Victoria Falls
Victoria Falls, one of the most spectacular natural wonders on earth, lovingly named by the local people as “Mosi-oa-Tunya”, The Smoke That Thunders…

A UNESCO Natural World Heritage Site, it is said that The Victoria Falls, is known as the greatest curtain of falling water in the world. Situated almost halfway along the Zambezi River, the watery spray of the falls can be witnessed from many miles away. More than five hundred million cubic meters of water per minute plummet over the edge over a width of nearly two kilometres into a gorge over one hundred meters below. Flowing between two countries, Zambia

and Zimbabwe, the falls serves as an elusive drape combing the spectacular explorative experiences of Livingstone on the Zambian side, and, Victoria Falls on the Zimbabwean side. From white-water rafting to bungee jumping, from safaris, to sunset cruises …it’s any explorative traveler’s haven. The falls offer incomparable views and vantage points of mist-soaked rain forests and the Boiling Pot where the river plunges down the Batoka Gorge.
