From Baby Boomers to Millennials—Victoria Falls Has It All

Posted on April 23, 2017, featured in Press

Yes, we all know that Baby Boomers are the ones with the disposable income and loads of free time. They’re jetting across the globe and checking off their bucket lists faster than you can stamp a passport. Well, that might be true for now. But as the largest generation in history, Millennials are well on their way to becoming the leaders in travel and tourism.

Now, does that mean Baby Boomers are going to be pushed aside by this next generation of travelers? It most certainly does not. Millennials are simply going to pick up the mantle and move the traveling experience in different directions.

What exactly does that mean? For starters, Millennials aren’t satisfied to merely “visit” a country. They want a hands-on, authentic experience where they can immerse themselves in the culture—creating new and exciting trends that will change the travel industry for years to come.

Whether you are a globe-trotting Baby Boomer or a backpacking Millennial, 0ne thing is for sure, Victoria Falls has something for everyone. Here are just some of the reasons why this amazing vacation hot spot is perfect for all generations.

The Falls

File this in the “no-brainer” category. But if you’re going to list off reasons to travel to this stunning city of Africa, gazing at all the wonder and sheer beauty that is Victoria Falls has to come in first. This breathtaking waterfall is not only one of the Seven Wonders of the World, but also creates the biggest curtains of falling water seen anywhere on the planet. At a dizzying 108 metres high and 1708 metres wide, with a flow rate of 700,000 cubic metres per minute, it’s easy to see why this majestic watery spectacle is a must-see attraction for travelers of all ages.

Devils Pool

If you’re looking for the perfect place to marvel at Vic Falls, then Devils Pool is where it’s at. But keep in mind, it is not for the faint of heart—after all, it didn’t get its name for nothing. To get into the water, you’ll have to plunge in from the rocks above. Don’t worry, there are friendly guides at your beck and call, helping you safely dive into one of the most mind-blowing pools Africa has to offer.

Victoria Falls Bungee Jumping

For all you thrill seekers out there (yes, we’re talking to the Baby Boomers too), bungee jumping at Victoria Falls can’t be beat. Strap yourself in and plunge headfirst towards the rushing waters of the mighty Zambezi River. Oh…and just in case you didn’t already know, that’s a 111 metre freefall, making it one of the highest bungee dives in the world. If that’s not enough to get your heart pumping, we don’t know what is!

Helicopter Flights over Victoria Falls

For a spectacular bird’s eye view of Victoria Falls, nothing quite compares to riding a helicopter over one of the Seven Wonders of the World. Called “The Flight of Angels,” your helicopter journey will take you high above the falls for an aerial view like no other. When you’ve had your fill of gazing at Victoria Falls (as if you ever could), fly upstream to soak in some unforgettable game viewing. Need we say more?

Sunset Cruises on the Zambezi

After an adrenaline-fueled day, what could be better than a relaxing trip down the Zambezi River? Hop on board a gorgeous sunset river cruise, and watch the sun melt into the horizon. Sit back, unwind and let the rich colours of the sunset wash over you while you sip on a scrumptious sundowner.  Don’t forget to keep an eye out for wildlife—this is Africa after all.

Victoria Falls, with its breathtaking adventure and natural splendour, is truly the ideal destination for Baby Boomers and Millennials alike.
