Victoria Waterfalls

Victoria falls

The falls, named after the former English queen Victoria, by David Livingstone, are the worlds largest. Wide 1,6 km and 120 m high.
The local people called this never ending action of water "Mosi-Oa-Tunya". Something like "smoke that thunders".
During the time I was there, Africa suffered under a serious dry season. The falls were not that impressive (OK, it's an understatement). But the low water level in the Zambezi river made the wild water rafting more spectacular!
