The Victoria Falls is one of the seven wonders of the world. The spectacular falls on the Zimbabwean side are visited by more than 1.7 million people every year. The falls are named after the town of Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe, a place where they are located. The other part of the falls is on the Zambian side but it doesn’t offer a spectacular view.
On the Zimbabwean side, you can see the full gorge and Devil’s cataract, water flows throughout the year but it varies on a seasonal basis. The falls are at their peak from March to May with April having the highest flow which sends thick sprays into the atmosphere, forming a rainforest and near-opaque mist that makes you feel like you are in a steamy bathroom. When you are visiting the falls during this period, make sure to bring with you more than an umbrella. You need a raincoat and water goggles. The thundering and roar of the huge water curtain cascading down the gorge is a marvelous sound and sight that will give you the thrills.
All in all, the Zimbabwean side offers the greatest experience of the falls, as well as the rainforest, in addition to the Victoria falls game park and accommodation facilities which are not far from the falls.
