The Victoria Falls:

The Victoria Falls a spectacular sight of awe-inspiring beauty and grandeur on the Zambezi River, forming the border between Zambia and Zimbabwe. Many know the falls as ‘Mosi-oa-Tunya’ – ‘The Smoke that Thunders’, as named by the Kololo tribe who resided in the area in the 1800s.

Imagine more than five hundred million cubic meters of water per minute plummet over the edge, over a width of nearly two kilometres, into a gorge over one hundred meters below.
