Victoria Falls is one of the world's great waterfalls, a massive wall of water over a mile wide and 350 feet high (twice as high as Niagara Falls). The falls straddle the border of Zambia and Zimbabwe, which is formed by the Zambezi river. Tourists have the option of staying on either side of the border; in the town of Livingstone in Zambia or the town of Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe. There is a bridge just downstream of the falls, which connects the two countries. You can stay on one side and walk across the bridge to the other side.

Due to the economic meltdown and political instabilities in Zimbabwe, we opted to stay on the Zambian side of the falls. We did, however, do a side trip across the bridge into Zimbabwe.

    The falls look fantastic. Good tip to know about the peddlers, they can be pesky! I enjoyed the tour!
