Victoria Falls

Reviewed By KEITH P - Southwest Finland, Finland

Victoria falls are many times larger than the 'title' attraction but similar in that you can have wondrous views from two different countries. We travelled during a central African tour and were pleased that the visa and transit procedures between Zambia and Zimbabwe were quick and efficient to allow us to spend time on both sides. February is the beginning of the wet season and there is a far greater amount of water cascading into the gorges. Consequently the spray is equally greater which does diminish the views to a certain extent and render the ponchos that were provided by our hotel quite useless. We noted one enterprising tourist who opted to view in just flip-flops and shorts, which was not as mad as it sounds and could be recommended. Flights above and into the gorge are available although we declined due to weather conditions but this is surely a must see attraction for anyone travelling to Zambia, Zimbabwe or Botswana. It should also be considered to visit the falls during the dry season when the water levels are low, the spray less and the views far more spectacular, but remember insect spray and sunblock.

Devil's Pool

Devil's Pool is adjacent to the famous Livingstone Island situated on the edge of the Victoria Falls. Guests can choose to enjoy an exhilarating swim to the edge of the falls during their Livingstone Island visit. The Devil's Pool is usually open between mid-August and mid-January - depending on Zambezi water levels. Livingstone Island tours are accessible through Tongabezi Lodge.

We had an incredible experience during our visit to Livingstone in Zambia. Walking along the Devil's Pool and seeing the incredible, stunning settings and the views was quite simply breathtaking. The highlight of the tour was the majestic, stunning and beautiful Victoria Falls, a fall from heaven, with the amazing sight of the waterfall and the thunderous noise of water falling down was an incredible sight and experience. Visiting Devil's Pool and Victoria Falls is a must for those who visit Zambia and are nature lovers.

Rhino Walk - Mosi oa Tunya Park

Reviewed By 746ballfamily746 - Sydney, Australia

Thankyou to the guides and wildlife police for helping these white rhino. We did a morning walk in a group of 5. Fabulous guide and police - both informative and caring. Good walk tracking rhinos until we found 3 of 12 in the Park. Was a wonderful experience. Just hoping it does not become too commercial as rhinos need rest too. Perhaps just keep morning walks - not afternoon. Thankyou for helping to conserve these great animals!

You must take this train! Not cheap, but what an experience. They have done an outstanding job restoring and maintaining this relic. You really get a sense of what train travel used to be like in the day.

Livingstone Museum

This popular museum contains Zambia’s oldest collection of fascinating samples from the area’s prehistory, as well as photographs, musical instruments and memorabilia belonging to Livingstone, the first white man to view Victoria Falls.

Reviewed By KEITH P - Southwest Finland, Finland

Being taught at school about the ventures of David Livingstone compares mildly with the vast amount of information within this museum about his life, exploits, discoveries and demise. What is most illuminating is some of the terms used in his correspondence which is held in easily read cabinets and the devotion he gained from two particular native aids. This is surely a place to visit - as well as the falls - to gain an insight into his life and existence when the area was totally undeveloped.

Livingstone Reptile Park

Livingstone Reptile Park boasts a collection of Livingstone’s most notorious reptiles. Our crocodiles have been rescued from the Zambezi River where they were posing a danger to both humans and themselves. Gwembe Safaris were asked to capture these animals to prevent any further threat to people or their livestock. Had we not done so they could have been destroyed. Getting close to these animals never ceases to invoke feelings of fascination, respect and fear.
