Tricky one. All I can say Victoria Falls town is in Zimbabwe and the ” Falls” are best viewed from Zimbabwe. Zimbabwe faces the main falls across what marks the starting point of the Batoka gorge. The rain forest and the pathways to viewing the Falls are in Zimbabwean side too. Victoria Falls is a host to adventure activities from both Zimbabwean side & Zambia side in Livingstone. With the Univisa affords travelers multiple entries into Zimbabwe & Zambia using one Visa (UNIVISA).
To visit the legendary Victoria Falls travelers are encouraged to use Victoria Falls International airport and check in in Hotels in Victoria Falls (Zimbabwe).

The park is open year-round, but you will get a very different experience depending on the season in which you visit.
In the rainy season (December to March), the water volume will be higher, and the falls will be more dramatic. You are guaranteed to get wet if you cross the bridge or walk along the trails winding near the falls. On the other hand, it is precisely because the volume of water is so high that your viewing of the actual Falls will be obscured: by all the spray.
In the dry season, (April to October), the water volume will be lower, and by October, Victoria Falls might just be a trickle. You will get a clearer view of the rocky ledge beneath the falls, which is pretty spectacular by itself, but the falls might be somewhat underwhelming. This said, it is still a great experience visiting the falls in the dry season (for instance November), as you can experience both “falls” and the rocky gorge. You can have the chance to swim in Devil’s Pool.
