Victoria Falls is the backbone of the tourism industry in Zimbabwe. In spite of unfounded rumours that the falls had dried up, people still throng the major tourist attraction on a daily basis. Last year, famous celebrities Michael Douglas and his wife Catherine Zeta Jones and their family visited Victoria falls as well as football administrator Ceferin and his family. Here are some of the activities you can try out in Vic Falls.
1. Helicopter flight over the falls
This is probably one of the most gratifying things to do and the breathtaking view from above is unforgettable. David Livingstone once remarked in 1855,”scenes so lovely must have been gazed upon by angels in their flights”. Aptly named the’ flight of angels’ and indisputably one of the best ways to appreciate the true splendour of Victoria falls.
2. Elephant back safaris
If you are a big fan of elephants, then a ride on the back of these Giants is truly an extraordinary experience. You get to explore the majestic grasslands of Victoria falls national Park and marvel at the spectacular scenery of Masuie river whilst cormfotable sitter atop an elephant.
3. Dinner cruise on the Zambezi river
For an ultimate luxury experience nothing beats a gourmet 3 course dinner whilst floating along the mighty Zambezi river. It is the ideal dining experience. You can also get to watch the magnificent Zinbabwean sunset and enjoy some night sounds of the riverbank under a star studded sky.
4. Devil’s pool
This pool can however only be accessed from the Zambian side. It is a deep natural pool in the edge of the Victoria falls. There is a rock ledge that forms a natural barrier thereby making it safe to swim and have some really nice pics taken.
5. The gorge swing
This one is great for those adrenaline junkies. The gorge swing is quite incredible.You will be swinging 120metres above water
