The National Park is clean and well maintained. A must see in your lifetime! The falls are a amazing sight.

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

I've been to both sides of Vic Falls and definitely liked the Zimbabwean side better. The only thing worth mentioning in Zambia is the bridge where you get absolutely soaked and the short hike down the valley, but beware of the baboons. The park was not well organized in view points and there was trash lying around and hanging in... More

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
