Victoria Falls city
6
  • The Victoria Falls city will simply be confused
    with a tiny, low modern town in the developed
    world.
  • It's clean the buildings are trendy and really
    well maintained
  • The roads are all right paved and marked

National park
  • Within the Falls area may be a lovely forest
  • This forest contains trees in their varieties and
    sizes
  • The national parks contain rife life together
    with sizable populations of elephant, giraffe,
    buffalo, zebra, and a range of bovid

  • Near the sting of the cliff, spray shoots upward
    like inverted rain, particularly at Zambia's
    Knife-Edge Bridge
  • During the season that lasts or so from Sep to
    December, water level in Zambezi falls, jumping
    between the streams that are running down.

High water is from February to July
  • River rafting and stream boarding down the
    zambezi stream is typically closed between middle
    March and early may as a result of the river
    becomes unsafe
  • Its time to relish a scenic helicopter and
    microlight flight over the falls to get the
    complete appreciation of the Zambezi's large
    power.

  • Today, several hundred thousand guests from
    around the world trek to the falls every year
  • The beauty of the falls lies in their state,
    however the area is at some risk of runaway
    tourism-based development
  • More resorts, hotels, and even a potential dam
    below the falls that would flood many park gorges.

    Maramba where complete tourist facilities exist.
