Victoria Falls is an place of interest in and of itself, and there are so many things to do in that part of Zimbabwe. Did you know that the total height of Victoria Falls is 355 feet? It is a majestic site, as are the other natural attractions in the area. It’s time for you to discover 3 of the top adventurous activities in Victoria Falls.
You are certainly going to be checking out Victoria Falls National Park. That is where you will see the waterfall, and there are plenty of other things to do in the area. Did you know that Victoria Falls is also called ‘the smoke that thunders?’ People report visiting the national park and the waterfall during the dry season still being lovely. Hopefully, however, you can plan a visit when you can see the waterfall in full swing. According to reviews, a visit to Livingstone Island while you are in that area would also be a great adventure, although it is on the Zambia side.
You can still see the waterfall from the Zambia side, but you will just be in a different area. You could visit both, however, and that sounds like a plan. This next place is very interesting, and it would certainly be an adventure. The attraction is Victorian Falls Snake Park, and yes, you get to see and hold snakes. Does that sound fun and make you a little nervous. It would make me nervous, but it would be an adventure.
Victoria Falls Snake Park is located at 273 Adam Stander Drive. The snakes there aren’t just any snakes. They have some of the biggest and most deadly snakes at that place. There are also scorpions and spiders. Naturally, when it comes to opportunities for snake handling, you aren’t going to be holding the venomous snakes. I certainly wouldn’t want to do that even if they offered. This is a cool place to stop by for sure, don’t you think? It is certainly one of those types of experiences that you don’t have too often, if ever again.
Crocodile Ranch is the 3rd adventurous activity to experience when you are in Victoria Falls. How would you like to hold a baby crocodile? Hey, it’s another one of those experiences that you might not have again. The only thing I don’t like about this place is that there is a curio shop. The shop sells leather products, and you know how they make the leather. It would be cool to see the crocodiles though, and you get to feed them, too.
So there you have it, the top 3 activities in Victoria Falls. You and your family will certainly enjoy your adventures, but I have a few other things to tell you about. You can go scuba diving and snorkeling, including a crocodile cage diving experience. You can also enjoy kayaking, canoeing and much more. The Elephant’s Walk Shopping and Artist’s Village is said to be a really unique experience, and you might even consider a helicopter tour. It would be a neat way to check out Victoria Falls for sure.
There are also historical heritage tours that you can take. You can certainly see that you’re not going to run out of things to do. You can organism and book most of these tours directly through your Victoria Falls Hotel, just ask them at the front desk.Have a great time in Victoria Falls, and see if you don’t want to come back for more. It is going to be a blast, and you are going to want to be sure that you make it by the top 3 places of interest mentioned and perhaps some of the bonus activities as well.
