Victoria Falls has been listed as one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World and it is designated as an UNESCO World Heritage site.
In bare terms, the water of the Zambezi River plummets into the gorge to a depth of over 100 meters and at high tide across a breadth of 1.7 km.
However, these dry facts do nothing to describe the highly impressive and emotional reality of the Falls. A visit both in the morning and in the afternoon is recommended, because the sun shines into the gorge from noon onwards and often creates several rainbows in the spray. Guests should take their time to savour the visit, the incredibly loud thunder, the always changing, but hypnotic sight of the falling water, the fresh smell of the river and, of course – depending on the season, the occasional or almost constant shower from the spray.
The guided tour takes about 2,5 hours and allows us to have a look at the impressive vista that opens up from every viewpoint.
After our visit to the Falls, we enjoy lunch in the Look Out Café before we depart to our next exciting destination: Chobe National Park in Botswana!
The destination is the Ichingo Chobe River Lodge. It is the perfect platform to experience all that the Chobe has to offer with the added benefit of being on the Namibian side of the river. Quieter, more secluded and personalized the lodge to enjoy the very best of an African river safari. Accommodation consists large air-conditioned Meru safari tents, each beautifully turned out with its own private balcony overlooking the Chobe rapids and an en-suite bathroom
Dinner will be served in the lodge.
