed upon by Angels in their flight' was the often-quoted note that David Livingstone made when he first saw this breathtaking waterfall.
Victoria Falls was formed where the Zambezi drops 100m into a narrow gorge. During the wet season over 5 million cubic metres of water cascade over the falls every minute. From the road, you can hear the roar and see the spray of this immense waterfall rising up towards the sky as you approach.
A small town on the southern side of the falls, just across the river from the Zambian town of Livingstone, Victoria Falls is a crossroads for travellers who can participate in the many adventurous activities on offer, besides marvelling at the waterfall. These include sightseeing flights over the falls, called 'The Flight of Angels', which can be done by helicopter, microlight or ultralight. Those seeking further excitement can bungee-jump over the mighty Zambezi, zip-wire or gorge-swing across its vast width, canoe amongst its hippos and crocodiles, or raft down it on one of the world's toughest stretches of white water.
