Victoria Falls is a tourist town of Zimbabwe. Flanked by the mighty Victoria Falls, this landmark is a must-see space for our volunteers during their stay. When our volunteers aren’t busy on project, here are the top 10 adventures they can get up to in the area.
There is nothing that better encompasses the African spirit than dinner at the Boma. Enjoy an array of dishes including game meat such as impala, buffalo and kudu, delicious soups, stews and salads, and an incredible display of desserts, while being entertained throughout the evening – with dancing and drumming that you can join in with!
Africa is renowned for its sunsets, and Victoria Falls is no exception. With stunning views overlooking the vast parks in Victoria Falls, the Safari Lodge not only offers you a wonderful setting for the sunset but also has a watering hole that attracts an array of animals. Add a drink to your hand, and you have a perfect afternoon treat!
If a 70m freefall sounds like a blast to you, then the Gorge Swing is the activity you don’t want to miss. The 95m long swing pivots you in the centre of the 316m long and 120m deep gorge. With the choice of jumping forwards, backwards or head first into freefall makes the gorge swing the ultimate leap of faith!
Hit the bush for an evening (or two, or more!) in the Zambezi National Park. With a land mass of 56,000 hectares, the park has amazing game viewing with regular sightings of elephant, giraffes, zebra and much more. The Zambezi National Park also offers camping sites for booking along the Zambezi River or directly in the bush – there’s a place to suit everyone!
It wouldn’t be a trip to Victoria Falls without actually visiting the mighty Falls themselves! Wander through the rainforest of the Victoria Falls National Park where a myriad of different viewing points give an unobstructed view of the falls. As the world’s largest sheet of falling water, this magnificent natural wonder is an incredible sight to see and a must for any bucket list!
