Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe, Africa #travel

This is a photo of Victoria Falls from the air. During our visit, we saw the magnificent falls from all angles. The flight over was spectacular, but my favorite place to see the falls was from the various view points. You can hear the rumble of the falls from miles away. We also did a sunset cruise on the Zambezi river while my intrepid hubby went white water rafting.

During our visit to the area, I discovered the best T-shirts. I purchased about four and have only one left, which is very thin! I also practiced my Stanley quotes. “Doctor Livingstone, I presume?” *grin*

We were on a budget holiday and stayed at the campground, but we couldn’t resist a visit to the Victoria Falls Hotel, which was built in 1904 and was a first hotel in the area. Following in the footsteps of many famous people, we went a couple of times and had a traditional afternoon tea on the verandah.

I’d love to do a return visit, although some friends stopped there and were disappointed with the amount of water going over the falls. I understand that a dam has reduced the flow.

Apart from the waterfall and the Zambezi river, visitors can see animals and birds, feed the adrenaline junkie within by rafting, bungee jumping, canoeing, and hiking or indulge their love of culture by meeting the locals. There is something for everyone at Victoria Falls.

  1. That sounds really exciting. Not only the falls but to see the animals too.
