Victoria Falls Town is not only host to one of the Seven Wonders of the World but also welcomes its guests with warm smiles and friendly hospitality. Volunteers stay at Tokki Lodge, a private property for volunteers and staff, complete with a pool, outdoor living space, fire pit and barbecue area. People are incredibly friendly and hospitable and love to welcome you in sharing the beauty of their surroundings. Victoria Falls is a safe town with the most remarkable sunrises and sunsets.
This beautiful area of Zimbabwe is the perfect place to indulge your senses, with the majestic site of the Falls and the sound of its thunder and feel of its spray. An array of wildlife such as buffalo, elephant, baboons, warthog and elephants are common sightings and occasionally lions and leopards have also been spotted nearby. Bushbuck, waterbuck, crocodiles, hyena, hippo and eagles also make their home in the vicinity of the Zambezi waters.
Volunteers can enjoy some unusual cuisine at local restaurants by trying warthog or crocodile meat, and for the less adventurous you will easily be able to find the standard ‘safer’ fare of pizza, burgers, locally grown vegetables and fruits.
Your eyes will be opened to a life far removed from your own and you will leave with a deep sense of gratitude, love for those whose lives you touched and who touched yours and your soul will always thank you for taking this journey in volunteering abroad.
