When it comes to things to do in Victoria Falls, or deciding what to do in Victoria Falls it can be a difficult choice. There are so many activities of world class standing it is a perplexing choice. Of course most people when arriving in the Falls – whether they take a transfer bus from the airport, or opt for the prestige service, generally start with a classic sunset cruise. This is a nice soothing and pleasant introduction to this wonderful part of Africa.
Next morning for most starts with a tour of the falls – the star of the whole show without a doubt – but this inevitably leads to a wish to see it from different perspectives and many plum for one of the best activities in Victoria Falls: the flight of angels helicopter ride over the falls. The energetic also opt for a gorge hike and get to witness the falls from the bottom up.
It soon becomes apparent however that there is a surplus of things to do but a dearth of time. The adventurous love the thrill of white-water rafting – the Zambezi offers the best grade 5 white-water rafting experience on the planet, the more contemplative like the theatricals of the historic bridge tour. You generally have to be something of an adrenaline junkie to determine on a bungee jump from the iconic Victoria Falls bridge or perhaps a swing or slide – perhaps all three in a big air combo. Everyone though loves the allure of an elephant back safari which can often be a foretaste of the dramatic game sightings on a Chobe day trip.
So much to do sure works up the appetite, and Shearwater offers to great dining experiences : The Rainforest Café– perfect for breakfast or lunch following a tour of the falls, and the urbane, chic and cool Shearwater Café which is great for all meals including dinner.
The Shearwater Café has always had a ‘’jazz’’ soundtrack as background music, but we now have live local Jazz musicians on Friday and Saturday evenings and Sunday lunchtimes. With the misters now turned on to provide refreshing mist spray, the vibes at the Café are cool, cool, cool.
What to do in Victoria Falls may mean you are spoilt for choice, but when it comes to things to do in Victoria Falls of a dining nature, the choice is best served at Rainforest Café or Shearwater Café.
