“The falls are INCREDIBLE!”
Reviewed November 16, 2012

Victoria Falls is like no other. You have to see it to believe it! I went in October, when the water level is low, but the falls itself was still astounding and powerful.

“Truly a Wonder of the World”
Reviewed November 16, 2012

One of those places you just have to visit. The Falls are more spectacular during / immediately after the rainy season (November - March), but you get wet! You can see more of the falls in the dry season, but getting below the Devils Cataract in December and feeling the force of that water around you is amazing.
(NB - I think it's much better from the Zimbabwe side)

“Spectacular”
Reviewed November 14, 2012

Staying at the Zambezi Sun Hotel, the falls were a short 5min walk. Good trail and vistas, this is dry season, but never less, spectacular. The Zambia side of the falls is limited, unless you go to Devil's Pool. Would definitely recommend going to the Zimbabwe side of the falls to get best views of the falls. Some complain of the low water flow, but those same people would complain of getting wet, when the flow is at it's peak. Niagara Falls is equally impressive, but perhaps not as interesting, as Vic Falls is 1.7km wide.
