Activities at Tongabezi

Victoria Falls has enough activities to keep adrenaline junkies entertained for a month. Go white water rafting down the river, fall off the iconic bridge attached to a bungee, take a helicopter ride around the falls or jump into Devil’s Pool at the very edge of the falls and peer below- you’ll never forget this view.Those preferring a more sedate pace can enjoy lunch on Livingstone Island on the very edge of the falls, fly fishing, and boat trips along the Zambezi. For full on relaxation, there’s massage, star-gazing and listening for the call of fish eagles overhead.
