Victoria Falls, The Adrenaline Center Of Africa

Contributed By John BerryVictoria Falls is one of the most spectacular natural wonders of the world - hence its almost universal appeal to travellers. The mighty Zambezi flows broad and placid to the brink of a 1700m wide basalt lip before taking a headlong 100 meter plunge into the thunderous, frothy chasm of the gorge below. This is the world's largest sheet of falling water.

Once the river has taken its plunge, there is quite a different experience to be had. For those with the courage, the rapids immediately downstream offer some of the most terrifying white water rafting and riverboarding anywhere in the world - the Colorado pales by comparison.

Bungee jumpers scream down 111 meters off the Victoria Falls bridge - until recently, the world's highest commercial bungee jump.

Victoria Falls is the ideal launching point into Botswana, Zambia and the lower Zambezi Valley. The Zambezi Valley, particularly Matusadona and Mana Pools, is an unspoilt and undeveloped wilderness area which is teeming with big game. It is arguably the best place in Africa to do walking and canoeing safaris - the ideal Victoria Falls combination.
