I’m going to go ahead and admit something shocking; I wasn’t that impressed when I first saw Victoria Falls Zambia
It’s an amazing place but because I was there in the dry season, it just wasn’t a ‘wow’ place since, instead of the continual sheet of water thundering over the top, there were several smaller (but still huge) waterfalls, the gorge seemed smaller than I thought it would be and it just didn’t set my heart on fire as much as I thought it would. Rumour has it (and from what we could see) the Zimbabwe side is much better in dry season. Victoria Falls isn’t perfectly flat, it tilts like a set of scales and the Zambia side is at the top meaning that all the water heads into the Zimbabwe side so remember that if and when you visit…a stop in both countries might be all worthwhile!
However, the beauty that I saw whilst at Victoria Falls Zambia? That’s a whole other story because I fell in love with it. Seeing rainbows everywhere, the beautiful views of the gorge and being able to walk on the very edge of Victoria Falls in Zambia more than made up for my initial disappointment. As you walk along the viewpoint trail and bridge you have these almighty views surrounding you. Rainbows to your right, rafting gorges to your left and another country right in front of you; it’s hard not to fall in love with Victoria Falls in Zambia.
Victoria Falls is a beautiful place with a lot of activities offered against its backdrop and you can even walk with lions locally or play a game of golf. Golf may not sound exciting to you but if you love the sport and want amazing views, it’s definitely the place to do it. I used to play when I was younger and let me tell you, there are plenty of golf courses around the world that offer you amazing scenery!
One of the best things about seeing Victoria Falls Zambia in the dry season is the fact that, away from the fenced view point, you can walk over the falls themselves. Actually get off the track, walk over rocks and see the view from the very edge of Victoria Falls Zambia over 100m up. You do it at completely your own risk but the pay off is incredible!
I think I was more nervous about climbing over the rocks and dropping my camera than I was sitting at the edge of Victoria Falls Zambia but I faced my fear and climbed over into the middle of the falls to take this amazing photo.
That’s when I realised that there was a much better photo I could take…
Life is about being scared but living anyway right?!
