The smoke really does thunder!

As a reasonably seasoned traveller, I can still say this has got to be one of the definite must sees of the world. I'm a little biased, coming from Zimbabwe originally, but... read more

As a reasonably seasoned traveller, I can still say this has got to be one of the definite must sees of the world. I'm a little biased, coming from Zimbabwe originally, but honestly, the place is incredible. I had to pay the international price of $30USD which is a little steep, but I definitely got value out of my money!... More

Just go there and go slow so you can enjoy the beautiful waterfall. We where there in February and the water was only "halfway" but it was magnificent anyway (and the good thing with low water is that the fog is not in the way for the fall)

The Victoria Falls are absolutely breathtaking. I was blown away seeing them as apposed to a picture. The noise from our Kingdom Hotel was truly spectacular at( 5.00am.) Both the helicopter ride over the falls and walking alongside them was an amazing experience. I highly recommend them if you are in the area!!

Unbeleiveable view of hugh falls. Amazing view, amazing sound of the falling water and amazing feeling of the water drops. The power of the water in its embodiment

During the evening of January 26 (and into the night) it rained a lot, as we noticed sitting on our hotel terrace having dinner. As it had apparently been quite dry in the period before, we were lucky to visit the falls the next day, after the Zambezi had been filling-up and could perform its show of an almost full... More

Victoria Falls should be on everyone's bucket list as a must see. We saw it at the low water volume season so we were able to take great pictures. (Only one place where it was raining.) Alert though! Entry is $30 each time so you cannot view the falls and then return the same day - each entry costs -... More

The Victoria falls offers a 4-5 kilometer stretch of different views of the falls through the park. The rainbow forming across the falls are spectacular. Can take a helicopter ride as well. Be ready to get wet because of the splashes of from the falls. The vegetation along the gorge are also unique and is an additional attraction.

There's no point, really, in coming to Vic Falls and not visiting the Falls themselves, but note that for non-ZImbabweans it's $30 each to get in. For a family, that makes this an expensive excursion - but then Zimbabwe as a whole is not a cheap place to visit. The views are incredible and the walk through the park is... More

Prior to the trip, I was told by someone that the Zambian side was about the same as the Zimbabwean side of the Falls, what a lie! The views from this side of the falls was just spectacular. The park had excellent walks, great spots for photos or if you just wanted to sit down and enjoy the experience. Only... More
