The Angel’s Pool

One of the reasons to visit Victoria Falls is to see the waterfall’s Angel’s Pool. Located on the opposite side of the waterfall, this pool is often filled with a mist, making it an unforgettable sight. The water in Angel’s Pool is usually higher during the rainy season, from mid-August to early January/mid-February. You’ll find that it is far safer to swim in this pool, as it sits farther away from the falls, providing more safety and comfort. Besides, this pool gives you a better view of the waterfall.

When the Devil’s Pool is closed due to high water levels, the Angel’s Armchair is a better option. It is not as close to the edge of the water, but is still beautiful. If you’re traveling with children, consider bringing a pair of swimsuits to avoid any trouble. Angel’s Armchair is another great option. A trip to Angel’s Armchair is not only much cheaper, but also a more comfortable option for you and your children.

You can swim in Angel’s Pool even during the dry season. It’s much smaller than Devil’s Pool, but it’s equally as spectacular. The Devil’s Pool is more famous, but Angel’s Pool is much less popular. You can swim in it if the water levels are low enough to protect the pool from the rain. It is also much more accessible during the dry season.

Visiting Angel’s Pool is just part of the Livingstone Island adventure. Previously, there were unofficial “tour guides” that offered tours at lower prices. However, this has changed in recent years, as the Livingstone Island tour is very strictly regulated. You must hire a boat to reach the island and explore the falls. While you can explore the island on your own, it’s not advisable. There’s a high risk of getting arrested if you attempt to cross the border to get to the Devil’s Pool.

Zambezi National Park

If you’re considering visiting the famous Victoria Falls, you must take some time to explore Zambezi National Park. This park is home to numerous animals, including hippos and crocodiles. You can also catch a glimpse of crocodiles during the Wet season, when the Zambezi River is flowing to its fullest. And for a day that’s free of crowds, you should take a trip to the Zambezi River.

While you’re in Zimbabwe, be sure to buy a safari visa. Although there are several options for this visa, it is still necessary to obtain a visa before traveling. While some countries may waive this requirement, you should still plan ahead. Buying a Kaza Univisa will allow you access to Zambia and Zimbabwe for 30 days. Luckily, the government of Zimbabwe has recently loosened its visa requirements to make traveling easier for visitors.

If you’re into extreme sports, the Victoria Falls region offers plenty of opportunities. In addition to soaking up the spectacular scenery, you can try various water sports. White-water rafting on the Zambezi River is one of the most popular activities here. Those who are adventurous may also want to try the zip line in Batoka Gorge, which spans 120 metres above the Zambezi River. Other activities in the area include cable sliding and fly fishing.

Accommodation in the area is also plentiful, and many of these facilities are close to the falls. The town has excellent infrastructure, including lodging, restaurants, bars, and curio shops. Taking a scenic safari through the park is another great reason to visit Victoria Falls. You can see elephants, giraffe, and other animals roaming freely, and you can also experience the wildlife in its natural habitat.

Activities

Activities at Victoria Falls include bird watching and river rafting, as well as a visit to the magnificent waterfalls. This site is home to unique plants and animals. This world-renowned natural wonder is situated on the border of Zambia and Zimbabwe. For the most part, visitors to the area choose a leisurely pace and explore the local culture and wildlife. During your visit, you should make time for a leisurely walk or cycle to the falls.

If you’d rather spend your day a little more active, you may want to consider bungee jumping, gorge swinging, and zip-lining. There’s also a unique cultural experience to enjoy in the Boma restaurant, including stories told by sangoma and drumming. Regardless of your level of activity, there’s something for everyone! Activities at Victoria Falls can be enjoyed individually, with family, or with friends.

The Zambezi River flows through the region, and the Zambezi Falls is one of Africa’s seven natural wonders. This breathtaking waterfall is the largest sheet of falling water in the world, and it spans the entire width of the Zambezi River. Visitors can enjoy a wide variety of water sports while exploring the area, which is known for its diverse wildlife. However, visitors are advised to call ahead to confirm current opening hours before arriving.

The best time to visit the Victoria Falls is during the high water season, which lasts from January to early May. This is when the Zambezi River is at its highest, and you can enjoy white-water rafting at the falls as well. The rapids in Victoria Falls vary depending on the season. In February and March, the water levels are too high to raft. Moreover, you should avoid rafting in this season.

Spirituality

If you are looking for a place that combines adventure and spirituality, look no further than Victoria Falls. The waterfall itself is the manifestation of the Zambezi River, which rises in Zambia and flows through Angola, Namibia, Botswana, Zimbabwe, and Mozambique before emptying into the Indian Ocean. During certain times of the year, people from different communities gather by the falls for a religious ceremony. The ceremony lasts for one to two days, but preparation for it starts a week before. It includes dancing and rituals, appeasing the spirits, making rain, and addressing disease.

Despite the attraction of the waterfall, there are other benefits to visiting Victoria Falls. For one, there is a deeper connection to nature. This place is a sacred space, a site of spirituality is quite common and can enhance the spiritual experience of any traveler. It is also a place where you can learn more about the local culture. There are many African festivals and traditional rituals to attend, so you will be able to find one that is meaningful to you.

If you want to experience a different perspective on the natural wonder, you can go for a helicopter ride or boat ride. The waterfall is a must-see attraction, and the rainy season will make it even more special. The full moon in August is particularly special, so you may want to visit the falls for this experience. The full moon also helps the Falls open up for three nights during the lunar cycle.

A waterfall is a place of reflection for many. While the waterfall is a spectacular sight, there is a deeper meaning to its creation. It is also home to a wide variety of animals, including warthogs and baboons. Baboons scratch each other’s backs, while warthogs roam the streets in search of treats. A visit to this place should be a high priority for many people.
