The Victoria Falls represent an incredible natural spectacle, a jewel set in Southern Africa, located along the Zambezi River and marking the border between Zimbabwe and Zambia.

Their spectacularity is due to the great mass of water flowing into the rocky gorge, creating a sound similar to a roar of a mythological creature or a thunder; In the local language in fact they are called "smoking thunder"; The water makes a jump higher than 100 meters.

From the naturalistic point of view, the waterfalls are a unique microclimate, the cloud of water droplets rising from their forehead in fact is responsible for a subtropical forest that lives in its immediate vicinity.

Close to the Victoria Falls it is possible to perform several activities, some of which are perfect for those who love adrenaline such as bungee jumping or rafting on the rapids that are formed inside the  rocky gorges down the falls.
