Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe
Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe is evocatively known as Mosi-oa-Tunya or “The Smoke that Thunders” in the local Tonga language. The waterfall is extraordinarily thunderous, and the billows of mist undulating around the cascade can be seen from 20 miles away. The falls are a result of River Zambezi flowing into a fault line between Zambia and Zimbabwe, and thus are in full force during February and March. Victoria Falls is the largest sheet of falling water in the whole world, embodying the beauty that David Livingstone, could only call “scenes so lovely they must have been gazed upon by angels in their flight.”
Of course such a majestic water spectacle opens up a whole lot of possibilities. Standing at the edge and marveling at it is an experience thrilling in itself, but the riskier swimming at the Devil’s pool (right at the edge), during the months when the current is less powerful (between September and December) creates more memories.
So is bungee jumping & gorge swinging, an adrenaline-filled free fall into the mighty Zambezi, or white water rafting, swimming, paddling at the rapids below.
