Just like with the Iquazu Falls in South America where you can enjoy views from two countries (Brazil & Argentina), its the same here between Zimbabwe and Zambia. We entered the Falls National Park on the Zimbabwe side and surprisingly had the trails and viewpoints all to ourselves for the better part of 3 hours. These are among the world’s greatest waterfalls – you can walk well over a kilometer to see their span.
A highlight of a walk here is to the very wet and very windy appropriately named “Danger Point” – this slippery precipice of a rock pile drops off in sheer cliffs on all sides with a view directly in front of the cascading waters. A visit out to the edge is not for the faint of heart – there are no fences or protection from these cliffs – you venture out as far as you dare.
The mists from the falls tower high into the air and parts of the viewing area are constantly raining – not just mist but big drops.
