Victoria Falls is a town in western Zimbabwe and a gateway to the massive waterfall of the same name. Here, the Zambezi River plummets over a cliff and into the Boiling Pot before flowing through a series of gorges. The Devil’s Pool, a natural infinity pool, is on the edge of a sheer drop. Spanning the river is 1905 Victoria Falls Bridge. The surrounding Zambezi National Park is home to white rhinos and elephants.
Top of the Victoria Falls adventure activity list – the 111m freefall bungee jump from the Victoria Falls Bridge. Jump headlong towards the rushing waters of the mighty Zambezi River with Vic Falls nearby in the background. If anything is going to kick-start your adrenalin then it’s this bungee jump, one of the highest in the world!
This is not just another ethnic restaurant, but a unique cultural experience. Excellent cuisine, including a variety of game meats and traditional Zimbabwean dishes, is accompanied by entertainment throughout your meal from traditional dancers, the Sangoma (story teller) and a local fortune teller who is available for fortune telling. The Boma is open for dinner from 7.00pm until late 365 days of the year.
Zambezi is a free-flowing river, the water level is not affected by any dams. It is however heavily affected by seasonal natural flow variations. Rafting trips adapt to the changing water levels by “putting on” at different entry points. Generally Late-July to Mid-January the trips put in at the “Boiling pot” directly below Victoria Falls. At this time the Zambezi River is at a relatively low flow, where more of the bedrock is exposed.

After thousands of years of erosion, many rock pools have formed near the great Victoria Falls – and one of them… right on the very edge! Devil’s Pool – with a sheer drop and a up-close-and-personal view of the sheer drop off the side of the falls – is indeed the ultimate infinity pool!
In a small plane, adrenaline seekers soar 10 000 meters into the sky. Without the small plane, they make the 10 000-meter journey back. Prior to the jump, the aircraft flies over the waterfall, giving you a breath taking bird’s eye view of Devils Cataract, Main Falls, Rainbow Falls, and Horseshoe Falls. It then circles back to the drop zone in the National Park, where you will step into masses of open African air. After experiencing the rush of a 200kph free fall, a parachute is released and jumpers soar above the wilderness that stretches into the horizon.
Sunset Cruise trips along the Zambezi are a magnificent and extremely popular way to experience the river. All the boats, bar the jet boats, navigate a 6 km stretch of river above the Falls themselves, shallow waters and hazardous rocks prevent them from venturing any further. Although you do not see the Falls themselves during a cruise, a cloud of spray, visible from the boats, sits on the horizon, crowning the waterfall.
Clients are kitted up in full body harness, ready to abseil 110m down to the bottom taking in the surrounding scenic views. They land on the apron of flat solid rock (Ruware) overlooking the boiling pot and straight ahead the view of the Falls from below. The scenic experience down there is next to none and during hot months you are greeted with a refreshing breeze coming straight from the Falls.
Canoeing above the Falls on the upper Zambezi is the perfect activity for those who not only want to see the abundant bird and animal life but also want to experience the peace, tranquillity and beauty of the Zambezi River. The river is a kilometre wide and in places a bit more. It has an indescribable beauty with crystal clear waters and a myriad of islands and channels to explore
