EXTREMELY DANGEROUS DESCENT AND ASCENT
Oct 2021 • Family
The HIKE down is terrifying! The route, although guided , is treacherous and not for the faint of heart. It is through 'shear will' that even the more active of people can carry themselves in and out of that gorge. The exhilarating experience enjoyed on the boat is quickly forgotten as you, in a weakend state already, have to pray yourself up to the safety of level ground - and for the next few days have to wince as you walk around on legs that feel as though you borrowed them from newly born gazelle.

The experience among friends is memorable, but in the lone moments, while biting on your lip as you try to pull up your pants, how you wished it was made more clear just how labour intensive, extreme and Dangerous it would be to get there, Perhaps i would have passed!!!!!

This was my first helicopter ride. The 12 minute ride is all you need. Great way to see the falls in their entirety

Noise pollution
There is no peace and quiet at Victoria Falls anymore. No chance to enjoy the sounds of the bush and the waterfall.
