It's hard to find the words to describe the Vic Falls, I've been twice - once when the water has been flowing so intense the spray coming of just shoots up for 20-30meters high with enormous rainbows to follow. The second was running slow with no spray off, you could see the bottom the walls, an incredible vision. I would... More

The Zambian side is not as nice as the Zimbabwean but it is worth a visit if you have the time. The street vendors do ruin the experience as they were slightly aggressive during our visit.

This is a remarkable place to visit and, if you are able, catch the falls from both the Zambian and Zimbabwe sides. Warning: Zimbabwean customs folks do tend to expect a little bribe on return from Zambia. Also try the boat trip up the river above the falls. Oh, and remember, many years ago tourists were shot by Zambian border... More

Went in april '14 to the Zambian side of the VicFalls. The water was very high which made it a great experience. There was so much water going down from the falls, it resulted in water being pushed up and raining down on the walkways. Some points you could hardly see anything as it was raining so hard. Some places... More

Victoria Falls has it all. Beauty, history, adventure opportunities, African animals, culture, . . . It is one of the few places on earth that I would visit again. I want to go back during the rainy season to see the falls at high flow. The view from the grounds of the Zambezi Sun is beautiful. Visit the "Devil's Pool"... More

The pictures don't give you much of a sense of the enormous volume of water going over the Falls When you get to the overlook, the volume will clue you.

We saw the Victoria Falls from the Zambian side and cannot wait to go back and do it again from the Zimbabwean side - with a whole lot of adventure packed in too! A great place to visit with teenagers (which is usually a challenge) as it is fun, varied, fast-paced and action packed! White-water rafting, bungee jumping, tiger fishing,... More

We visited Victoria Falls on both sides, Zambia and Zimbabwe. I have to say I was more impressed by the Zimbabwe side, but that doesn't mean the Zambia side is not impressive. We also hiked down to the Boiling Pot and it was a nice view of the bridge at the bottom. The hike took about 30 min for us... More

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

Do spend a helicopter ride when visiting this natural wonder. You will not regret it - the views are stunning.
