One of the original natural wonders of the world, the Victoria Falls is a World Heritage Site and an extremely popular tourism attraction. Known locally as ‘The Smoke that Thunders’, this spectacle straddles both Zambia and Zimbabwe and it is an ideal place to combine game viewing and water sports. There is excellent fishing, a terrifying bungee jump and arguably the best commercial white-water rafting in the world.
During your stay in Victoria Falls, enjoy a guided tour of the falls which takes approximately 2 hours. This includes fascinating history on the discovery of the falls reflecting that in November 1855, Dr David Livingstone was transported in a canoe by the local Makalolo people to the very edge of these falls.
The sensitive Scotsman was so overwhelmed by his first sight of these spectacular falls, that he momentarily abandoned his scientific observations and recorded, “It has never been seen before by European eyes, but scenes so wonderful must have been gazed upon by angels in their flight”. The good missionary, whose heart lies buried in Africa, named this great wonder of the world after Victoria, his British queen.
