Dynamite comes in small packages. Need proof? Then look no further than Victoria Falls Town. This lively little village is the gateway to ‘the smoke that thunders’—and one of the most adventurous holidays you’ll ever have. Thanks to roaring Victoria Falls, the town that sprang up around its gorges is brimming with activities to thrill even the most hardened adrenaline junkies.
Get your pulse racing by White Water Rafting down rapids, Bungee Jumping from the Victoria Falls Bridge, or going croc-cage diving. For something more mild, try a canoe trip or a sunset cruise along the mighty Zambezi River, or hop on to Scenic Helicopter Flights for a bird’s-eye view of one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World. The town is favourably flanked by two national parks—Zambezi National Park and Victoria Falls National Park—which collectively span 56,000 hectares and offer a range of thrilling game-viewing experiences.
Victoria Falls is easily accessible from both sides of the border. Flights to the Zimbabwe side leave from Johannesburg daily, and flights to the Zambia side are frequently received from Johannesburg and Mpumalanga Kruger Airport. Some travellers prefer landing in Zambia to catch a glimpse of the Falls’ eastern cataract before hopping over the border to Zimbabwe (where 76% of the Falls is found).
