High wire fun in Zimbabwe
Victoria Falls has many draws, with the Falls themselves being the biggest of all. However, when you stand at the beautiful Lookout Café, looking down into the gorge as the white water barrages down, a crazy idea comes to mind … to throw myself into the middle of the gorge! “it’s not scary, it’s fun - I conquered my fears and literally dived straight in!” Not without some sort of rope or wire of course, and I wasn’t brave enough to do the bungee jump off the bridge.
Could you think of anything better than a G&T in hand, camera around your neck, the open Zambezi River ahead and the call of the African Fish Eagle? No, me neither! This was my magical sunset cruise experience on the mighty Zambezi River.

Park fees paid and entry completed, it’s time to enter the park and visit the mighty Victoria Falls! An experienced guide gives a detailed account of the river’s geography, which is incredibly fascinating, and the colonial history of the Falls.

After an early morning wake-up call I get dressed quickly and head to the dining tent for a cup of coffee and muffin before meeting our specialist walking guides, Milton and Rafael, for a short briefing.
A Day at Victoria Falls River Lodge
An early wake up call at 5:30 for a quick cuppa and a rusk before me and my guide, Billy, jump in his boat as the sun starts to glint over the horizon.
