The famous 116 meter drop is a thrill seekers dream, the jumps are conducted off the Bridge between Zimbabwe ad Zambia.
The gorge swing is operated by a few different companies and at different locations on both sides of the border. Some say better than Bungi others say nay. Either way it’s a kicker.
Guided Fishing Trips
This activity is done above The Falls and it is the thrill of catching the Tiger fish which is a well known fighting fish, probably the best in any fresh water system.
There are few things better than cruising the Mighty Zambezi River. Many options available here but essentially its a sunset booze cruise.
Another classic in these parts, and once again done above The Falls. Two man canoes cruising along the shore of the Victoria Falls National Park, one of the best ways to view game and enjoy the peaceful African bush.
Flight of Angels
The name given to this activity comes from Livingstone himself when he first gazed upon the mighty falls. Take a flight over the falls in helicopters, micro lights, and small aircraft. There is no beating this perspective of The Falls.
Chobe Day Trips
The Chobe National Park is only 70km away from Vic Falls and many companies offer day trips there to witness the awesome elephant herds, and second to none game viewing experience.
Hwange National Park Trips
One of Zimbabwe’s premier National Parks is just over an hour’s drive away. With healthy populations of elephants, lions, and buffalo, this park is a real treat. There are also conservation efforts for the Black Rhino here .
