Although I've been to Zimbabwe a couple of times, this is my first trip here. OK, so it wasn't rainy season and the falls were not in full flow, but who could tell. Totally awesome. I had an unguided walk along the well signposted paths and took a couple of hundred pictures. A strategically placed water vendor half way along... More

We saw the falls from Zambia and a helicopter too which I think a natural wonder justifies. It was December so mid summer/rainy season, the falls were not a full force but we still got really wet from the mist/spray and the noise was amazing - the smoke really does thunder even when not a peak water levels! We think... More

We visited the Victoria Falls known locally as "The smoke that Thunders" or Mosi-oa-Tunya in December 2016. We wore full length pants and long sleeves to ward of Mosquitoes however noticed other visitors in shorts and Singlets. We didn't get bitten! The Visitor centre is small but well designed and December is Low water season so the falls weren't in... More

Having seen the Falls from the Zambian side, we walked across the border, through No Man's Land and into Zimbabwe to see the Falls from this side. They are equally powerful from the 'Zim' side but the trails are not as clearly marked and it costs $10 more to get into than the Zambian side.

Disappointingly, we visited Zambia during the dry season, and from the Zambia side, the Falls were extremely underwhelming. Pressed for time, we decided to cross over to the Zimbabwean side (which required an 'emergency' visa on my part), and walked over to the National Park to view it from the Zimbabwean side. Even though it was the dry season, the... More

A must see in everyones lifetime. How does one rate a natural wonder? Easy walking to view what David Livingstone called "The flight of Angels." and the local people "Mosi-oa-Tunya" or the Smoke that thunders. And it does that. A very historic and beautiful place that does not need noisy helicopters and adrenalin rides to be enjoyed to the full.... More

One can not even begin to put into words the power generated by the falls, especially on the Zimbabwean side, the thunderous crash of the waves come down like rain in the forest and even though my phone got water damaged, I couldn't be any happier. One simply cannot forget a place as amazing as this one. I'm glad I... More

Victoria Falls is really impressive. We thoroughly enjoyed our private tour - the magnitude of the falls didn't hit us until we were there. If you visit Zimbabwe and Zambia, be sure to undertake your tour from Zimbabwe!!! The views are magical.

Victoria Falls is an amazing sight and deserving of one of the seven wonders of the natural world title. The walk in the park along the ridge is very nice, but you will get wet (bring rain gear to protect yourself and your camera). For an even better view, take the 12-13 minute helicopter ride on a clear day.
