It is truly a delight to explore all the different angles of this raging white wall of water as it thunders over the edge of the cliffs. One can walk along the path directly opposite the Falls for many different viewpints.
In the dry season one can walk along the actual lip of the Falls. Or you could take the path to the base of the Falls and look up. Some choose to gaze over the Falls from above to appreciate the amazing width and the extent of the gorges it has formed.
Whichever way you choose to see “Mosi-oa-tunya” – the ‘Smoke that Thunders’, just make sure you don’t miss the greatest known curtain of falling water in the world. They are truly a spectacular sight of awe-inspiring beauty and grandeur on the Zambezi River, bordering Zambia and Zimbabwe.
Columns of spray can be seen from miles away as 546 million cubic meters of water per minute plummet over the edge (at the height of the flood season) over a width of nearly two km into a deep gorge over 100 meters below.
The Batoka Gorge carries the mass of water over 23 rapids, making this one of the adventure capitals of the world with world class WHite water rafting, kayaking, river surfing, bunji jumps off the bridge, gorge swings, abseiling down the steep cliffs – all with the most spectacular scenery imaginable.
