Victoria Falls Bridge, Victoria Falls

4.5
Walk from Zimbabwe to Zambia or the other way around via Victoria Falls Bridge, spanning the Zambezi River canyon on the border of the two countries and offering a spectacular view of the Victoria Falls. The brainchild of Cecil Rhodes, famous magnate and politician, the 198 m (650 ft) long steel bridge remains the only road link between the two countries. You can take a guided tour focused on the history of the structure--for something a bit different, consider bungee jumping from the bridge.

  • Fantastic Iron Bridge built 1905 that still stands up, you say in passport control on Zimbabwe side that you should see the bridge and come back you will get a small white patch that you show up when you go through the passport control again on the Zimbabwe side so you do not have to show passports. Be vigilant on the heavy traffic narrow walkways

  • We only got to look at the bridge from the end of the Victoria Falls National Park. Undoubtedly an impressive piece of engineering. Didn't see anyone bungee jumping while we were there.  more »

  • This bridge is one of kind, bridging two countries. Breathtaking views of the falls. A good place to watch the sunset. For those dare devils, Bungee jumping is possible.
  • Old bridge with rich history and beautiful views. You can walk to Zambia (only few steps there) from Zimbabwe's side without need of any additional viza. Just walk straight to the bridge with your passport in your pocket (in case some officer asks to see it)
