This of course was the reason for our visit. Seeing the majestic falls left me in awe. I also enjoyed getting soaked by the spray from the main falls (temporary relief from the blazing sun rays). Great national park, good service and informative staff. Take your time with this activity and enjoy walking around the park

We visited at the very beginning of the rainy season in Angola so the water flow was still pretty low here but still very impressive. We were told that during the wet season, the water flow is so great that viewing is obstructed by steam and tourists get very wet from the spray. I have seen Niagara and Iguacu and... More

It costs US$30 per person to get in and will take you approx 3 hours to walk the full length. Even at low water it is a magnificent sight, with the bonus that you can see everything without the spray.

I guess it was December so the water was low but in my humble opinion Vic Falls are not as good as Iguazu or Niagara. Probably because they are just not so easy to see unless you get a helicopter. But you have to see them and it's certainly nice to get up close to them

Of course Victoria Falls is magnificent. On this recent visit, it was during the long drought, and so the flow was quite low, but the advantage to that was that visibility was very good. I recommend visiting the falls as soon as it opens at dawn, as the light is stunning and rainbows abound.

Water was not too much but have a good experience in falls area. Amazing. Compared to Igaua-Falls, it is a small size fall in Africa.

Entrance fee was $30/person in US dollars. Zimbabwe uses the US dollar for everything. There are some places that use the Rand but for the most part the US dollar is the currency. The park was wonderful. You can go in with a guide or go by yourself with a map. The Falls were spectacular even though it was the... More

This was the most amazing, breathtaking experiences of my life you can only marvel at what you see. I really do not know how to put in words what I felt when i was there. Everyone needs to visit this at least once in their lives.

The crew flew over the national park and had the fun of it, thanks to Chikopokopo Helicopters, we saw less game as opposed to a usual game drive where one drives through the park, we saw elephants and I guess it's the large population of this animal, giraffes, Impala is all over and a warthog, I guess days are different,...
