A trip to Zimbabwe is not complete without experiencing the colossal power and outstanding beauty of the Victoria Falls, one of the seven natural wonders of the world.
Trailing along the border of Zambia and Zimbabwe, the Zambezi River transforms from a calm stream to a ferocious torrent, as the entire weight of the lake drops across a 108m stone wall into the gorge below.
The cascading columns create a thick curtain of water, throwing a cloud of shimmering mist and immerging rainbows into the air which can be seen from several kilometres away. Walk across the misty chasm to one of the many vantage points to view this UNESCO site, with the option of being able to cross over to the Zambia side for a small transit fee.
Just a quick flight or drive away from Botswana, this natural wonder is a magnificent way to end your holiday. The wildlife havens of Botswana and the Vic Falls, the immense strength of the Zambezi River, pair together beautifully for a trip filled with awe-inspiring spectacles.
