Subjects : Beautiful views of the falls. Rainbow day and night. Baboons in the hundreds. A multitude of birds, but I would not go for these only for the reduced chance of stalking and the existence of other parks incomparably more interesting. In the same area there is the Mosi oa Tunya National Park, but they certainly other parks in the planned trip would not waste my time here.

Recommended equipment : Obviously a good wide-angle, but also something that covers up to a 200mm. I would not go over. The weight of a canvas that you will certainly have with you on the go could be avoided. If you really do not want to risk losing something and regret of not having the remote with you, a multiplier may be the solution. The tripod is necessary especially for shots at night rainbow. I had with me, but the existence of a single point dry and useful to photograph the rainbow at night, resulting in the presence of different people with very limited space to place it profitably, they made me prefer two walls that hold up the fence that ran egregiamente.Se you want to go in the period of maximum flow the road that runs parallel to the front of the waterfall, bring a good waterproof protection for camera and photo backpack if you do not want to risk throwing everything because you will find yourself walking and photographing with the feeling of being in among dozens of people who will continually spill buckets of water on him ... and I'm not exaggerating. I was equipped and I also removed his clothes walking in slippers and costume. I put some pictures on the site explanatory.

Best months : During the period of maximum flow during and at the end of the rainy season (from February to May) the views during the day are virtually impossible not only to photograph but also just to see because of the sprays so high that they are compact and visible from 40 km, while this is the best time for the rainbow moon. Remember that the Falls Park is open at night only in the three days around the full moon, and then only on those days you can enjoy the lunar rainbow.Negli other times of the views should be truly remarkable (the conditional because I have seen firsthand ) due to the conformation of the incredible waterfalls: 1.5 Km in front of water that plunges 100 meters into a narrow gorge, and you can view it all on the opposite side of the gorge, very close to the water.

How to get there : The Victoria Falls are on the border between Zambia and Zimbabwe and very close (about 60 km) to the one with Botswana and Namibia, then you have various opportunities means of travel to get there. Always find a lot of good health formalities (vaccinations) requests the borders especially if you are traveling by land because they vary according to the origin and may be compulsory. Nearby there are two towns that you can use as a starting point: Livingstone (Zambia) and Victoria Falls (Zimbabwe). Livingstone, where I stayed, is very pretty and safe (always remember where you are), but I have news that Victoria Falls is also safe despite the situation of the rest of Zimbabwe is currently difficult. I have stayed at Fawlty Towers, a very nice hostel, functional and economical also has double rooms with bathroom and a internal agency that can organize what you want: I would recommend it. For the waterfalls are 10 km. and there are plenty of taxis (U.S. $ 8 each way), or you may find as I did that with a private autodotato not save much but will allow you to approach much less tourism to the area. The Fawlty Towers offers complimentary airport transportation when you arrive in Livingstone but not when you go away and transport always free in the morning to the waterfalls but also here on the way back you will have to do yourself. I asked the night of arrival to the guard at the entrance of the hostel who called me brother and I have been two days with two of them turno.A Livingstone you can get on the plane with excellent Proflight domestic flights from various cities in Zambia , but also with direct international flights from South Africa.

Visits : The falls are located in the park of the same name and you have to pay to get a ticket ($ 10 U.S. $ 12 U.S. daytime and evening entertainment for the lunar rainbow). In the days of the full moon, if you are already in the morning, you still have to go out and pay the entrance for the evening. During the day, if you go to return later in the afternoon you have to pay again the entrance, since the ticket is valid for only one entry and it is not daily.

Notes : For the location of the Falls, Livingstone is a very good point, but it obviously depends on your route, make puntatine in other nations and parks. Meanwhile, the falls can be visited from both the front and from that Zambian Zimbabwean (not worth it in the latter periods of maximum flow of the Zambezi because you can not see anything), then it is easy to organize bets even several days in Botswana especially the fantastic Chobe national park. If you are traveling by land then you can certainly arrange to continue also in Namibia.
