Whitewater Rafting on the Zambezi River

Through the Batoka Gorge

Approaching the Zambezi River for the first time was like stepping from a room of silence into one of chaos. The rushing water of the river slammed over rocks, creating rapids with chalky white caps. Yet despite this first impression, after taking in a deep breath, it took only seconds to relax amidst the natural beauty.

Touted as the adventure capital of Eastern Africa, Victoria Falls is a stop that shouldn’t be missed on a trip to Zimbabwe. While the falls themselves are the star, it’s the activities in the vicinity that get your adrenaline flowing.

A Helicopter Flight Over Victoria Falls

Victoria Falls, "the smoke that thunders"

Between the borders of Zambia and Zimbabwe lies a giant gash in the Earth’s surface that sends water plummeting and mist high into the air. The locals call it Mosi-oa-Tunya, “the smoke that thunders.” In English, it’s known as Victoria Falls.
