Bridge · Tourist Spot
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.
