“Thunderous”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2013

The Falls is thunderous, and you just are so stunned by its sheer power and magnificence as the mighty Zambezi river empties itself ! Makes you somehow think of Noah from the Bible and the rains that fell as you see a beautiful rainbow in all its splendor whilst you get soaking wet from the resulting inverted rainshowers from the Falls !!

Its about a 1.7Km walk one way, with several viewing areas ending with a view of the bridge across Zimbabwe into Zambia; We were lucky enough to see someone bunjee off the bridge which happens to be the highest commercial bridge jump in the world !

I found it a little expensive at U$30.00 for an international visitor.

“stunning”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2013

Well obviously you will visit this if you are in the area. The falls are quite beyond description, you have to be there. Don't bother with the rain cape, getting drenched is half the fun. Take an umbrella if you want to film video or take photos, also you might want to protect your camera with a shower cap and rubber band (this way you can even take pictures in the spray.

“Breathtaking”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2013

A trip to Victoria Falls is amazing, we had a guide but you probably could do it on your own, just dont forget to hire a raincoat or poncho before walking along the track and be prepared to get wet .
