The crash of the falls spray of mist one of the wonders of the world...
Luxury Safaris in the South Luangwa National Park
The Victoria Falls; one of the most spectacular natural wonders of the world, known to the locals as "Mosi-oa-Tunya" meaning the smoke that thunders.
The towering mist of spray that constants rests in the air is the smoke behind natures fire of the power of falling water, the terrifying drop to the more tranquil lagoons upstream the Victoria falls inspires many a safari traveller.
The Falls are 1 708 meters wide, making it the largest waterfall in the world. It drops between 90m and 107m into the Zambezi Gorge below with tremendous power. An average of 550,000 cubic metres of water crashes over the edge every minute.
During your stay at Victoria Falls there are a number of activities can be undertaken. The 'Flight of Angels' provides a fabulous vista of the falls, the upstream river and its many islands, and for the more adventurous there is microlighting, bunge jumping, white water rafting, kayaking, and elephant back rides along the river. There are also good game viewing opportunities in the Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park.
Victoria falls inspires visitors today just as much as it did David Livingstone in the 1860's. The falls and since been declared a World Hertigage Site and the nearby area a National Park thus preserving the location from excessive commercialisation. The Falls are spectacular throughout the year, and work well as the starting or ending point for any safari in Southern Africa.
