Victoria Falls attractions
Searching after hot new travel destinations ? Victoria Falls may be the place you are dreaming about. The “Flight of the Angels” is one of Victoria Falls most loved attractions. For 15 minutes you glide above the 1700m curtain of water that is the Mosi-ao-Tunya, taking in the very different views from both the Zimbabwe and Zambian sides on this not to be missed Victoria Falls helicopter ride.
It’s getting more scary as we go along, with the Zip Lining definitely up there as one of the most wild things to do in Victoria Falls! This one is run by the company Wild Horizons and after the Flying Fox, it’s the next step up! Also known as the Foofie Slide, Zip Lining works on largely the same premise as the Flying Fox, except the highwire is angled and you speed high across the canyon at around 100km/hr! The most hardcore (and the most insane!) of all the highwire activities on offer, in a gorge swing your harness is attached to a rope, which is attached to the middle of a cable that runs across the full width of the gorge.

Both countries offer a range of accommodations from deluxe to simple guest houses, though many on the Zambian side are in the town of Livingstone, several miles from the falls. Victoria Falls is a frequent add-on to wildlife safaris, whether in Zambia, Zimbabwe, Chobe National Park in Botswana (the nearest major game park) or those further afield. You can also take horseback safaris, elephant rides, or even commune with lions.
Bungee Jumping at Victoria Falls: Top of the Victoria Falls adventure activity list: bungee from Victoria Falls Bridge. Then freefall 111m, 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! About 50 000 people safely jump off Vic Falls bridge every year. The safety record is 99.9% with one non-fatal accident in 2012. Bridge Swing off Victoria Falls Bridge: For a similar mega-rush to the bungee jump, but facing the right way up and secured in a harness, try the Bridge Swing. Then there’s the tandem bungee swing (bridge swing) into the gorge for double the fun. Find extra info on https://visitfalls.com/.
