Friendly, qualified guides will explain the history along with detailing the flora, fauna, bird and wildlife. They are also helpful when it comes to assisting with memorable photographs. 

Alternatively, helicopter (the Flight of Angels) and microlight flights show the view from above while white water rafting will have you gazing up in wonder.

In Zambia, the greatest falling curtain of water on this planet, can be enjoyed from below, the edge or above. 

Adventurists can walk down the gorge and paddle across the boiling pot in a raft before swimming and relaxing in rock pools close to the cascading curtains. 

Alternatively, walking tours reveal phenomenal vistas of the Eastern Cataract, Main Falls and the Boiling Pot. Vantage points include bridges, the Lookout Tree and a path along the edge of the forest.

Then again, the breathtakingly beautiful views revealed from a helicopter is something else entirely. Perhaps the most thrilling yet safe activity of them all is swimming in Devil’s Pool, a fascinating natural infinity pool that allows you to peer over the edge.
