If you come to Africa, seeing Victoria Falls is essential. If the falls are going during rainy season, it is still beautiful, but the mist is hard to see much... it is quite spectacular though! If you are daring and a crazy person... you can bungy jump off the bridge!! Don't feed the baboons!!

The Zam side is really gorgeous and has the nice bridge to walk across, however when we visited it was really steamy and the view of the falls were way better on the Zim side.

I love-love-loved Vic Falls. It was as awe-inspiring as everyone who has been there said it would be. A very sensory experience with the loud water-crashing noise, the spray that envelopes you, the sight of the water surging over the edge and the wet-earth smell. It was full-on and humbling to get up close to the falls!

These falls were beautiful. I have seen a few around the world but these had such a majestic nature to them. My husband had always wanted to go and we did. We walked around the bridges and got a great view from Zambia. I am happy we chose to stay in Zambia. You can feel the spray and enjoy the... More

Devils pool on Livingstone Island for someone with a bad head for heights still had to be done! The falls were not at their 'fullest' but still so impressive, we'd kayaked down from Mombova and then White Water Rafted the rapids below - FANTASTIC!

This place is almost beyond description. You can see the Falls from space. Not that that is a tour option but just to give you an idea of how massive this place is. Wear a hat or bandana if you don't like your hair to get frizzy. There is misting everywhere as soon as you get near the Falls. There... More

The best way to view Victoria Falls in by helicopter. We decided on the twenty two minute trip. There were three options we chose the one which dips down between the cataracts . This took us about twenty feet above the gorge which was fantastic we even waved to the white water rafters. This is not for the faint hearted... More

Beautiful falls with several paths and vantage points for great photos. While our family visited we saw a baboon family with a nursing baby, mother and father. While there is no place to eat inside of the falls, there is an abundance of venders and some places to eat directly across from the park.

The falls are beautiful and the surrounding area has plenty of fun stuff to do. I went rafting down the Zambezi, which was quite an adventure (highly recommended). The sunsets around the falls are great for photographs. It's definitely worth the trip to Zambia to see and experience Victoria Falls.

Its one place you would want to see over and over all your life. It is perfect for place for families and friends to visit and relax. It is surely a "Scene so lovely that it must have been gazed upon by angels in their flight".
