A great walk around the falls. It was apparently a drought but still plenty of water over the falls. Good photo opportunity. With more water then there would be more mist so not so good for photos. There is a cost to get in at about $US30 I think but worth it.

We went to Victoria Falls in dry season so we could swim the Devils pools (highly recommend) but since it was dry season the falls aren't in full force and you can't see much of them from the Zambia side. If you're willing to pay the extra visa costs it's probably worth it to head to Zimbabwe for a better... More

Before leaving for our Botswana safari, I got a lot of concerned friends suggesting that I cancel my one day in Zimbabwe. Luckily, their fears were unfounded. Perhaps there's turmoil and it's wise to avoid Harare, but we had no problems at the border and had a very nice time in Victoria Falls. The Victoria Falls park itself is GORGEOUS... More

Two days in Vic Falls were an add on to a trip to South Africa, and if you can do it, go for it. It's only an hour and a half flight from Johannesburg, and the falls are so spectacular, it's worth the time.

Don't listen to your travel books pushing for the Zambia side. The view from the Zimbabwe side is 10x as vast. You can hike a long stretch along the falls, so if there is any question of whether to cross from Zambia, don't hesitate! It's a shame to miss the view from Zimbabwe.

We really struggled to find a site that showed pictures of the water level at the Victoria Falls when we planned to visit in August and were still unsure of what to expect when we took off from Heathrow. For those having the same problem we visited on 24th and 25th August via `land, sea (river really!) and air'. The... More

When we were here we stayed in Livingstone but the water level on the Zambian side was low due to time of year, so off to Zimbabwe we went. The visitor centre/cafe/shop were superb and the walkways along the falls were beautifully maintained and gave excellent views. Whatever time of year you visit you must see the Zimbabwean side.

We went during the dry season, which is the best time, as you can actually see the falls. The paths are all well marked with lots of nooks for great picture taking. Not rushed at all and a great way to spend a hot afternoon.

We went in September, and it was great. The water levels were perfect for viewing as not only do you see the waterfalls you also get to see some of the rock formation along with beautiful rainbows , there was still enough spray to get you a little wet , it only takes around 2-3 hrs. to take a slow...

Park fee was $30.00 American per person. A gift shop and restaurant are located near the entrance. Would recommend you walk all the way up the statue and then meander down along the falls, visiting various view points along the way down.
