The cost of visiting the falls is about $5. You walk about a half mile before seeing the falls. Before you see the falls, you’ll hear them -- actually, a loud thundering of the water. Baboons dance on the trail toward the fall, almost escorting you to the view, which the children should greatly appreciate. The Falls extend about 2 miles. I viewed
them from the Zimbabwe side, which is what most of the tourists do.
When I visited, the water level was in between, with the falls being
most strong between February and April (allegedly making it almost
impossible to see anything), and the least dense between
August and October (allegedly not much to look at). Rainbows arch over the falls for extended periods throughout the day. There are plenty
of places to sit on a rock and read, eat a picnic lunch, and take pictures.
Despite the temperature being about 75 degrees, the spray of the water
makes it somewhat chilly. Rainbows abound, the view is one of the
most magnificent that I had ever experienced. Bring lots of film!!!
