days of adrenaline-fueled activities, close-up wildlife encounters, and humbling cultural interactions – all of which center around the areas wondrous Victoria Falls, on the Zambezi River. This is the planet’s largest stretch of falling water, and its sheer enormity and force has powered it into the Seven Natural Wonders of the World and onto UNESCO’s World Heritage List.
Thrilling ways to take it all in are by helicopter or zip line (the longest in the world at 1,395ft) across the gorge. But a leisurely walk through the riverine forest and along the falls is a unique experience, too – there are few major falls that can be viewed on foot at such close proximity. Tempting you to the edge is Devil’s Pool, forming each year at the fringe of the falls when the dry season reduces water levels to reveal, what has been declared, the world’s ultimate infinity pool.
Private game-drives are available for those who want to explore the reserve at their own pace with a dedicated guide. For the more adventurous, take a guided walking safari on the grounds.
