    One of the great natural wonders of the world!
    We walked across the Victoria Falls Bridge from Zimbabwe after seeing this amazing natural wonder from that side and it was wonderful to see it from this side and definitely worth doing, just not as impressive as from the Zimbabwean side. It was an easy walk and no queues to either depart Zimbabwe (make sure you purchase the multi visa on your way in @ the airport to cover you going into Zambia and returning to re-enter Zimbabwe 😊 Us Aussies no longer have to pay to enter Zambia just get the Visa stamp in our passports….bonus! Make sure you have your raincoats and camera waterproof protection at the ready for “the smoke”!

    You need to experience the Victoria Falls from the Zambian side. Take a rain poncho, and good non slip shoes. The walk is not too strenuous and is something to behold. I went early in the morning around 6h45am in July 2023. I was alone. It was completely safe and there were other early birds also enjoying the sight and sounds of the falls. The various viewing points were well marked, do not miss out the rainbows.

    AMAZING water falls
    One of the seven wonder of the world!! Swam in the river above the falls, did the devils pool adventure, and the park walk on the Victoria Falls park! Helicopter ride around Victoria Falls. So, in October, the falls is in the low flow due to being their winter. Don't let this deter your visit. The falls are STILL beautiful! During their rainy period, the mist is so heavy, you can't see alot of the falls! Still a beautiful adventure in October!!

    Not enough praise for Zambian side of Victoria falls
    Well worth crossing the border, it's abt 1.4 km .. easy crossing we walked there . We walked over the bridge. An opportunity for beautiful pictures. Zambian border control so helpful and friendly . It's a two minute walk from the immigration point. It was a beautiful experience. The boiling point is a bit of a walk abt 30 mins for the unfit like me .. but rather well worth it . There is not enough praise for the falls on the Zambian side but it is spectacular. The knife point bridge at the park is such a thrill and not to be missed.

    Terrific views of the falls!
    Marvelous scenery, this despite that the falls are in its lowest flow right now. Increadible views, both from ZIM and ZAM sides. Unfortunately the park entrance fee on ZIM side now a hefty 50 USD/person (Simply greedy if you ask me), ZAM side 20 USD/person which ok.

    Mosi~oa Tunya / Victoria Falls ticked off the bucket list
    One word “incredible” The most amazing sight you’ll ever see, the rising mist can be seen as you are landing in Livingstone and from the skies it is phenomenal. Don’t forget your poncho’s as you’ll definitely get very wet on your walk. We experienced a stunning rainbow on the day we visited. 100% recommend this once in a lifetime experience.

A real wonder of our Mother Nature. Wild, dynamic, wet, energetic, rainbow-decorated.

This was a memorable experience!

So we viewed the VF from Zambia today having viewed them from Zimbabwe yesterday. Both experiences are amazing.
We got a taxi to the Zimbabwe border, went through a relatively simple process to leave Zimbabwe, and then walked across the border. We then went through immigration o access Zambia with no difficulty. It involved completing a form, answering a few questions as to how long we were staying etc. and then walking through. The day visa cost nothing.
The VF NP is just a few metres beyond and is easy to find. It cost U$20 each. A significant discount on the Zimbabwe cost of U$50, We tried to follow the All Trails walking app directions. Normally they are spot on but in this case they were old. We ignored them. The directions in the park aren’t great but the new path is obvious and we muddled round. Now, the views re fantastic but very different from the views in Zimbabwe. In Zambia they are very in your face to start with and a total contrast to Zimbabwe. We loved them and have some great memories.
After walking the trails we went to the Royal Livingstone hotel. This is outside the NP but still with animals in its grounds! Zebra and giraffe and Impala. We had a coffee which turned into lunch and was very reasonable. The bar had great views over the river and we saw loads of hippos. We got a cab back to the border and the driver ushered us into and through the Zambian border. Nice and easy. He they dropped us at the Zimbabwe border and our hearts sank. There was a bit of a queue. But within two minutes three different people has told us that there were two queues. One involving visas, and one that appeared to be for daily trippers who were local. We checked it out no the security guard said we couldn’t go to a different area. But one woman came after the 4 of us and said that there was a separate area. She showed us where and placed us in the queue. We were through in minutes.
You should go to both sides for a good view of the VF, but Zimbabwe are in danger of pricing themselves out.
