I accessed the bridge from the Zimbabwe side. It is easily walkable from Victoria Falls and no double-entry visa is needed. Just let the immigration official know that you are only going out to the bridge. After leaving the Zimbabwe border, you'll walk through the mist of the falls and then onto the bridge. At the half-way point is the... More

You get a bit wet, but crossing the bridge makes you feel as if you've walked back in time. You cross from Zambia into Zimbabwe.

great place to see the bungee jumpers from and to do it yourself. a spectacular place to see the vicfalls from. many bridges cross the mighty Zambezi. The Second Gorge of Victoria Falls, crossing the Zimbabwe-Zambia border is the one I'm talking about. Seriously - go there!!! Keep in mind *********** you need the yellow fever vaccination certificate if you... More

It is a long way from the Zimbabwe side's immigration control and the actual bridge. Pay the extra money and take the taxi instead of walking--especially if you are pulling luggage.

What a fabulous view and great place to bungee jump! The vendors were a bit over bearing at times, but other than that it was great. You also see wild vervet monkeys and baboons walking on the street.

I went with my daughter so she could bungee jump.... believe me it was worth it, but a LONG walk for me. There is a cafe bar above the center of the area where they jump, so you can get a cold drink and something to eat. Watch out for baboons! watch your food. A nice time, but you will... More

We went through customs and they give you a ticket that you have to show on your return. It was about a 30 minute walk from the Zimbabwe side and had a few hawkers along the way but they were okay. The bridge looks better from the falls I think. You could do bungy jumps if you are brave enough!... More

Great view but you must deal with the aggressive vendors. Worth the effort. Go early in the day to avoid a long wait at the customs and immigration desk.

After touring Victoria Falls we walked to the bridge and walked across to the Zambia side. You do have to show your passport and given a receipt. You need to show that to re enter Zimbabwe. We had only both a single visa entry so had to stop at the end of the bridge but had fantastic views of the... More
