Shearwater introduces hikes at Vic Falls
Thursday, 27 February 2014
Shearwater Victoria Falls now offers Zambezi River gorge hikes, allowing guests to explore the Batoka Gorges below the Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe.

The gorge hikes give participants the opportunity to swim in the Zambezi without the unwelcome attention of crocodiles and hippos. The walk in and out of the Batoka Gorge involves a steep 250 metre climb, which is quite strenuous but can be conquered by anyone with a reasonable level of fitness.

There are two hiking options available. The Boiling Pot Hike, or ‘Devil’s Delight’, is available during the low season from approximately August to December. Participants hike down the Batoka Gorge and pass under the Victoria Falls Bridge to the ‘Boiling Pot’ below the Falls where they are ferried by raft to the rocky outcrops below the Falls. The activity is three-and-a-half hours, with two-and-a-half hours of hiking time.

The Batoka Gorge Hike and Ndebele Village Tour is available all year round. The activity includes a 40-minute off-road drive through the Zimbabwean countryside to the starting point of the hike. The hike begins about 20km downstream of the Victoria Falls and is followed by a swim in the Zambezi before the demanding climb out.

Atop the gorge, participants take a short trail through the bush to an authentic Ndebele homestead where they can interact with the local headman and his family while having brunch under the thatched shade of their decorated mud huts. The activity is  four-and-a-half hours, with three-and-a-half hours of hiking time.
