1. You need to go and see this at least once in your life. 2. If you don't want to get wet, you need a raincoat. Put your phone and other non-waterproof belongings in a minigrip bag, and hide it in your handbag. You will get soaked on the bridge - and I don't mean slightly damp, but soaked wet... More

Mosi-oa-Tunya means The Smoke that Thunders and it is absolutely true. The power of the water in Victoria Falls is enormous and creates smoke that actually thunders. Breath taking! a Must -see Life time experience

I have been here in a wet season. Personally, Zambian's side in the wet season is far better than Zimbabwean's side. The view of the falls were stunning. I suggest that you should take a helicopter tour above the falls. And, you will see how enormous the falls is. You will get a whole perspective view of the Victoria falls.... More

During the high water season I recommend the Zambia side. Upstream from the falls the Zambezi is spectacular with a number of nice lodges such as the Tongabezi River Lodge. At the falls the views are over the top though you will get very wet from the spray. Zambia itself is welcoming, not overly expensive, and appears to have more... More

Walked across to see the falls from Zimbabwe to Zambia. Decided to do the "Devils Pool" which ended up being one of the most exciting things I have ever done. Simply a must do!

(Note: I also reviewed this under the Mosi-os-Tunya heading, as I myself was confused that these are not two different parks but the same Place!) There is little that can match the staggering beauty of seeing the Victoria Falls from this beautiful park which offers amazing lookout points opposite the entire rim of the Falls. It also oversease parts of... More

Victoria Falls, one of the 7 Natural Wonders of the World, is a must see attraction. As such, we decided to go despite the fact that it was in the middle of the dry season. I've never seen anything like the topography of the falls. The earth basically broke in two pieces, yielding epic sheer cliffs a mile wide. The... More

One of the 7 natural wonders of the world and what an awesome sight it is. worth a visit for sure. we visited at the off peak season when the water levels were low. but this meant that we could appreciate the wonderful contours of the rock formation and have a better sense of what the falls looked like. we...

We visited in August and this was one of my favourite things on the entire trip. The falls are so gorgeous and stunning. The walk around the park is easy but I don't remember how long it took us. If you are anywhere near this, make the effort to visit!! I want to go back for sure.

The is an absolutely marvelous location to visit. The vastness of the Falls as well as the breathtaking scenery is not to be missed. We were fortunate to be able to walk to the Falls because it is low water season and swim in the Devil's Pool. It is not an easy walk (over a mile) over rocks and boulders... More
