I would recommend the Zimbabwe side over the Zambia one as you get to see way more of the falls. I went in August though so I can only speak for that time. It costs $55 for Irish and English citizens to get a visa for Zimbabwe and another $30 to get into the national park. You can pay by... More

This was on our "Bucket List", so we were prepared for extraordinary. I didn't realize how hard it would be to view the falls in the wet season. We had some great views at the beginning of our walk, but as you got into the heart of the area, you really couldn't see much for all the falls-generated rain. I... More

You can see Victoria Falls from the Zambia side as well as the Zimbabwe side, but the superior view is from the Zimbabwe side, regardless of the time of year. There is an easy walkable trail with 15-18 viewing points that allows you to see the entire falls. From the Zambia side, one can see only a fraction of the... More

The best way to see the Falls is from the national park. There is a designated path to follow and you get to see the Falls from many angles complete with the rainbow! We saw several visitors with full length waterproof coats and thought that rather excessive until we got to the end of the route when we got soaked... More

Lovely and breathtaking scenery. The thundering rains in the rainforest has a healing effect. Inspiring, invigorating and simply awesome views!

The attraction is based on a path with approx 15 viewpoints to the falls, in different perspectives and positions. The overall is really superlative, with impressive images surrounded by the noise of the water and waterspray flooding you. Take your raincoat!

we visited the Mosi-o-Tunya falls and i was a breath taking but wet experience. It's a nice walk and whose experience are to be experienced since that words cannot distill the awe one feels when you feast your eyes on the falls. I wasn't dressed appropriately and so I spent some cash getting footware and a jacket - they didn't... More

I visited Victoria falls alongside my safari group in July 2016. It is certainly spectacular from every angle. The day before, I'd done a helicopter ride over the falls, so this was a great opportunity to see the falls up close. And it's fair to say that you will get wet! Long Raincoats can be obtained at the falls entrance,... More

Take the "Angles" helicopter flight for a more exciting view of the landscape and falls. Also take the walks on offer, and marvel at the tropical rain-forest created by the spray from the falls.
