Looking after hot new travel destinations ? Victoria Falls may be the place you are thinking about. Visiting the Park is the best way to get up close and personal with Vic Falls. From several viewpoints you get the full force of the spray as you take in the 1.7km long waterfall. There is no doubt – you will get wet if you want to get close! It’s easy to spend a couple of hours here walking the trails and taking in one of the 7 Natural Wonders of the World. And for an additional entrance fee you can spend the twilight hours in the park and catch what is always an incredible sunset.
And last but not least, the Devils Pools trip is definitely one of the best things to do in Victoria Falls. Not as physically demanding as some of the other activities on this list, this excursion still requires nerves of steel as you’ll essentially walk to the lip of the falls on the Zambian side and enjoy bathing in a pool that sits on the very edge of the falls before it spills over into the ravine. Combined with either breakfast, lunch or dinner, I reckon this is one of the most memorable things to do in Victoria Falls… and it ought to be for the price! That said, it’s not every day – or possibly for much longer – thaT you get to sit on the edge of one of the 7 natural wonders of the world! Find more details on Book Victoria Falls Hotels.
Other waterfalls are higher (Angel Falls), wider (Iguazu Falls), and even more famous (Niagara), but Victoria Falls is the largest single curtain of cascading water on earth. The falls form part of the border between Zambia and Zimbabwe in south-central Africa and are their premier tourist attraction.
