it's a nice park and you got good chances to see zebras. otherwise it was nice to drive around. unfortunatly we didn't see many other animals, but we enjoyed it anyways. The Rhino walk i definitly worth going to and I would suggest to gibe a good amount of tip to the rangers so they can protect those impressive animals and prevent wild killing

This park is conveniently located close to Livingstone for a quick animal drive. We toured in the morning and saw a plethora of animals. The elephants were just coming back from the wet season so it was special to see a family of three.

Fantastic place to visit. But beware when you go to pay for your ticket we were asked for $80 per person. When we said we would pay by card not cash the charge was only $30 per person. I suggest you pay for everything in this country with credit card just use Dollars for tips etc

This small but fabulous park is a great place for a game drive - the general lack of predators means that the animals are more relaxed. There is a fabulous area where white rhino are protected and walking (with rangers) with them is a unique and memorable experience.

The National Park is small but very well maintained. We were pleasantly surprised by everything really. No complaint. And of course, site of the falls is truly incredible. A must see in your lifetime.

We visited Victoria Falls in May, just after the heavy rain season. What an amazing sight! Our lodge suggested that we do the tour/hiking on our own without a guide... they were right. You do not need one. The paths are well marked. Wear shoes with a good grip because it can get slippery. Do not worry about taking your own rain jacket (it probably will not work - we discovered this) but rather rent one for a few dollars there on site. Take your time and do all of the paths and visit all of the look-outs. If you can be at the top of the falls for sunset, it will be a moment to remember forever!

Nothing more to say...beyond worthy of the price of admission! The park is really the only way to see the falls up close.

Visiting Victoria Falls in July had its’ pluses and minuses. We did not get to witness the massive volumes of water flowing between the two countries but that also meant there wasn’t spray so thick that you couldn’t see or photograph anything. It is a must see if you are in Zambia or Zimbabwe. In this low season there is more flow on the Zimbabwe side. Through our hotel we were able to boat on the Zambezi River along the park and see a huge herd of elephants. Awesome experience.

We planned our trip to Zambia on a number of factors, none which was "water level of Zambezi river". Thus we arrived in one of the driest Augusts, when the Zambian side was almost dry.

Hewever even despite that we were not disappointed - the park is a very calm and nice place. Trees cover most of hte surface, so you will be in a nice, cool shade even during hottest months and the walkways and viewpoints provide a lot of entertainment for a couple of hours, showing you very nice views of the rocky face of the falls, the gorge below, the Victoria bridge and the nature all around.

The best part (for me) was however the walk down to the Boiling Pot. Don't worry too much about the warnings about the difficulty - old British ladies climbed down with us with no big trouble, so you can do it as well! It took us down into a completely different biome - a rainforest in the middle of bush. After a walk, we ended on a rocky edge of the valley, where the Zambezi river flows mightily below and starts its way down the rapids. It was an amazing place, where we spent over an hour just dipping our feet in the river and taking it all in.

Couple practical notes:
- there are monkeys everywhere - they don't seem to bother anyone, but those are wild animals so you should watch what you do and where you go
- the place has toilets and some seating areas, so the basic needs are taken care of
- while you can buy some drinks and snack there, there is not much in terms of food, so either pack a snack (and beware of monkey thieves) or count with the fact you will have to last till lunch / dinner

We stayed at Royal Livingstone which was a walking distance to the falls and all the viewing points.. If you are based in either Avani or RL, you can actually do the tour on your own as all descriptions have placards in the park however you should take a tour on the Zimbabwe side as logistics are easier. We took a tour of both the Zambian and Zimbabwean side. Rainbow fall and armchair falls was the highlight of the Zambia side..
