I had the pleasure of visiting the Zimbabwe side of Victoria Falls in August 2016. The falls can be seen from both the Zimbabwe and Zambia sides. Since this is in the Southern Hemisphere – this is winter for Zimbabwe and even though the falls are not flowing at full capacity, the view is breathtaking.Victoria Falls is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is one of the Seven Wonders of the World. It is definite worth visiting if you have the opportunity.
You enter the falls through the Victoria Falls National Park entrance. The walk from one end of the falls to the other takes between 1 1/2 and 2 hours to see well. At one end to he park there is a statue to David Livingstone (who saw the falls on 16 Nov 1855) and the path continues to the end of the falls near the Zambia border. Admission to Victoria Falls National Park is quite pricy and is priced in USD, but the view is well worth the price.
Victoria Falls is comprised of five different “falls”, 4 in Zimbabwe and one in Zambia. In Zimbabwe there is: The Devil’s Cataract, Main Falls, Rainbow Falls and Horseshoe Falls. On the Zambia border is the Eastern Cataract.
