I continue this week with more images of Victoria Falls. It is almost impossible to capture the full splendour of this 108 metre high and over 1700 metre long marvel of nature.
Victoria Falls Rain Forest
The Victoria Falls Rainforest is an area of dense woodland vegetation which is very different from the surrounding vegetation. It stays lush and green all year round and has developed as a result of and nourished by the constant spray from the waterfall. This dense forest only exists where there is year round spray from the waterfall.
Victoria Falls – Main Section
It is not always possible to get a clear photo of the main section of the falls due to the heavy mist.
Bushtracks Express Steam Locomotive
The locomotive pulling the Bushtracks Express train is steam driven and adds to the nostalgia of this relaxing sunset tour. Guests are welcomed aboard with a drink and red carpet. Boarding takes place through the lounge car where more drinks and snacks are offered and guests can get comfortable before starting the journey to the Victoria Falls Bridge and back.
Victoria Falls – Aerial View
Taking a helicopter flight over the falls is the best way to appreciate the sheer size of this natural wonder.

The Grey Hornbill is a common resident in open woodland and savannah areas of Southern Africa. It feeds mainly on insects, seeds, rodents, fruit and small reptiles.
The Mist of Victoria Falls
Every view of Victoria Falls is different and it’s sheer power, size and beauty never ceases to amaze me.
Elephants from the Sky
The helicopter pilots of Zambezi Helicopter Company stay at a safe distance from wildlife in order not to startle them and cause anxiety.
