Victoria Falls Bridge
The Victoria Falls Bridge, World's Loveliest?
I spent much of my time at Victoria Falls looking into tumbling walls of water. A bit less overwhelming, and more picturesque, is the elegant steel bridge that was built here in 1905. You get a beautiful view of it while doing the standard Vic Falls walk. Commissioned as a rail link by the mining magnate Cecil Rhodes, who never lived to see it, this bridge connects Zambia and Zimbabwe. It’s also home of one of the gnarliest bungee jumps on the planet.
