For any adventure seeker, the Victoria Falls is a must, especially in the cold season (between May - July)when the tide is in full. Lovely experience

It's magnificent and simply amazing. A bit less water at the time but it was lovely as we could still feel the spray and enjoy it's grandeur.

Wow! Don't miss the Falls. They are amazing even in the dry season. Be sure to see them from both the Zim and Zambian sides.

You really need to view the falls from both the Zambian and Zimbabwe sides. Make sure you take the time to meander along the river walk on the Zambian side as the views are stunning. Be prepared to get wet - really wet. The walks are well numbered and signposted so you can happily wander without the assistance of a... More

Touring the area at the bottom of the Falls as well as the walk on the knife-edge bridge. There are signs indicating local and scientific names of plants and trees around. We were told that the best time to see the Falls in in April - June after the rains onslaught.

There is a craft market and cafe at the entrance to the park, avoid the cafe, it is not good. There is also a... More

One of the best places I have ever visited. I got a chance to see the falls from both the Zimbabwe and Zambia side and I must say I recommend the Zimbabwe side. The views from there are spectacular. But the activities I got to partake in on the Zambia side are out of this world so my tip would... More

Victoria Falls, also known as "the smoke that thunders" i, is possibly the largest waterfall in the world. It is astonishingly beautiful and deservedly a UNESCO World Heritage site. David Livingstone, the first European to see the falls, named it in honour of Queen Victoria in 1855. His statue still looks out over the falls on the Zimbabwean-side of the... More
