We made a return trip to the Zambian side of the Falls on a tour from Kasane in Botswana. As others have said, October to March is the rainy season there and early 2017 has been unusually wet, so there was an unbelievable amount of water going over!! Photography was hence difficult/impossible, but if you are on a planned holiday,... More

Brought visitors who haven't been to Zambia before, and this was obviously high on the list of things to do! They were amazed, as was I, despite having been so many times over the last 40 years! Must do it without the ponchos at least once though to fully appreciate the volume of spray that comes over at this time... More

Stunning natural wonder of the world. Almost impossible to describe the sheer beauty and power of the falls. Go prepared to get very wet and take sensible walking sandals as training shoes will get soaked!

Access to the Falls on the Zambian side is adjacent to the border post. Payment is on entry, children are free, Zambian residents pay K10 per adult. Rain coats available for hire as you approach the Falls. The Falls are VERY full this time of year, visibility diminishing as you get closer. Always spectacular!!

The Falls is best visited either between April - June when they are at their fullest and the full flow of water cascading over is experienced (The Mist that Thunders). Alternatively September to December enables one to see the actual walls of the Falls themselves, particularly from the Zambian side due to the low water levels. A compromise would around... More

❤️ MY BUCKET LIST..walls and walls of waterfalls! Majestic nature. Tropical forest filled with chirps of happiness over the roaring sounds of volumes and volumes of water cascading over the rocks. I viewed from Zambia and Zimbabwe...

To see the Victoria falls is such an experience you cannot describe it. You will have to see it for yourself as pictures hardly do this amazing sight justice. Entrance is easy and cheap.

I visited the falls from both sides. The Zambian side gets you closer to the falls, but the Zimbabwean side offers a better overview of the whole wall of falls. Both sides are spectacular and should not be missed.

Visited Livingstone last week and happened to see Victoria falls. Following are my comments and advises; 1. One of the wonders of world, must visit it. 2. DO NOT go with formal shoes and pants. Better to put shorts and some slippers. Else,you can get pair of slippers inside and you can take off your shoes and put slippers, 3.... More
