The iconic Victoria Falls located on the Zambezi River along the border of Zambia and Zimbabwe is the largest and most spectacular waterfall in the world with its length more than a kilometre and measures 100 metres in height. Its thrilling nature has given birth to the Victoria Falls Canopy Tour which is very popular in Matabeleland North Province in Zimbabwe.

The highly adventurous three-hour tour costs $60. One of the most exciting moments in the Victoria Canopy Tour is the magical view of Zambezi rapids, the magnificent Victoria Falls Bridge and the Fall’s mist (spray). The Victoria Canopy Tour has nine slides, all different in length and one cable bridge walkway which is a force to reckon with.
