Amazing curtain of falling water

Views: 197 Visited: Sep 2019 Reviewed: Apr 22, 2020

The Vitoria Falls is an unbelievable curtain of falling water. I have had he opportunity to be there in high, medium and low water seasons and each season has its own advantages. The thundering roar of the water in the high season is majestic. The beautiful rainbows in the low season a marvel to watch. The number of activities around the town are amazing. In terms of accommodation you will be spoilt for choice as there are hotels/ lodges to s... read more

The magical Victoria Falls!

Home to one of the seven wonders of the world - Victoria Falls.

This vibrant little town is not to be missed during a trip to Zimbabwe. With its fiery energy, the National Park and all its wildlife as well as the obvious breathtaking views of the Falls - you’ll leave with a new found zest for life. There’s an array of activities to get your adrenaline pumping. From bungee jumping to white water rafting, gorge swinging to enjoying the night... read more

Why Vic Falls is a must-see!

Views: 496 Visited: Dec 2015 Reviewed: Jan 21, 2016

While on our honeymoon in South Africa, my husband and I made a trip up to Zambia / Zimbabwe to see Victoria Falls and we are so glad we did! My husband and I felt it was well deserving of "the seven natural wonders of the world" placement and were amazed by the amount of water that rushes over the falls.

On our first day in Zambia, we took a boat over to Livingstone Island, where we were able to walk and sit on the very edge of the falls,... read more

"the smoke that thunders"

Views: 825 Visited: May 2014 Reviewed: Feb 13, 2015

This is the most famous of the mighty waters. At the height of the wet-season, five hundred and fifty million cubic meters of water roars over the edge of a cliff into the dramatic gorge, over one hundred meters below. What a sight to see!! This area is becoming known for adventure-sports. White-water rafting and bungie jumping are both available for those seeking an adrenaline rush. Or, you can simply take a relaxing canoe trip. There is an... read more

A good spritz!

Views: 631 Visited: Feb 2014 Reviewed: Jul 31, 2014

I'm a bit of a waterfall fanatic. I've been to Iguazu, Niagra Falls and Khone Falls in Laos. I found the falls impressive, but would rank them after Iguazu, which to me was absolutely amazing.
There was a lot of water going over but it was also very misty and hard to see. Also, beware of the baboons, who can be very aggressive!

Soggy and exhilerating!

Views: 586 Visited: Apr 2014 Reviewed: Jul 17, 2014

Vic Falls is a MUST for anyone who loves an adrenaline rush. You have to do the Vic Falls BUNGEE jump to do it justice. I went during high water time and was wet and happy. Would gladly return for another jump. read more

The African bucket list: a visit to Vic Falls National Park

Views: 559 Visited: Oct 2009 Reviewed: Mar 16, 2014

Victoria Falls can be viewed from two different countries (Zambia and Zimbabwe). I happened to be working on an African lion research project at the time, and had some time off to take a side trip somewhere near Livingstone. I had briefly seen the falls on my way up on an overland tour, but I hadn't visited the park itself. I'd heard conflicting opinions about which country had the best views of the falls, and for the most part, residents said... read more

Breathtaking Vic Falls

Views: 596 Visited: Dec 2013 Reviewed: Jan 16, 2014

I have been to Victoria Falls a couple of times. Each visit has left me awestruck. Being Norwegian, I am used to waterfalls, but the power and beauty of the Victoria Falls is stunning.

The best way to experience the falls is by walking the trail in the national park on the Zimbabwean side. The path takes you along the gorge, and lets you get glimpses of different sections as you walk along. There are 16 viewing points, each with breathtakin... read more

See it from both sides

Views: 679 Visited: Apr 2011 Reviewed: Jan 08, 2014

I initially planned on just seeing the falls from the Zambian side, since that's where I was staying and it was expensive to cross over a bridge, into another country, so I could see the same water only from a different angle. I eventually decided that we're only going to be here once, so I did it. I really recommend doing both sides. Yes, it's expensive, but the Zimbabwe side is markedly different and you do get a completely different perspec... read more

Vic Falls on a full moon

Views: 591 Visited: Apr 2010 Reviewed: Nov 28, 2013

Victoria Falls is impressive on the worst of days. Catch the falls over a full moon, when the park stays open in the evening (Zam side), and prepare to have your mind blown. The power, the noise, and the beauty is exponentially increased when you sit beside the rushing Zambezi under the light of the moon. It costs a little extra to extend your day into the evening, but its worth every cent.

A typical visit to Vic Falls has walk around the ... read more

Visually stunning...unforgettably powerful

Views: 747 Visited: Feb 2013 Reviewed: Sep 16, 2013

To my right the sign says “Welcome to Zimbabwe.” To my left “Welcome to Zambia.” Behind me, the Victoria Falls. Waterfalls can be higher, wider, and longer. But this is the officially most powerful in the world. It's estimated that 1000 tonnes of water drop over the edge, every second. I can hear the crash of the water from almost 10 kilometres away and it more than deserves its place as one of the new seven wonders of the world. The water ris... read more

Wow that's a lot of water!

Views: 643 Visited: May 2013 Reviewed: Jul 12, 2013

Spend the money and tour Victoria Fall by helicopter first. It is an amazing view and really gives you the full layout of the river and delta below. Then put on your rain gear and prepare to get baptized. We were there in May when the water and spray drenched us. It was all part of the experience. Wear shoes you don't mind getting wet or you can rent plastic shoes there. The sight and sound of the mighty falls filled,our soul.

You will be wet!

Views: 608 Visited: Mar 2009 Reviewed: May 29, 2013

There is mist EVERYWHERE! Victoria Falls strikes that same chord that a summer rain did as a child. The place is wonderful, the deep thrumming booms of the falls keep your innards a bit akimbo, and at times you're scrambling out along a slippery pedestrian bridge trying to protect your camera, giggling like a child.
It is quite an experience.
There was one small hike that takes you down to the water's edge that was prowled by rather violent-... read more

Raw Natural Energy : A spectacle Indeed

Views: 543 Visited: Jul 2012 Reviewed: May 09, 2013

With no awareness, the Zambezi river flows steadily, still, clear, moving waters that all of a sudden topple over 100 meters downwards. The roar, the thunder is massive, a grandeur, a spellbinding breathtaking spectacle that has rightfully earned a UNESCO world heritage site and "one of the greatest natural wonders in the world" title.
Entrance to the fall is through the national park charges are usd$ 30 pp for foreigners, a bit steep consid... read more

The smoke that thunders

The Victoria Falls Game Reserve, or as it is known as its local name Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park is a beautiful reserve bordering both Zambia and Zimbabwe and the “Smoke that Thunders” – the Victoria Falls.

The Victoria Falls is a UNESCO world heritage site and is one of the widest falls in the world at 1708m wide. You can take a sunset cruise on the river above the Victoria Falls and see the river crocodiles – just be aware that crocs c... read more
