The Smoke That Thunders (Victoria Falls)
Victoria Falls is the biggest sheet of falling water in the world: twice as high and 1.5 times wider than Niagara Falls. It’s 1.7 km wide (just longer than a mile) and over 100 metres high. There are no words to describe what it feels like to see it for the first time. Breath-taking and awe-inspiring, maybe, but even they don’t do it justice.
Dinner at the Boma Restaurant
Food is cooked on-the-spot for you: choose what you are brave enough to try – warthog, kudu, impala; or the more conventional beef, pork and chicken. The enigmatic MC will carry you through the night’s entertainment, which includes traditional dancing, singing and drumming. After dessert, every guest is given an African drum (njembe) and taught some African rhythms. Gimmicky and cheesy? Maybe. A great night of entertainment for young and old? Absolutely.
Sunset River Cruise
Are you not a fan of adrenalin activities? Or so wired up by your bungee jump that you need some time to chill? A river cruise allows you to take a break and enjoy the natural beauty of the Zambezi River with a refreshing beverage in your hand.
Gorge Swing or Zipline
All jump enthusiasts should do the gorge swing. It’s higher than the bungee jump and offers a better chance to see the beauty of the gorge when you’ve reached the bottom (mainly because you’re not upside down).
See the Falls from a helicopter
This is usually one of the highlights of visitors to Victoria Falls. Although most people don’t like heights, they absolutely love the helicopter ride because it shows them the sheer size of the Zambezi River, Victoria Falls and the gorges.
