“The most wonderful sight I have witnessed in Africa. None can imagine the beauty of the view from anything witnessed in England. It has never been seen before by European Eyes, but scenes so lovely must have been gazed upon by angels in their flight”. David Livingstone.

There are a few British explorers so synonymous with Africa than Livingstone.  These comments were made in 1855, when he visited Africa and had a glimpse of magical Victoria Falls. He proclaimed that he had the most wonderful sight. This is located in Southern Africa between two countries Zimbabwe and Zambia. This is supposed to be the largest waterfall in the world with a height of more than 100 meters and a mile wide. 

How to visit the Zimbabwean side of Victoria Falls 
Both the waterfalls are called Victoria Falls. The airport is 20 minutes outside the town of Victoria Falls. Unlike from the Zambian side which requires lots of logistical preparation, going from the Zimbabwean side is relatively easy. The falls is at a stone’s throw distance away from the town of the same name. Entrance depends on nationality and age. The standard adult rate for non-Zimbabweans is $30 USD. This is a single entry fee and if you leave, you need to pay again to reenter. As you enter the staff at the gate might advise you to take a path to your left. This is a path for self-guiding that encompasses 16 viewpoints.  You may go slow or fast, while an average tour last around two hours. For a keen photographer, the falls ample opportunity to catch some natural wonder at the wee hours in the morning. 
There is a bridge that connects Zimbabwe and Zambia. You are allowed into the Zambian side for a small time to catch some beautiful glimpses. You can purchase a Kaza Univisa that provides multiple entries and exits. Remember to take your passport.
