We were there I de ember and found the falls beautiful. We were in Zimbabwe at elephant camp so it was an easy additional attraction to visit. The magnitude of the falls is greatly reduced st this time of year but beautiful and worth the visit. We may not have made a special isl trip just to see the falls... More

The falls are truly spectacular! Be prepared to get wet, which was nice and refreshing on the day we visited as it was quite hot. The falls are well sign posted and easy to navigate. The only criticism I have is that you feel like you have been stung with constant "Park Fees" Walk in $30US p/p, Helicopter $10US p/p,... More

Fantastic & amazing! Thoroughly enjoyed seeing the falls. We walked from the hotel and it was nice to walk independently ! It was busy but still plenty of space at the viewing places.

Although I've been to Zimbabwe a couple of times, this is my first trip here. OK, so it wasn't rainy season and the falls were not in full flow, but who could tell. Totally awesome. I had an unguided walk along the well signposted paths and took a couple of hundred pictures. A strategically placed water vendor half way along... More

We saw the falls from Zambia and a helicopter too which I think a natural wonder justifies. It was December so mid summer/rainy season, the falls were not a full force but we still got really wet from the mist/spray and the noise was amazing - the smoke really does thunder even when not a peak water levels! We think... More

We visited the Victoria Falls known locally as "The smoke that Thunders" or Mosi-oa-Tunya in December 2016. We wore full length pants and long sleeves to ward of Mosquitoes however noticed other visitors in shorts and Singlets. We didn't get bitten! The Visitor centre is small but well designed and December is Low water season so the falls weren't in... More

Having seen the Falls from the Zambian side, we walked across the border, through No Man's Land and into Zimbabwe to see the Falls from this side. They are equally powerful from the 'Zim' side but the trails are not as clearly marked and it costs $10 more to get into than the Zambian side.

Disappointingly, we visited Zambia during the dry season, and from the Zambia side, the Falls were extremely underwhelming. Pressed for time, we decided to cross over to the Zimbabwean side (which required an 'emergency' visa on my part), and walked over to the National Park to view it from the Zimbabwean side. Even though it was the dry season, the... More

A must see in everyones lifetime. How does one rate a natural wonder? Easy walking to view what David Livingstone called "The flight of Angels." and the local people "Mosi-oa-Tunya" or the Smoke that thunders. And it does that. A very historic and beautiful place that does not need noisy helicopters and adrenalin rides to be enjoyed to the full.... More
