“Magical falls and rain forest”
Reviewed 16 May 2014

Make sure you get the rain coat, i left the place wet. Its lovely, not even photos can explain these falls. There is bungee jumping in the bridge, all the gutsy ones can go ahead. Restaurant inside the vic falls is quite expensive. If you decide to stay in Zambia make sure you cross over to the Zimbabwe side so as to see them properly.

“Bigger than big!”
Reviewed 16 May 2014

When we arrived at the Falls in mid April, it had been raining upstream for some time and the locals were saying that the Falls had not been this big for a long while. The sky was blue but we still were drenched on the walk.

David Livingstone was very lucky that there was not this much water flowing when he canoed to the island on the edge of the waterfall back in 1855!

“Magnificent, especially from the air”
Reviewed 16 May 2014

A definite "must do" if you're anywhere near, the falls are amazing. You can walk most of the length for views; however, a helicopter ride really shows you the vastness of the falls. I went at the high season ... probably the "worst" to really see the falls ... the water is at its highest and the mist makes it very hard to see the actual falls. If you go from about September-March, you'll be able to see the falls better. Regardless, it's a breathtaking spectacular

“Magnificent!!!!!”
Reviewed 15 May 2014

There's nothing u can't like about it, it's breath taking if there is God he truly exist there. Too much hustling from people selling stuff outside the gate but they are just trying to make a living.

“Natural World Wonder”
Reviewed 15 May 2014

Make sure you visit at the right time of the year: anytime just before the rainy season ie; Aug/Sept/Oct there is very little water falling:) Not to say there isnt a nice walk around the area: I only did it from the Zambian side; the hassle and extra cost of just crossing into Zim wasnt worth it.
BUT what is nice is to park up at the Royal Livingstone Hotel "very posh" but very welcoming to day trip travellers; sit on the veranda decking right next to the beautiful Z River and even take a walk along the path to the Falls; save paying parking: Might have to "blag" a story at the gate leaving the hotel but seriously a nice alternative; Make sure you climb down to the Boiling Point; bit tricky but worth it:
