Go late April early May when the falls are in full flow. Some great hotels to stay in, loved every second

The Falls alone are really one of the world's seven wonders! The entrance to the park is quite expensive, but it is definitely worth going!

It was a Mission Trip and this was our last day in Zimbabwe. Great "resort" trappings especially after some of our camping adventures. The falls, the eternal rainbow and the "rain" path were so beautiful, as were the bungie jumpers. at the end of the trail.

Amazing experience. Great to see statue of David Livingstone situated in the park. Falls are spectacular and when we visited beginning of July, there was a rainbow right across the falls which made for brilliant photos. Worth a visit if in the area.

We went to Vic Falls firstly from the Zimbabwe side of the river and enjoyed it very much- a couple of days later, having purchased a dual entry visa for Zimbabwe, we were able to walk across the bridge and view the Falls from the Zambian side also. This too was great- similar but different. Well worth the effort we... More

What's truly unique about these falls is the amazing mist that rises up, swirls and writhes within the breeze. Be forewarned -- if you walk all the way to the end, you WILL get soaked. If you can walk in them, take water shoes, not boots. The views are worth it!

No matter what angle you vie the falls from you can not help but being awed at the beauty. As you walk along the paths near the falls you will be wet from the spray but also surrounded by rainbows..

We [2 families including two young children] booked into two chalets in the Rest Camp in the national Park December 2013 on the recommendation of friends in Bulawayo. A total disaster - Kitchen stank of cooking offal, cupboard doors missing or hanging off hinges, oven door fell off when bumped, no hot water, kitchen filthy and paint on counter top... More

The park is superb, but whatever you pay to see the area, be warned that sometimes the animals just don't play the game... and hide too well! We did see lots of lovely Water Buck, antelope, Guinea Fowl and warthogs, but no cats and elephant, we did find cat prints in the sand and some areas where crocs had been... More

Victoria Falls is easily accessible from the Zimbabwe side and the views are spectacular. The entrance fee is US $30 and well worth it. We explored the Falls during the day and then again after dark during the full moon. Lunar Rainbow tours are available three days a month, the night of full moon and the night prior and after...
