When you arrive at Victoria Falls, you’ll have the chance to do many touristy activities, many of which can be organized directly through your Victoria Falls Hotel. However, if you don’t have much time to do everything there is to do, then there are three activities you’ll definitely want to do. With that said, here are three top activities at Victoria Falls.
1. Bungee Jumping
One of the best things to do at Victoria Falls is jumping, literally jumping off of it. You can head to the Victoria Falls Bridge and then bungee jump off of it. This is a must-do activity for those seeking adventure.
You should do this activity because it is a once-in-a-lifetime chance to do something exciting and something you might not get to do again. When you get to the bridge and take the leap, you will be treated to exciting views of the waters below, as well as views of the Falls. Not many things can get your adrenaline pumping while treating you to views at the same time, but bungee jumping from the bridge at Victoria Falls will do just that.
It’s worth noting that this jump is one of the highest. All you have to do is book a spot and you’re good to go. It’s advised to book as soon as possible because you’ll want to secure a spot on the day you’re planning to visit Victoria Falls.
2. White Water Rafting
Between April and May you can’t really do white water rafting, but do feel free to go any other time. Just make sure you double check you can do this activity on the day you want to do it. However, the absolute best times to go white river rafting down the Zambezi River is between July and February. This is when water levels tend to be at their lowest.
You should do white river rafting because it’s the perfect blend of being a scenic activity and an adrenaline pumping activity. You can easily spend half a day doing it or even an entire day, so you’ll want to put aside a bit of time, but don’t worry because white river rafting at Victoria Falls is not boring. If you’re after excitement and you want to see Victoria Falls and the surrounding area in a unique way, then definitely go white water rafting.
Book ahead of time. This is one of the most popular activities to do. Trust us when we say you will not soon forget this experience.
3. Devil’s Pool
Devil’s Pool is a rock pool and it’s the ideal thing to do for those who don’t want to jump off a bridge, white river raft or other adventure-like activities. However, this will get your adrenaline pumping because it is located very high and you can actually look over the edge and gaze down from the Falls. There is nothing like Devil’s Pool, which actually provides you with the chance to relax too because you can simply sit in it without looking over the edge.
You can take a guided tour to Devil’s Pool, but you can really only go if it’s the dry season or when the water levels aren’t that high, otherwise it wouldn’t be safe to swim in it. Best of all, you get to enjoy a boat ride and a short walk to get to the pool. You’ll also have to do a short swim to get to the Pool.
Have you ever tried bungee jumping or white water rafting? Have you ever been in a rock pool that lets you look over the edge of a massive waterfall? If not, then you’ll want to head over to Victoria Falls and do all of those activities.
