09:00hrs – Guided Falls Tour & Village Tour
The falls are one of the most spectacular site in the world, hence their inclusion in the World Heritage list in 1989. The view of the falls from the Zambian side is the most spectacular, and obviously warrants its designation as one of the seven wonders of the world.
The falls were named after the “Queen of England Victoria” by the first white man to view them, the Scottish explorer and missionary Dr. Dave Livingstone, who on his first visit wrote “Scenes so lovely must have been gazed upon by Angels in their flight.”
The Local people – the Leyas – called the falls “Shungu Namutitima” which means “Smoke that Thunders”. The Kololos called it “Musi oa Tunya”.
There is a paved path leading onto the Knife Edge bridge for a spectacular view up the main gorge and the Eastern Cataract. One can also take a walk down to the Boiling Pot through the rain forest, where steps lead down to the end of the previous fall-line to the bank of the whirlpool, where the Zambezi sweeps from the foot of the falls into the first stretch of the Batoka Gorge. This view gives an interesting perspective from the base of the falls and of the impressive Victoria Falls bridge above the gorge. After the falls tour disembark on your vehicle and
Continue to Mukuni village – founded as Gundu in the 13th century, and later named after the ruler (Mukuni) on arrival from the Congo. It is home to the Leya people.
