    Enjoy a once in a lifetime helicopter ride and watch from above as the mighty Zambezi River carves its way through the steep cliffs of the Batoka Gorge and transforms from a gentle and serene river into the rampant Victoria Falls that descend 120 metres to the floor of the valley.

    Experience a different type of flying adventure with a microlight flight over the Victoria Falls. Feel the spray of the Falls while soaring over its splendour in a microlight flight which flies above the Victoria Falls and continues upstream over Long Island, Palm Island, Kakunka and Kandahar Islands and finally onto the Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park for a genuine bird’s eye view of the awesome spectacle.

    Get up close and personal with the might of the Zambezi around the Falls in a thrilling white-water rafting experience on the Zambia side of the Falls, steering your way through the powerful rapids under the supervision of experienced river guides.

    Apart from being home to the world’s largest waterfall, Zambia is one of Africa’s most acclaimed adventure and extreme sports destinations. These are just a few activities available exclusively on the Zambian side of Victoria Falls: Take a cable car over Batoka Gorge after an exhilarating white water rafting experience. Fly across the breath-taking Gorge in a helicopter. Soar above Victoria Falls in a microlight aircraft and more.

    Visit the historic Livingstone Island and have a swim at what feels like the edge of the world in the Devil’s Pool. Visitors to the pool often can’t see that the floor of the Falls is 350m down on the other side of the pool – the Falls are world-renowned as ‘the smoke that thunders’ for the rainbowed mist that rises after the water falls such a distance.

    Avani Victoria Falls Resort are proud supporters of Pack for a Purpose , which encourages visitors to pack medical items, pens, toys and more for local communities and help to make a big impact on the lives of children around the world.
