After so many reviews what else is left to review about this place but couldn't resist.....Words fail to describe this natural wonder.One feels so humble in presence of these mighty falls and want to repeatedly thank God for giving opportunity to visit this place.
Lets come to practicalities. We went in April so the rainy season had just passed so the falls are full of mist.From 1st and 2nd platform one can see a part of fall and as expected its crowded with everyone eager to take picture.Next to 2nd platform one can rent raincoats,slippers etc for K10 .There is photographers there who will click your picture for K 20.After this One gets momentary glimpse of fall as the mist makes visibility poor.Still as we went about 6 times to fall during our stay we managed to have few clicks but its really hard to take photos or pose for pics.
On knife edge bridge again one feels as if standing in shower but what an experience.....keep moving and then you arrive at a point after which the guard does not allow you to proceed.
We were lucky to visit during Full moon and it was one of the most memorable moment in our travelers life.We went 2 nights in row to view this nature's beautiful phenomena and I recommend it to all.One needs to pay separately for this and its open till midnight....even Avani and Royal guest needs to pay entry fee for Lunar nights.The park guard accompanies you with a torch and many people brought rugs and drinks to sit and enjoy.

As I expected seeing one of the natural wonders of the world - AWESOME. I could have admired and listened to it all day.
Don't expect UK H&S standards and the vendors can be a little over-bearing, just ignore them.

We were there in February with four people. According to the guide, the Zambezi carries an average amount of water. It's like in the tropical rainforest.
The trails are sometimes very slippery. Best to wear plastic footwear with non-slip soles.

The little bridge is great. It offers a good view of the railway bridge over the gorge.
Rain ponchos are offered for 2 USD. This is absolutely recommended by me. Hygienic is your own rainwear including a rain pants. Then you stay completely dry. In warm temperatures, however, everything dries quickly or you change the clothes afterwards.

At the souvenir stands at the entrance, you are very personally beset by the sales.

Be sure to protect the camera from water. Otherwise you regret it with a total loss.

I also have been on the Zimbabwe side. Will come back - both sides have their charms.

You get a visa from Zambia to Zimbabwe. Take a multiple visa. Then you save money and time on re-entry.

The best thing ever; got up close and personal with Mosi (don't worry, not too close!). 15 mins was exactly right, as the 30 minute one takes you over the national park where we walked the day before.
