The Victoria Falls bridge is not only an incredible place from which to take in the sheer magnitude of the mile long face of the falls, but also a well known bungee jumping launch point for the adventurous traveler. Having been designed in England, the bridge was transported from Europe in pieces and was assembled on site, bridging the Zambezi River and linking Zimbabwe and Zambia in 1906.
Divided by the Great Zambezi River, Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park sits on the Zambezi side of the falls and Victoria Falls National Park on the Zimbabwean side. The great river forms a border between Zambia and Zimbabwe for much of its length.
Victoria Falls National Park extends along the Zambezi river from the larger Zambezi National Park to below the falls. A notable feature of the park is the rainforest which grows in the spray of the falls and is thick with unique flora and fauna. A hike through out the forests paths which wander amongst the Fig, Mahoganys not seen elsewhere in the region, liana vines and Date Palm groves provides magnificent viewpoints. Many species of birds and small mammals can be spotted beneath the protective canopy of the forest. Elephant, Cape buffalo, southern white rhinoceros, hippopotamus, eland and a variety of other antelope herds can also be seen throughout the park during drives and walking safaris.
Victoria Falls is one of the Seven Wonders of the Natural World and stunning to visit. Rather taking in the plummeting falls from Zambia or Zimbabwe, the bordering national parks, adventure activities and photographic opportunities are not one to be missed on and African safari.
