Victoria Falls Park - Zimbabwe National Parks
Regarded as one of the worlds' most spectacular natural wonders, Victoria Falls
spreads 1,700 wide and is an awesome sight as it falls into the gorge below.
There a lots of tracks around the rim that lead you to good viewing sports.
The most dramatic of which is Cataract View, Danger Point is also superb, but
the trek to it can be extremely slippery. By far the best view to be had of
the falls is from the air, and if your budget allows - it's not to be missed.
There is such a large variety of activities available all around the area.
Not for the faint-hearted, but fast becoming the most popular for those seeking
an extreme adrenaline buzz is bungee-jumping of Zambezi Bridge. There are
a number of companies offering white water rafting trips just downstream from
the falls, which is host to some of the worlds wildest rapids.
For those seeking something a bit less exhilarating, more relaxing but equally
as enjoyable, the area has excellent walks through the "rain forest",
where you will come across a fair amount of wildlife include, warthog, hippo,
crocodile, antelope, elephants and buffalo. Upstream, a sundowner cruise is
a relaxing and peaceful way to see the wildlife and environment.
Although Victoria Falls is obviously a very popular destinations with thousands
of visitors passing through the area, it is well preserved and unspoilt.
Throughout the whole region there is no shortage of places to stay of varying
style, comfort and cost. Ranging from camping, backpackers hostels, chalets,
lodges, cottages and hotels.
