We were there during the high water season and the falls were spectacular. If you are there at high season, you DO need a poncho. They have them for rent inside the park for $2. The amount of spray and mist is incredible, and soaking! Your feet / sneakers/ sandals will be soaked too. There is a trail down to... More

The Falls were in really heavy flow when we visited this time, to the point that those doing the helicopter flight were only seeing mist!! (I recommend that you take or hire a poncho, or else you may not be able to take your camera out) It was absolutely spectacular, the way the view point have been set up now... More

It's one of the seven wonders of the world and it's not difficult to see why. Absolutely breathtakingly stunning. There is absolutely no need to pay for a guide or a tour, it's a waste of money. Simply follow the clearly marked path around the falls and take in the views from the many viewing points. Take or hire a... More

Absolutely beautiful. Do both sides of the falls in ZIM and ZAM. Be in shape to go down to the Boiling Pot. You will get soaked so be prepared by taking a good poncho. A GoPro with waterproof case is ideal and wear good traction shoes to avoid slipping. Be careful as the paths have rails but you can slip... More

Absolutely amazing sight to witness. One the world's natural wonders! Just don't forget to get a Poncho as we (and our passports) made the rookie mistake and got absolutely soaked.

For an experience of a lifetime, i beg everyone to take a flight of the angels. A helicopter ride will give you 13 minutes of awe inspiring yet a lifetime of beautiful views. You can also take a sunset cruise or bungee jumping or whitewater rafting...a true thrill seeker's paradise.

A notable feature of the park is the rainforest which grows in the spray of the falls, including ferns, palms, liana vines, and a number of trees such as mahogany not seen elsewhere in the region. Visitors have the chance to view the elephant, Cape buffalo, white rhinoceros, hippopotamus, eland and a variety of other antelope herds during drives and... More

The walk along the side of the Victoria Falls gives some wonderful view, but be prepared to get VERY wet, because the spray is like heavy rain. We also went on a 12 minute helicopter ride, which was expensive ($159 per person) but worth the money, because the view from above is breathtaking.
