For any traveler looking to experience an amazing natural wonder, check out the majestic waterfall at Victoria Falls. Known as one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World, Victoria Falls is known for its stunning beauty and powerful force.

Victoria Falls is on the Zambezi River, which borders Zambia and Zimbabwe. The falls are one mile wide and the tallest waterfall in the world, standing at 350 feet high. Because of this impressive height, visitors can feel and hear the thunderous roar of water cascading down into a deep gorge below.

The beauty of Victoria Falls can be experienced from both land and air. If you’re looking for a more relaxed experience, then check out the beautiful wildlife by taking a drive to spot elephants, cheetahs, zebras, and lions, or hop on aboard a boat and see the hippos splashing about or guided nature walks or walk through the villages and learn about the traditional culture.

For those looking for a more thrilling experience, there are plenty of activities, such as bungee jumping, white water rafting, canoeing, and swimming in Devil’s Pool, where you are right at the edge of the falls.

The source of the falls, the Zambezi River, is the fourth largest river in Africa, and it passes through Zimbabwe and forms part of Victoria Falls’ spectacular landscape. It also provides plenty of activities for those exploring beyond Victoria Falls. There are plenty of spots along the river where you can go bird watching or fishing for tigerfish – a species native to that area. It also provides refuge for some of Africa’s most iconic animals.

Victoria Falls is an unbeatable opportunity to experience one of Africa’s most breathtaking natural wonders. From swimming in Devil’s Pool to white water rafting along the Zambezi River to spotting wildlife at nearby game reserves, this natural wonder will have your whole itinerary booked and busy.
