Victoria Falls Adventure

Rafting, safari, bungee jump, zip line and swimming - all included in this epic Victoria Falls adventure.

Victoria Falls or Mosi-oa-Tunya (The Smoke which Thunders), is a waterfall on the Zambezi river, right at the border between Zambia and Zimbabwe. If approached from the north, Victoria Falls looks like a cloud of steam which is slowly approaching the African sky, thunderously marveling at its own size. Its foggy residue can be even seen at a distance of 40 kilometers. The Zambezi river approaches the waterfalls at a steady pace, disturbing only a few surrounding islands. It is the widest waterfall in the world. On a steep rock found at its opposite side is a place called Danger Point, where the flowing of water causes the steam laden air to lift so intensely that it may also carry away a handkerchief belonging to a careless tourist. The clash between the sun rays and droplets of water result in the appearance of the most astonishing rainbows. On a clear night embellished by the moon, the steam veil creates miraculous lunar rainbows.

David Livingston, a Scottish missionary and doctor, was the first European who saw the waterfall in 1855, calling it after the British queen Victoria. The great explorer sailed the 2700 kilometer long Zambezi river hoping that it might serve as a sort of ‘’God’s highway’’ which might lead to the opening of central Africa. Traveling downstream in a canoe, he reached the waterfall on November 16th, even though he spotted the pillars of steam a lot earlier. At the foot of the waterfall, an unforgettable seven day adventure awaits us. We will start with rafting, and then move on to safari in Chobe National Park. After our return in Livingstone, we will proceed with the following adventures: bungee jumping, the largest zip line in the world, Abseiling on the Victoria falls, Swimming bellow Victoria falls…
