Victoria Falls: a place to be during alert level 1

It was announced by the President that the National lockdown has moved to alert level one. You know what that means? We can travel across the borders soon and honey, you want to find yourself at the great Victoria falls when that happens.

 

Forming the border between Zambia in the North and Zimbabwe in the South, waters from the mighty Zambezi River spill into a 100-metre-deep canyon over 1.7-kilometre-wide to make Victoria Falls the largest waterfall on the planet.

 

Looking for a place to stay? Don’t you worry. The small town of Victoria Falls is less than two kilometres south of the border to Zambia and the Zambezi River and can be comfortably reached from Botswana, Zimbabwe, Zambia.

 

The vibrant town is close to the Victoria Falls International Airport and is the perfect base for visitors to the Falls and a good departure point for safaris into Botswana. The town has several hotels, including the famous Victoria Falls Hotel, which serves a famous “tea on the terrace”. Apart from Victoria Falls Hotel, you can also stay at Adventure Lodge and Ilala Lodge.

 

Want to know how to spend your time there? Well you can spend a day enjoying the Falls — enjoy a leisurely morning exploring the rainforest paths and viewing the magnificent wall of water from the numerous different viewpoints with the backdrop of chattering monkeys.

 

Also known as the “Adventure Capital of Africa”, it offers adventure-lovers, adrenalin junkies, and outdoor enthusiasts a myriad of exciting activities to try. So, whether you are looking for the thrills and spills of white-water rafting, heart-stopping gorge swings or a more sedate river cruise on the mighty Zambezi, this vibrant and energetic locale has it all.

 

Swim the very edge of the Falls in the naturally formed Devil’s Pool and watch the main torrent of water gushes over the basalt precipice to create heart-stopping views.

 

Bungee-jump off the famed 111m Victoria Falls Bridge; and soak up amazing birds-eye views of the turbulent rapids, the Victoria Falls Bridge and spray of the Falls from the lofty heights of the trees.
