24 hours in Victoria Falls
Read time: a bit over 1 minute
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. They’re also one of the best places to try your hand at adventure sports. If you’ve ever wanted to dabble in a bit of bungee jumping or white water rafting, there’s no better place. Be prepared to get wet, be amazed, spot wildlife, get vertigo and take amazing photos. And don’t forget your wide-angle lens.
8am Make an early start to the falls, because it’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. It’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 don’t forget your camera.
5pm Get your heart rate back down to normal with a sundowner. That’s an African term for watching the sunset over beautiful landscapes with an alcoholic beverage. Our personal favourite is Zambezi beer. If it’s named after the view, it’s got to be good.
7pm If it’s full moon, the park will be open after dark. Head back for an amazing look at the falls under moonlight.
