Victoria Falls

The Smoke that Thunders

Known locally as Mosi-oa-Tunya, translated as The Smoke That Thunders, mighty Victoria Falls has been named one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World and is claimed to be the largest single sheet of failing water in the world. Located between Zambia and Zimbabwe, the Zambezi River widens to 1.7 kilometres and then the full width of the river plunges 108 metres down into the Zambezi Gorge, sending clouds of spray up to 500 metres in the air, helping to sustain the surrounding lush rainforest.
