Victoria Falls

​This birthday, visit one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World, Victoria Falls. Victoria Falls, also known as the largest waterfall in the world, is made up of five different falls, four in Zimbabwe and one in Zambia, and is 1700 meters wide. During its peak season, 625 million liters of water move over the edge per minute. Not only are these falls a site to see, they can also serve as your playground. With activities ranging from white river rafting to bungee jumping, there is a plethora of ways to experience Victoria Falls. Since it's your birthday, how about a plunge into Devil's Pool

​​Devil's Pool​

​​Be a daredevil this birthday and take a plunge into Victoria Falls. Located off of Livingstone Island, where missionary David Livingstone first laid eyes on Victoria Falls, you can jump into this natural pool and even float to the tip of the waterfall. At the edge of the Falls, a rock ledge serves as a barrier which allows you to swim to the end but not fall over. It's the natural infinity pool you've been searching for with the adrenaline rush perfect for experiencing another year. Take the Livingstone Island Tour which includes a boat ride through the Zambezi river, a traditional Maheu energy drink and then a trip to the edge of the Falls and Devil's Pool

​Retreat to Tongabezi

Located on the banks of the Zambezi River, this luxury hideaway is just upstream from Victoria Falls. Stay in any one of Tongabezi's six private houses or five river cottages. Located on the private island of Sindabezi, this waterfront property will have you tucked away in the surrounding majestic nature. After a long day exploring Victoria Falls and jumping into Devil's Pool, celebrate your birthday over dinner. Tongabezi has three open air dining decks to choose from or you can eat on an anchored boat in the Zambezi River with waiters serving your food by canoe. Their Zambian food is all fresh, meaning the menu changes with the seasons. Not to mention, the produce comes from their vegetable and herb garden and fruit orchard meaning you get a farm to table meal for your birthday.
