Yesterday I visited Victoria Falls, which has been a bucket list item for awhile!
It’s impossible to describe the falls – they are absolutely magical! The size and strength behind them, and pure beauty, is just stunning.
The falls are considered one of the 7 Natural Wonders of the World, and for good reason! Niagra Falls, Iguazu Falls (which I’ve been to in Argentina) and Victoria Falls are the top 3 largest waterfalls in the world, when looking at height, width and size.
The first 6 or 7 stops along the trail you stay pretty dry, with just light mist from the falls.
After that you get absolutely soaking wet as you get closer to the falls – it feels like it’s just pouring rain outside. I brought my poncho but decided to just wrap up my backpack instead and took in the full experience of getting soaked!
The strength of the falls is just incredible! Since it’s rainy season here it’s becoming high season for the falls, so they’re starting to get pretty full!
Below you can see the mist coming into the photo.
