All I can say is wow!! What a view, but watch out for hawkers, some are ok though, but be careful. The photo man was excellent, he takes your pictures with falls, and then you get a print , very quickly as well

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
