The Victoria Falls are an absolute must do when visiting this area. We were staying close to Livingstone so started our experience from the Zambian side, but because we had the Kasa Visa or Uni Visa we could experience the falls from either side. We therefore started by leaving Zambia and heading over the magnificent Victoria Bridge before entering Zimbabwe.... More

Nice little park, be sure to rent a poncho so you don't get soaked! Nice little paths around to different viewing areas. Beautiful site, views will change with water levels, so plan accordingly!

The walking tour is spectacular and WET. YES you get the spray from the falls almost all the time but it is part of the experience..........and rain gear is provided. The views are breath taking, the terrain flat and an easy walk. This is a photographers dream!

This is one of Africa and the world's real treasures. Spend 3 to 5 days at victoria falls and experience some of the best in African nature and scenery. The locals are lovely. There are good accommodation options, it's not expensive at all (great value actually), it's accessible and safe. Amazing food and experiences to be had. Add it to... More

All I could say is WOW! Seeing the falls With my own eyes was like a dream come true.Visited the park during October. It was dry season then. There is more water on the Zimbabwean side than in Zambia.

The majesty of these falls is simply overwhelming. Grant that I haven't seen many large-scale falls before, but the views were breath-taking in March, when the water was very high.

Photo's do not do these falls justice. They are magnificent when in full flow, which is from March - May. Even with a poncho, you still get wet. So if you are travelling somewhere straight after visiting the falls, make sure you have a change of clothes, because otherwise you will be spending a long time in wet clothes.

The Vic Falls remains a truly wonderful sight every time you experience it. The walk through the falls is quite refreshing. Viewing from the Zim side gives you the best different angles of the actual Falls - and yes, you get very wet through the walk. An obvious must do when in Vic Falls

What an amazing sight . To see it at ground level is amazing. To see it from the air is even better. If the guide suggests a cape .... heed his advice. When the wind is blowing, you will get soaked and I mean soaked !! Take a plastic cover of some sort for your camera as well. March was... More

I recommend visiting twice in your lifetime, once during dry season and once near the end of rainy season.
