Victoria Falls was an incredible experience. We hired a guide who gave us a tour of the Falls from the Zambia side. It was nice to get the history and facts on the Falls from our tour guide. You can certainly do it on your own though. We wanted to see the Falls from the Zimbabwe side but every guide book told us not to do it. Our ranger on our safari said to ignore the guidebooks and see the entire Falls. I am so glad we took his advice. If you only see the Falls from the Zambia side, you only see 1/3 of the Falls and the Falls are much more impressive from the Zimbabwe side. It was easy to get there too. We just walked across the Zambezi bridge, went through customs, purchased a visa (process was easy and cost around $40/person I think - purchase the one that allows you to get in and out), and then a short walk to the entrance. We were there in August and the Falls were close to their lowest flow, but you still want a raincoat to fully enjoy it. We rented a raincoat right outside the park entrance (about $8/each) and it was well worth it. You end up back at the entrance so you can return your raincoat. We were able to stand out on the viewing areas because we had our raincoats on. It was an awesome experience and one I will never forget.
