Explore The Smoke That Thunders
“The world is full of magic things, patiently waiting for our senses to grow sharper.” – W.B. Yeats
At Victoria Falls, Yeats’ world of magic things lies in wait more than ever – from a rainbow’s dance at full moon to the cascade of one of the world’s most spectacular natural wonders. We invite you to discover just why this marvel, set some 30 kilometres downstream from our setting on the Zambezi River, is considered the Adventure Capital of Africa.
There are so many ways to experience the largest curtain of falling water in the world – a title granted due to the Falls’ width (a hefty 1,708 metres or 5,604 ft) and height (a towering 108 metres or 354ft).
Slip through the Zambezi’s ravine on a white-water rafting cruise or fly overhead in a microlight or helicopter – a chopper ride you can continue to our private helipad at Royal Chundu. Test your nerves in nature’s infinity pool at Devil’s Pool and feel the Falls’ spray on your cheeks on Zambian soil or a border hop away, in Zimbabwe. Make it a whole day adventure on a tour that combines several unique ways of experiencing Mosi-oa-Tunya, as named by the Toka Leya tribe, or Shimenda Abila, so called by the local people, meaning, ‘The Smoke that Thunders’.
