- Trip Outline
Without a doubt a Tour of the Victoria Falls is a must do. The falls are one of the 7 Natural Wonders of the World and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It is the World’s largest curtain of falling water. The Victoria Falls are 1708m wide with an average depth of about 100m. The spray of the Falls is visible from many kilometers away. The waters of the Zambezi River have so far carved out 8 spectacular gorges which are breeding sites for several endangered bird species among them the critically endangered Taita Falcon.
Our tour of the Victoria Falls starts with the walk upstream with some spectacular views in to the gorge and towards Livingstone Island. Dr. David Livingstone minted the name Victoria Falls in honor of Queen Victoria of England in 1855 when he was the first European to see them. His statue is overlooking the Victoria Falls. The Falls are locally known as Mosi-oa-Tunya or the “Smoke that Thunders”. The tour continues in front of the Falls across the Knife-edge Bridge to the Dead End Point. Afterwards we can down in to the gorge through the only piece of rainforest in Southern Zambia.
