Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe

Victoria Falls

Victoria Falls, a magnificent waterfall on the Zambezi River forms the boundary between Zimbabwe and Zambia.  Dr. David Livingstone, a Scottish missionary and famous explorer named the Falls after Queen Victoria, and it was designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1989.  

The Victoria Falls is approximately twice as wide and twice as deep as Niagara Falls. The mighty Zambezi River drops about 354 feet and is the largest sheet of falling water on the planet. Apart from the Victoria Falls there is also the surrounding Victoria Falls National Park that has both large and small animals. Many species of teak, ebony and acacia are found in the forests surrounding the Falls. The rock cliffs at the Falls are home to eagles, buzzards and of course the klipspringer and bushbuck. It is not unusual to see herds of elephant in the town of Victoria Falls! 

Victoria Falls is also known as an adrenaline capital with many activities available to those seeking great adventure. Helicopter flights or a microlight if you are looking for something a little more exhilarating. There is white water rafting, gorge swings and ziplining! There is also a canopy tour offering incredible views of the Zambezi’s rapids, the spray of the Falls and the Victoria Falls bridge.
