“The Mist certainly Thundered!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2013

Early April, with the Zambezi in full spate, this is a not-to-be-missed attraction whether you are visiting Zambia. Zimbabwe, Namibia or Botswana as all four of these countries come together in this area. The thunderous roar of the water as it shoots over the falls shakes you to the core of your being. One can easily understand why Stanley Livingstone stopped here for so long. The cauldron that is the 'boiling point' at the base of the falls leaves one nervous of slipping in. This place is unspoilt, beautiful and awe-inspiring.

“Perfect balance of natural and commercial”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2013

Unlike some other locations that can be spoiled by over commercialisation this National Park manages to strike just the right balance. A small cafe and visitor centre near the entrance is all there is, leaving you free to wander along the well constructed and maintained footpaths along the top of the falls. Saw my first 'free' snakes there, alongside some small mammals and loads of birds. The path meanders along the top of the falls and allows you to get pretty close to the edge. Be aware though that in certain areas you WILL get wet, the spray from the falls is similar to being in very heavy rainfall. Its a waterfall, what do you expect?

“Breathtaking”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2013

A must see natural wonder, my third visit and it still takes my breath away. The amount of water crashing over in April is truly amazing, 300 feet high and over a mile wide you'd wonder where it all comes from and how it all fits into the gorge below the falls. If you're interested in water and falls then this is the place to be
