Known by the locals as Mosi-Oa-Tonya (the smoke that thunders), Victoria Falls is nothing short one of nature’s most magnificent sights. With over 625 million litres of water flowing over the falls per minute falling 308 meters onto the jagged rocks below, the falls is considered to be the worlds biggest waterfall, with this taking into account the volume, height and width combined. Victoria Falls can be viewed from both the Zimbabwe and Zambian side.
The Victoria Falls National Park, situated within Victoria Falls Town in Zimbabwe, offers a much larger vantage point of the falls and often in the drier season when the water levels have dropped, the Zimbabwean side still experiences a high volume of water thundering over the Falls. With this being said, viewing Victoria Falls from Mosi-Oa-Tunya National Park in Livingstone, Zambia is nothing short of spectacular and boasts the opportunity to swim in the famous Devils Pool, which eerily lurks on the edge of the falls, a bucket list moment for most.
It is safe to say that any adrenaline junkie will get their fix when visiting the Victoria Falls area as it offers activities to suit everyone’s needs. From taking it easy and enjoying a peaceful sunset cruise along the Upper Zambezi as you watch the animals come down for their evening drink to bungee jumping 111 meters towards the rapids below, white water rafting grade 5 rapids, helicopter or microlight flips over the falls or perhaps you’re brave enough to take a plunge in Devil’s Pool, this really is a must visit location.
