What Makes Victoria Falls Unique?

Safari Enquiry

It doesn’t get much more unique than the biggest and most dramatic waterfall on the planet: Victoria Falls definitely deserves its mantle as one of the Seven Wonders of the Natural World.

The UNESCO World Heritage Site is enough of a bucket list sight to be a unique place to visit in itself, but the addition of the extraordinary diversity of outdoor activities on offer is what makes Victoria Falls truly unique.

The adventures are seemingly endless: go bungee jumping in one of the world’s most spectacular locations, fly like a bird in a tiny microlight plane, track down endangered White rhinos on foot, swing like a human pendulum across the steep gorge, abseil down a cliff, zipline through the treetops and go cage diving with crocodiles – and that’s just for starters.

On the mighty Zambezi River, you can experience some of the best whitewater rafting on the planet. Tackle rapids face-first on a bodyboard, shoot across the water on a jet boat, and swim in a natural infinity pool on the edge of Victoria Falls.

Go on a relaxing multi-day canoeing safari where you’ll be immersed in the wilderness, spotting elephants from just a few meters away and sleeping on riverside beaches under the stars.

There are many ways to explore the area around the falls, from cycling tours and horseback rides to game drives in the two national parks on either side of the border.

Another reason Victoria Falls is a unique destination is that there’s really something for every kind of traveler in just a small area on either side of the falls. In terms of budgets, there’s a huge range of lodging – everything from riverside campsites to high-end luxury hotels.

Families are well catered to: hotels are child-friendly, and there’s a host of activities for all ages, while solo travelers will find it easy to meet other people and have fun on group activities. Luxury lodges offer lots of special touches for romantic couples and honeymooners, and adventure-seekers will be in their element with the amount of adrenaline-inducing fun on offer.

Travelers who prefer serene activities will discover plenty of quiet pleasures at Victoria Falls. Enjoy high tea on manicured lawns, relaxing spa treatments, sundowner cocktails on sunset river cruises, gourmet dinner onboard an old steam train chugging its way through a safari park, and sipping wine while being paddled on a raft down the Zambezi.
