The Falls are breath-taking and beautiful. Excursion down to the bottom was very adventurous. However one needs a guide to keep away criminals who waylay visitors from the bushes with knives.

The Falls are not free. You will be charged to even get close enough to look and charged again if you want to hike down to them. THIS HIKE IS NOT FOR ANYONE WHO CAN NOT TOLERATE A HEAVY WORK OUT. I am in decent...More

Nice place for families or travelling groups. The hike down to the falls is especially daunting! Also, some dancers dressed in traditional African costumes entertain visitors and you can take a few selfies with them at a small fee..

A welcome stopover enroute to Lake Nakuru from Mount Kenya. An impressive view of the falls in a lush environment. It would have been even more interesting if there were some good coffee shops in the area where one could relax.

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
