09:00hrs – Guided Falls Tour & Village Tour
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”.
The falls are 1,700meters wide with a vertical drop of 100meters. The volume
of water cascading into the chasm at the height of the rainy season is nine
million litres a second.
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
named after the ruler (Mukuni) on arrival from the Congo. It is home to the
Leya people. This tour presents an opportunity to see how the local people
live in a real African village. It has a population of 7,000, a clinic, basic
school and boreholes for drinking water. Clients see how huts are built and
decorated, meet residents and see the locals at work creating curios. After the
tour you will be transferred back to the hotel.
