Despite steadily falling rain, we drove around this small park in the early morning, and were rewarded with encounters with giraffe, impala, Egyptian and spur wing geese, ground hornbills, a marabou stork - and - best of all - a lone elephant bull, at a time of the year when most wild elephants are over in Zimbabwe!

Really good activities, if you're into a little adventure. But be aware, this is a poor country. People do hustle you a lot, trying to sell you stuff, just to get paid. This gets quite annoying after a while.

As I have mentioned in my review of the falls, the Zimbabwe side is the better side to view the falls. That been said, the amount of wildlife in the area is astounding!, From elephant, zebra, buck, warthog, crocs. hippos etc, the place is teaming with wildlife. Just make sure you keep windows closed when the monkeys are around as... More

The park was well organized with pathways that had viewing areas along the way. The falls were impressive, however, because the rains had not started the falls could not show off their full glory. Well worth a visit.

This was amazing to see. We went during the dry season, but the structure behind the falls is unreal. The trails are great and show you some really interesting vantages of the falls and the surrounding area. Just be careful of the handrails. We had one fall while taking a picture and luckily we were not leaning on it much.... More

I have wanted to go to The Falls all my life .. and visited Livingstone during October 2013 .. unfortunately the water was low due to the fact that they have not had any rain yet .. so although it was only "a trickle" of falls, it was still worth going. A lovely long walk across the river to Livingstone... More

We traveled with friends that were on their way to emigrate to Australia, so we were very lucky to see the falls in full flow. You will get wet in these conditions, so a word of advice: take your own raincoat, as the ones they rent out have been worn by everyone that visits and does not smell good at... More

in September, 2013, the water was very low, and half of the falls (or more) was not flowing. When there is plenty of water, they say the width of the falls is over 1.7 kilometers (over 1 mile), which I believe. It is an extraordinary falls. We took a 15 minute helicopter ride, which was worth it at about US$165... More

This is the reason one comes to Livingstone - walk out along the point as far as you can go so you can see the Boiling Pot

We decided to stay on the Zambian side of the Falls and visited the National Park. Although you only get to see about one-third of the Falls they are still breathtakingly magnificent. A must-do is to go down to the Boiling Pot but it is a steep climb back up. We also had fun haggling at the Craft Market. TIP:... More
