The Victoria Falls, one of the most spectacular natural wonders on Earth. It’s known locally as “Mosi-oa-Tunya” which translated to ‘the smoke that thunders’.
A visit to the Falls has to be the first thing on your agenda. The ‘smoke’ from the waterfalls can be seen up to 50 kilometres away, and the ‘thunder’ of the water can be heard from the surrounding areas.
You could, of course, also go for a swim in the Devil’s Pool. Guides are available for a trip to the pool, located right at the edge of the Victoria Falls. It’s a once-in-a-lifetime experience and safety are the guides’ number one priority.
Access to the Devil’s Pool is seasonal and can only be done when the water level of the Zambezi River is low enough. But fear not! From late August to early January is the perfect time for a visit, so book those tickets now!
