Try to visit when there are fewer crowds (perhaps late in the day). Make a plan in case you are separated from your group. It is surprisingly easy to lose your companions when you are running around in the rain trying to take photos! Wear...More

We were dropped off by our Lodge shuttle bus to the entrance to Victoria Falls (no more than a 10 min drive from any of the lodges), paid our US$30 entrance fee (per person) to the National Park (credit card accepted) and easily wandered around...More

The waterfall is an obvious must-do activity. The reception is unfortunately run by thieves. Last year they attempted to steal $100 from our group and this year the same people are still employed by the park. It is sad to see that the country does...More

My second time touring the Falls was just as good as the first. It is an amazing site that needs to be seen in person to grasp the enormity of it. I'm glad I had a raincoat though! We would have gotten drenched without it!

You cannot see the whole panorama of the falls except by helicopter, which are an annoying presence here. But the falls are fantastic, and the walking path offers so many vistas of these amazing falls.

We stayed at The Royal Livingstone and could walk to the Falls. Our entrance fee was paid for as well. We hiked down to Boiling Pot which is not handicap friendly at all. It starts off fairly easy but then you must go down lots...More

Lots of good information boards at the entrance, then an interesting walk along the paths opposite the falls. Spectacular from every viewpoint!! Some slippery steps up and down in one area but you can see most from the top path. Take wet weather gear or...More

Hi! Yes, you can do both in one day. I recommend you see the Falls in the afternoon from the Zimbabwean side. The sun comes up from the Zambezian side, so if you go in the morning you'll see the sun smiling right at you and... More

Depending on which hotel you are in but we found it very easy to walk down and just follow the walk way around. You can spend as long as you feel you need - I think we spend about 2.5 hours then walked along the bridge... More
