WHICH SIDE TO SEE THE FALLS BEST FROM

During high water level, January – March the spray from the falls is very high and it is often best to view the falls from the Livingstone side.
During low water level June – November , there is very little water coming over the Zambian side of the falls and it is best from the Victoria Falls side
