These are the widest water falls in the world, and they deserve all the favourable reports you can read about it. It makes you feel how small you are in the middle of the Nature that surrounds you.

If it's not on your bucket list, add it! Victoria Falls is incredible. The sheer size is mind blowing. It's a lot of money but I highly recommend to do a helicopter flight to get a better understanding of just how big this is. I did this first and then spent the rest of the day walking around all the... More

We went at the start of November when it is dry season and as Zambia has a power station that uses some of the water there is very little flow from this side but still impressive to look from one end to the other of the one-mile gorge. We were lucky to be staying in a nearby hotel that gave... More

There was a larger crowd when I visited at the end of the dry season, but that may be because it was Zambia's 50th independence day. Don't let the photos online fool you - this place isn't as secluded as it looks. A short drive from Livingstone, and a pretty popular tourist destination. The baboons in the carpark will attempt...

Even though the water levels are lower at this time of year, you must not miss such a natural wonder. The views are breathtaking and the photo ops are abundant. We heard the best way to see the falls is a helicopter ride but walking the paths makes it much more personal.

I went on a Helicopter flight over the Falls which was good.. you could see the large water catchment feeding the falls. You cant expect to see rushing water when you go there in the dry season .Good sight from the air.

This is an amazing place. They rent rain ponchos. We wore 2 layers and still got wet. Bring sufficient water protection for your camera and lenses. they are going to get wet. The canyons are deep. We saw 5 rainbows at one time. Also take the time to walk us the river before it flows over. It is a huge... More
