Visit of the Falls
A small natural park gives access to the falls. Due to the elevated temperature and the humidity, a rainforest has developed in vicinity of the falls.
A special experience is a flight over the falls by helicopter. Adventurous people may opt for a river rafting trip in the rapids of the lower Zambezi. And those who love Bungee Jumping will not miss a 108m jump from the bridge over the vortices of the Zambezi River.
