24 HOURS IN VICTORIA FALLS
Victoria Falls is one of THE sights of Africa. They are phenomenal in every sense. In fact, all senses get a taste of phenomenal. The falls are loud, wet, huge and goose-pimply. Theyâ€™re also one of the best places to try your hand at adventure sports. If youâ€™ve ever wanted to dabble in a bit of bungee jumping or white water rafting, thereâ€™s no better place. Be prepared to get wet, be amazed, spot wildlife, get vertigo and take amazing photos. And donâ€™t forget your wide-angle lens.
8am Make an early start to the falls, because itâ€™s going to be a big day.
10am Put on your raincoat and take a walk along the gorge path stopping at each of the viewing points. One spot we recommend being careful around is Danger Point. Itâ€™s unfenced. Enough said.
1pm Time to get your adventure on. Choose from whitewater rafting, bungee jumping, canoeing, flying fox, a horse-back safari or abseiling. You know, the usual.
4pm Need to dry off? Take a helicopter flight over the falls for insane views. And donâ€™t forget your camera.
5pm Get your heart rate back down to normal with a sundowner. Thatâ€™s an African term for watching the sunset over beautiful landscapes with an alcoholic beverage. Our personal favourite is Zambezi beer. If itâ€™s named after the view, itâ€™s got to be good.
7pm If itâ€™s full moon, the park will be open after dark. Head back for an amazing look at the falls under moonlight.
