Activity description

Experience the largest waterfall in the world on this hike in the shadow of Victoria Falls.

A bonafide wonder of the world, Victoria Falls aka "Mosi oa-Tunya" ("the smoke that thunders") is positioned almost exactly halfway along the mighty Zambezi River's 2700 km journey from source to the sea. Hike the Botaka Gorge and get to swim in the waters that plunge headlong into a 100m vertical chasm!

This activity takes place in Batoka Gorge near Victoria Falls. The world’s largest waterfall, this hiking excursion navigates Devils Delight at the bottom of the waterfall - about 20km downstream. 

Meet your guide at the activity base near Victoria Falls for this two-hour hiking excursion to Batoka Gorge on the Zambezi River. After a quick safety briefing, you will be transferred downstream to Devils Delight where you will follow your guide down into the Batoka Gorge, past the historic Vic Falls Bridge to the Boiling Pot. From here at the foot of the Falls, manoeuvre across rocky platforms to stand under the spray of the thundering Mosi oa Tunya - taking a dip in the pools with the area’s infamous rainbows curling around you! An amazing experience for anyone wanting to experience the force of the falls without having to raft, be prepared to do some swimming, scrambling and climbing to reach the best freshwater pools in the centre of the gorge. Hike back to the meeting point where your return transport will be waiting to drop you off at your accommodation.

Hike across rocks, stand under the spray of the Victoria Falls and enjoy a dip in the pools. Please note that this activity only operates during low season from September –December. The descent is steep so you need to be reasonably fit to participate.
