Victoria Falls, famously nicknamed ‘The Smoke That Thunders’, has been intriguing visitors for hundreds of years. Shrouded in the mists from her own waters, audible even before you encounter her, the Falls are calling you to come play and explore- all you need to do is listen!
Forming part of the border between Zambia and Zimbabwe, Victoria Falls marks the spot where the churning Zambezi river plummets 355 feet through tough basalt rock into its own breathtaking gorge. Be sure to visit Knife-edge bridge, the delicate line spanning the sides of the gorge, to capture truly spectacular shots of this World Heritage Site!
Victoria Falls is about way more than just churning wild water, however. It’s a full-service action adventure with multiple opportunities to feel your heart pound and your adrenaline spike. From helicopter trips and canopy tours to wire-plunges, zip lines, the bridge slide and abseiling, you’re spoilt for choice when it comes to seeing the falls as never before. Or head out to pit your wits against the river with white-water rafting through some of the world’s most challenging rapids. You can even take the ultimate test- plunge from her notorious bungee jump and prove you have nerves of steel!
If that’s all too exciting for you, you’ll be glad to hop on a sunset cruise down the Zambezi. It’s the perfect way to spot the diverse wildlife of the area- including elephants and hippos- from as little as a few meters away. Or allow Go Touch Down Travel and Tours to book you a mountain bike or horseback tour of the exquisite Victoria Falls trails, and meet her people along the way. Cultural tours allow you to explore more about the diverse history and culture of the people who call the Falls’ area home, too, bringing the human touch to this spectacular force of nature.
There’s no more perfect spot to combine spine-tingling thrills, breathtaking scenery and Africa’s best wildlife all in one. Visit this iconic wonder of the world, and go home refreshed, revived and with a different take on the world. Do be sure to book your package with Go Touch Down Travel and Tours as soon as possible, however, as this ever-popular destination sells out quickly- you don’t want to be disappointed!
