Latest on body of Tinashe Dikinya who fell into 100 metre deep gorge while taking pics in Vic Falls


The Zimbabwe Republic Police (ZRP) and other stakeholders have retrieved the body of a tourist who slipped and fell into the Victoria Falls gorge while taking pictures on New Year’s Day.

The tourist was identified as Roy George Tinashe Dikinya from Harare. His body was discovered on Sunday, stuck between rocks.

Zimbabwe Parks and Wildlife Authority spokesperson Tinashe Farawo announced the development in a tweet late Tuesday. Farawo said:

The body of a tourist who fell into Vic Falls gorge on new year’s day has been retrieved. Thanks to Zimbabwe Republic Police, Zimparks conservation partners & other stakeholders.”

Meanwhile, the government has said it will secure the area around the Victoria Falls gorge to prevent tourists from falling over into the more than 100-metre deep ravine.
