The Victoria Falls
The Victoria Falls are one of the natural wonders of the world. The locals refer to it as “Mosi Oa Tunya” that roughly translates to the smoke that thunders. The apt name came from the thundering roar that surrounds the Victoria Falls as the waters of the Zambezi River shower down over the lip of the falls.
The area around the falls is full of little paths that one can walk down to view this phenomenon of nature. During this walk, you will come across hornbills, monkeys and baboons in their natural element. By booking your visit with African Safari Dealz we’ll make sure that you experience all this and more. The following is a detailed breakdown of thing to check out during you Victoria Falls visit.
The devil’s pool
During the dry season, you should visit the Victoria Falls from Zimbabwean side. From this side, you will be able to view the unique geology of the rocks and surrounding area of the falls. The Zambian side offers thrill seekers a chance to enjoy the Devil’s Pool. This is a section at the top of the falls where tourists can swim in the waters right up to the edge of the falls.
Visit the statue of Livingstone
On the Zambian side of the falls, you can interact with local artists who sell souvenirs and take pictures with the statue of David Livingstone. David Livingstone was a Scottish explorer who named the falls.
Sunset cruise on the river
The waters of the Zambezi River are deep enough to accommodate boats that offer river cruises above the falls each evening. This gives tourists a unique view of the beautiful sunset and aesthetically pleasing view of the scenery around the falls. While on this cruise, there is a high chance that you will get to see some hippos in the water.
The surrounding area of the falls is home to lots of wildlife. You can go for game drives and see elephants, lions, rhinos and many more.
