Take this awesome picturesque hike down the gorge, under the Victoria Falls Bridge, and experience the splendor of the Victoria Falls from down below. Then take a swim in the pools at the base of the falls. Seeing the Victoria Falls from its base is a breathtaking experience, but there is a rather strenuous hike involved. You have to walk down the Batoka Gorge, go under the Victoria Falls Bridge and take a raft to the base of the Falls. Sounds simple enough, but you do have to be reasonably fit in order to complete this rather physical activity. It takes about 30 minutes to get to the bottom of the gorge, which is almost 110m high (360 feet), with steep steps, rocks, some rafting, and swimming. Then there is the preparation time and rafting across to the other side of the gorge, which takes about 30 minutes. After spending about an hour at the base of the Falls, it takes roughly another hour to get back out of the gorge. The experience though is very enjoyable and worth the time and effort! Activity takes roughly 3 hours 26 minutes.
