Amazing!

Absolutely amazing and far above any expectations. Worth do see both sides of the falls (Zimbabwe and Zambia). Make sure you have enough time to do all the walks around the area!

Walking in the park seeing the falls from different angles is a great experience. Some places, you literally get wet by the steam of the falls. Take your time and walk along the falls. There are many view points and my advice is that you walk to all of them.

We did the guided walk as well as the helicopter flight both are an excellent visit, beware the waterproofs though they are warm so the options are wet from sweat or wet from Mosi oa Tunya. The photos will be some of the best you ever get with rainbows everywhere.

Victoria falls is an eye catching place, it is a must visit place, it is really wonderful during winter time, like during July times. The water falls are so beautiful this time of the year. It is really interesting because some people prefer to use rain coats as one gets wet when you walk around the falls. Vic falls is... More

To get through customs it took us almost 2 hours. Victoria Falls is beautiful, I hate to not give Mother Nature a five star rating, but during the dry season it was not as spectacular as I am sure it is when there is more water flowing.

A real world wonder to be visited peacefully. The huge amount of water falling from so high makes you understand why it is called as the "thundering smoke". The walk from the Zimbabue side is very pleasant and easy, and allows you to have unique views of the falls. It is also advisable to take an helicopter with the same... More

The Falls are quite spectacular to see however they have had additional drought this year during the dry season and there is but a trickle on the Zambian side. The Zimbabwean side though still has water flow. I'm rather disappointed to have come during this time and that I cannot view the full spectacle of the falls. My recommendation is... More

A visit to the falls is a must. The scale of this waterfall is amazing. There are many points where you can stop to take photos, but beware you will need a good plastic cover for your camera as the spray will saturate you and anything you are carrying.

We did a tour of Victoria Falls through Wild Horizons and we believe that the falls can be done without a guide. There are so many informational plaques at the entrance - you can learn so much from that! The falls are breathtaking - a great experience!

Indeed one of the seven wonders of the world a definite must visit if you are a lover for nature. Where the rain falls every time through the water falls. Very safe environment, hop into 2 countries i.e. Zambia and Zimbabwe within a walking distance. Watch out for the monkeys which have a silly tendency to target women😂😂😂
