A place to visit all year round. Be prepared to feel small in comparison with the spectacle of nature. You can spend here 2-3 hours without doing any sport that are available like paragliding, river cruises, flights over the Falls.

A once in a lifetime experience! We did the 15 minute microlight with the only company that does it - Batoka Sky. It cost us 179USD +6USD aviation tax. Money well spent. It was a memorable experience. Mindfulness in reality!!! One of the best experiences of my life. I had a pilot called Andre who was the best. Mine was... More

Fear, excitement, adrenaline, concern - should I be doing this at almost 60... ? well, I know where I'm eventually going, so YES! Was one of the highpoints to my month in Africa. Yes! Do it! P.S. (Get right with Jesus first!)

The Falls on both sides (Zimbabwe and Zambia) was amazing I have never seen the Falls this full and I been from Zimbabwe was very impressed and loved getting soaked. If you are viewing from the Zambian side I suggest a hike to the boiling pot it a beautiful place and is a awesome hike.

Victoria Falls is as magnificent as you can imagine. No need to take an organized tour, you can get a professional guide at the gate and negotiate the price, entrance is 20USD for non residents. I recommend hiring the guide and the rainponchos (along the way) unless you have a complete set of change clothes (inc.underwear) since you will get... More

We did a 15 minute ride over the falls on a microflight. A little pricey but a must do IMHO. We saw the falls from the ground level at Zambia, from Zimbabwe and from Livingstone Island. This microflight ride gave an entirely different perspective that must not be missed. On the way back we got to see some hippos on... More

We took the helicopter ride over the falls and then went swooping through the canyons - felt like Indiana Jones! A thrilling experience. Helpful staff who were able to get me into the helicopter, despite my mobility problems. English pilot willing to manoeuvre to allow the best photos.Great experience - but get there early!

The best place to be....no wonder it is the smoke that thunders. When I got to the site... I wondered how David Livingstone felt when he saw it....too bad he had no camera 🎥 to help him with description when he got back to England. April is the best time to see it and the best view is on the... More

Enjoyed a very nice private tour of the falls with a guide (Charles) from Wild Horizons while visiting in late March 2017. There are no words to describe the beauty... magnificent, spectacular... those words simply do not do justice to the experience. We were not expecting how full the falls would be... or that we would need to wear rain... More
