    Victoria Falls

    Tonight, the adventure begins but feel free to explore your surroundings before your welcome meeting tonight. Your time in the little town of Victoria Falls can be filled with a variety of activities. Take a helicopter or microlight flight over the Victoria Falls, and let your breath be stolen away by the sight of the largest sheet of falling water in the world, cascading across two countries into a narrow gorge. Make sure to visit this UNESCO World Heritage Site, which is also one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World. When you stand in front of the Victoria Falls you will understand why the indigenous tribe the Tonga gave it the beautiful and descriptive name of Mosi-Oa-Tunya (The Smoke That Thunders).  Please be back in time to meet your group at 18:00. After introductions, your Tour Leader will review the details of your trip. Your Tour Leader will recommend a good selection of restaurants from which you can choose to experience the cuisine on offer in Victoria Falls. You can also book an extra day or two pre-tour to make the most of your stay.
