The Victoria Falls are really a truly impressive and awesome sight. We have seen the Falls from both the Zambian and the Zimbabwian sides. You get closer to the Falls in Zambia, but they are more impressive in Zimbabwe. On the Zambian side you can walk by the falls and get really good and close views. You will need a... More

I never seize to be amazed by the site of the Victoria falls. The natural beauty of the vegetation just makes it look magnificent and majestic! Had fun being soaked in the spraying waters from the falls. The feeling of seeing the falls just calms ones spirit. Am yet to see it from the Zimbabwe side. But this natural wonder... More

Upon a recent visit back to Zimbabwe for the first time in 15 years I can honestly say that Victoria Falls are a must do for anyone who loves to see nature at its best. From Devils Gorge to wandering along the cliff side path practically on the edge looking towards the falls this is something you should experience. I... More

One of the fantastic views of the world. Don't miss it! I saw it in 1969. Even ward could not have changed it much.

I went to the Victoria Falls last October, only on the Zambia Side. It was dry season and there wasn't that much water. Nonetheless, it was still very impressive!!!! It is a world wonder and there is a lot to see around as well, but if you can go during high-water season, I am sure that it is 1000X better!!... More

Stunning views of a relatively untouched landscape. The falls offers plenty of well kept hiking paths and a refreshing mist to cool you off on the days that near 40°C . Watch out for the baboons, as adorable as they are, they will snatch your picnic from you. In December/Jan you can hike to Devils pool which offers thrill seekers... More

Spectacular views of the Falls. But was a bit disappointed when I found out that December is the rainy season and the falls didn't have much water running off of them. April seems to be the best time to visit.

The Zambia side is where most of the attractions are with an easy walk to see the falls. There are helicopter flights, white water rafting ( one of the best in the world), quads and many more attractions. The falls are easily accessible from the gardens of the Zambezi Sun Hotel giving a saving of $20 US per person, visit... More
