Victoria Falls is a place every human should get a chance to visit. Visit the falls during the dry season when the water volume is low so as to be able to go to the devil's pool!! The mist is also minimal and so the falls will be more visible.
I went during the wet season in June but I equally enjoyed...I got drenched and dried and drenched again. Its a beautiful place

Victoria Falls (Mosi-O-Tunya) is an adrenalin junkie's delight in a tropical setting. We stayed on the Zambian side of Vic Falls at David Livingstone Lodge up the Zambesi from the Falls. Vic Falls is 108m high Falls (higher than South America’s Iguazu Falls) and stretches for 1.7km. The entrance to the Vic Falls Zambian national park is directly at the rear of the Zambezi Sun Hotel (which is on the Eastern cataract of the Falls). We took a tour boat from the Royal Livingstone Hotel to Livingstone Island, from where we swam across the Zambezi currents to the Devil's Pool right on the edge of the Falls. Plunging into the rushing waters of Devil’s Pool was an incredible buzz! Viewing it beforehand on You Tube, it looks like a suicidally crazy thing to do to leap from the cliff into this (surprisingly deep) little rock pool, but it is perfectly safe to do (but it IS NOT permitted during March to May, the peak flow period for VF when you would get swept over the edge!). We then swam back to Livingstone Island, for a breakfast included in the tour. The best viewing point of Vic Falls is on the Zimbabwe side, so we got a single-entry day visa to walk across the Victoria Falls Bridge marking the border between the two countries. When walking across the bridge you pass through both immigration points to get your passport stamped. Exiting the bridge on the Zimbabwe side you’ll notice the slightly menacing-looking guard with the semi-automatic rifle at the ready. As you pass both ends of the bridge be prepared to be pestered by local Africans wanting you to buy their souvenoirs , the impoverished Zimbabweans & Zambians in fact possessed very little to trade with, the Zambians had only their simple copper bracelets & the Zimbabweans’ only ‘souvenoir’ was the ludicrously mega-inflated, old Zimbabwe dollar – for a small amount of South African Rands we bought a $1Trillion note & a $100 Billion note (when I enquired as to the value of a one Trillion Zimbabwe dollar, I was told I could maybe buy a loaf of bread with it!). We did some sightseeing in the Vic Falls village in Zim, lots of gift and memento shops. The tourist police were very obliging & helpful but obviously they didn’t have a lot else to do. We twigged after a while that one particularly helpful officer appeared to be steering us towards his niece’s gift shop in the town. An unforgettable experience!

what a difference seeing the falls in the dry season. walk across the bridge see the rock formations with no water or mist.
the actual entrance area and curio shops has been nicely redone since my last visit in February.

It was my first time at Zambia and was truly impressed!
Victoria falls simply stunning. It was beyond description beautiful. It's far away from Europe but absolute worth to see. For sure I'll be back!

Unfortunately I can just imagine how beautiful the Falls are. We went at the end of September.(only a week ago) only to discover there was NO wáter. We really felt very bad since the only purpose of flying to Zambia was to see this wonder of the world.
There was some wáter on the Zimbabwe side but we did not have a visa for that country. When you plan a trip to see the falls be sure it is not in the dry season.
I think the tour operators should know better selling this. We could have had three more days in beautiful Cape Town and surroundings instead of loosing money and time going to Zambia.
