3km of gentle walking through the beautiful park, being able to have some awesome views of the fabulous Victoria Falls, was just amazing. Defo worth the wonder through to see.

Well laid out paths. I went with a tour but realised this is not necessary. The guide does give additional information but one can easily follow the paths. Do take a rain coat and water protection for your camera. An experience of a lifetime just seeing these great falls

This is the first time I took my family to visit Vic Falls. The Falls are amazing to watch, the sound is thundering, the views are breathtaking. The park is well maintained and clean, although the toilet facilities must be improved and better maintained.

Third time I visit the falls, but first time in extremely dry conditions. I did not realize how it looked like, up to the bottom. In dry conditions you get a completely different experience, the more we went very early morning. The park was nearly empty, and it gave us a great opportunity to walk around in a quiet forest,...

This place is beautiful! I really enjoyed going to Victoria Falls and experiencing it from both the Zambia and Zimbabwe side. My friends and I went inside Devil's Pool but unfortunately did not have a good experience there due to the weather not being in our favor (lightning, rain and hail) but the Falls are beautiful and I encourage anyone...

The park is laid out well and easy to get around. Liked that inside the gates was free from hawkers. Beautiful, even this theme of year when the water level is low.

The Falls are a must see destination. I had an opportunity to go just because I was here. If you are coming on holiday, come at the end of the wet season, there will be more water. The Falls are majestic from the Zimbabwe side and you can go and sit in a pool, one meter from the edge on... More
