The most amazing thing I've ever seen. Niagara pales in comparison after a visit here. Great place and activities for adventure travelers--but watch out for the monkeys.

Such impressive falls in terms of the seemingly never-ending width of them, and also the power with which they drill into the small slot canyon separating you from them.
On the Zambia side definitely walk all the way to the end of the knife's edge, and also traverse down to the boiler pot, and a long the photographic trail. Bring a camera, but also plan to get soaked (or purchase a little poncho there), and figure out how to ensure to keep your camera dry. A dry case would be the best option.Recommended for:Outdoor Enthusiasts

OK let’s cut to the chase; is it better to visit Victoria Falls from the Zambia or Zimbabwe side?
Answer: If you want spectacular shots of the world’s largest curtain of water then head to Zimbabwe. If you want to feel the full force of the falls then go to Zambia. Alternatively do both as they are only 1km from each other, though you will have to tackle the immigration in-between and the subsequent visa fees.
Having experience both sides on numerous occasions, and having just returned recently, for me the sheer awe of being on top of the falls in Zambia is one of the best things you can do. Walk from the falls across a narrow bridge to a large island and experience the buffeting winds, the spray that comes at you from all angles and the exciting experience of feeling like a little kid again (with all the squeals and laughter that you’d forgotten you had in you.
Stay in Zambia at one of the Sun International hotels such as Zambezi Sun (4 star) which sits atop the falls, or its 5 star neighbour the Royal Livingstone. If you have more time then I can highly recommend the upstream lodge properties run by Wilderness Safaris: Toka Leya and The River Club, or stay at the equally stunning Tongabezi.
