We have visited the falls in both seasons...both have their awe and majesty. It truly is one of those places on earth that everyone should try to see at least once in their life. The helicopter trip gave us some awesome photographic opportunities, a micro light somewhat more scary! So worth the effort especially now as BA are not flying... More

Victoria Falls takes your breath away. We stayed on the Zambia side for three days and visited the falls five time to see it from different views. The most spectacular of which was from on livingstone island in the middle of the falls where you can stand literally a metre from the edge - the most amazing, exhilarating and liberating... More

When you look at the wonder that is the water falls at Victoria, you realize that indeed we serve an awesome God - yes, the world was created by an orderly, deliberate, all powerful God, it is not an accident.

The summer is the best time to see the falls without them being engulfed in mist and fog. If you're daring enough .... bungee jump off the bridge! It's breathtaking.

It really is indescribable but all I would recommend is walk all of the paths and don't be afraid of getting wet! One of the most amazing things I've ever seen and experienced.

You can't find the words to describe the experience. You need to see/feel it to experience them - the falls really do 'roar' from miles away. Absolutely stunning.

One look at these falls and you'll fall in love with its splendid beauty. Its vast, unending expanse gives the larger than life appearance leaving you wondering about the beauty of nature.We visited in July, so it was very misty and we decided not to get raincoats and wet ourselves...and how we enjoyed it! Only thing that you should protect... More

Went to the Zambia side in January. Good points: Victoria Falls is breathtaking and one of the most beautiful waterfalls in the world. The rainbows that appear around the Falls are of perfect form and come in doubles and triples at one time. There is a spectacular view from every angle and even though I hate heights I was able...
