Lonely Planet says that the reasons for selecting the Victoria Falls as one the Top 10 Regions in 2014 are the following:
- to experience the raw power of the Victoria Falls is an all-round sensory encounter with mother nature
- Vic Falls (Zimbabwe side) and Livingstone (Zambia side) were hosting the 2013 General Assembly of the UN World Tourism Organization and therefore got multibillion-dollar makeovers
- Since the US dollar replaced the much-maligned Zim$ in Zimbabwe, the economy has recovered from years of hyperinflation – making 2014 the best time to visit in 15 years.
- Laid-back Livingstone took over the the mantle as the falls’ premier tourist town
