Victoria Falls Things to Do: 193 reviews and 341 photos


After clearing the Zimbabwean immigration, we drive slowly over the bridge. A famous landmark, the bridge was completed in 1905 as part of Cecil Rhodes' dream of building a railway from Cape to Cairo.

The bridge now carries cars, pedestrians and trains side by side - all at the same time if necessary.

If you so wish, you may jump off the bridge with an elastic band attached to your ankles. We don't.
