We have been to Vic Falls (Zambia side) twice now and it's just an amazing wonder. If you are travelling anywhere in southern Africa try to make a short side trip to the falls, even just 1-2 nights so you can take a walk and a helicopter ride. Photos look amazing but you need to see and experience this first hand, it's a magical place.

It really is worth the effort and expense to see these falls. The experience, however, will vary depending on the time of year and thus the water level. Our visit was in February and the view from the Zambia side was excellent. On the Zimbabwe side, the views were rather obscured by the spray, so at this time of the year, if your budget is tight, you can perhaps skip going over to the Zimbabwe side. Its quite expensive--$30 for a day visa and $30 for park entry.

Fantastic liked it all. If you like to excercise a walk along the falls is something not to be missed.Missed the Rainbow Falls due to rain & mist.

With great regret I have to give this place a negative review. This was our stop on a 4 week long journey around Southern Africa. We decided to stay in backpackers for 3 days before moving on. Unfortunately, we cut this short by one day, if we could we would have cut it short by two. The town if Victoria falls, is extremely dirty, feels unsafe and you are constantly bothered by street vendors, to the point that you have to "rent" a police officer to walk with you around town just so you can be left alone. The only place we dared to eat, was in Hotel Victoria, and the Casino (which was literally EMPTY). We actually did not even want to buy groceries from the local store as it simply did not look even marginally sanitary. Now, we are considered easy going travels, willing to experience anything, try everything, eat local dishes, but there is a limit to some things, and sadly this is where we reached it. It would be like trying dishes from a street vendor in India...just not recommended.
Falls on the other hand, were magnificent .We were there during low season, hence the falls were not blocked by mist and we can see the beauty of them. Hence we suggest visiting in low season, as in high season you would not be able to see the other side due to mist. I am not sure why people go to Mozambique side as you can't see falls from there...you can be on the river, but falls you actually do not get to see, unless you lean over the edge (Devil's pool). This is a good 2-4 attraction. Next to this, we did Amazing Boma dinner, which is a must, and that was our experience. Honestly, after being bothered, every minute, of every meter on the street, we did not feel like going around town to the market or similar. While there are activities there to do, we did not do many as we reside in S. Africa and have already done most.
Overall, Falls worth going for, but do not expect much of the town. 2 days is more than enough.

We visited the falls in February after the rains, so the volume of water over the falls was at its peak. This made for a spectacular viewing, but lent to tremendous overspray, so rent the rain coat for three dollars. it is worth renting a rain coat verses taking your own.
