Small charge to enter which I cant remember what it was. We only stayed about 10 minutes and it wasn't really worth it but no big deal. The falls viewing area is basically one big vending zone with people selling anything and everything. Lots of...More

The Falls themselves are spectacular but be very careful of the friendly people that place chameleons on your arms. These people are pests. You will have trouble getting rid of them to enjoy the sight of the falls. As soon as they touch you they...More

True, the falls are a joy to watch, set in lush greenery, but to get into the area you pass through a rough and messy area. And from time to time vendors of souvenirs - and of chameleons for you to take pictures of -...More
