I greatly enjoyed seeing both sides of the falls. I felt closer to the falls on the Zambia side. No need for a guide. If you want the best view, take a MICROLIGHT FLIGHT from ZAMBIA!!! Only available through Batoka Sky. Totally supercedes the helicopter flight. I found out about it after my itinerary was full and managed to squeeze... More

What a breathtaking experience. I think it costs around $30 for the entry fee, which I didn't think was unreasonable for such a beautiful park. We went by ourselves, sans tour guide, which I think is the way to go. The guides we saw were pretty much just walking along their groups so I don't think that is necassary. You... More

We walked the Falls on the Zimbabwe side. It was well worth $30 per person and ending up totally soaked to view this wonder. We had our own ponchos with us, but decided to really experience the Falls and the mist. We saw people with guides, but do not regret our decision to go it alone. If you're in the... More

Falls are a treat from Mother Nature just be sure to have your wallet prepped. Take wet gear with you as last half of the walk at this time of the year is very damp.

Amazing views from the Zimbabwean side. Stunning nature! But park fees very expensive. And activities way over priced. Poor craftsmanship.

Visitors may be surprised to see how close they can get to the edge! And you will get soaked when you do. But, what a view!!

Was in the park on the Zimbabwe side. There about 13 viewing stations along a footpath. Magnificent views. Need a raincoat (neck to ankle) by the end of the walk or you will be soaking wet from the spray.

Lots of fun. Bring a poncho, or if you don't want to get your pants wet, wear the black rain coats the give you A nice two mile ealk. Very wet from the must at times. Don't miss the 1400 year old Balboa tree at the start of the tour. Spend more time taking photos at the beginning of the... More

The rushing waters during high season are a powerful reminder of the force of nature and are a sight to behold. In high season, expect visibility in portions to be poor due to the amount of water and expect to get drenched. But there's no questioning why Victoria Falls is one of wonders of the natural world.
