Victoria Falls offers one of the world’s most awe inspiring natural spectacles. Forming the border of Zimbabwe and Zambia flows the mighty Zambezi River.
The Kololo Tribe living nearby named it ‘Mosi-oa-Tunya’ (The Smoke That Thunders) hundreds of years ago. David Livingstone of Stanley and Livingstone fame, named the Falls after Queen Victoria, upon seeing it in 1855.
A bridge spanning The Zambezi allows one to view the Falls from both countries. It is massive with a width of 2 kilometers, with the river dropping into a gorge over 100 meters below.
The views from land were so beautiful, I was compelled to join a few others on a late afternoon helicopter ride. Columns of spray could be seen from miles away as we approached from the deep blue sky.
Truly a magnificent display by Mother Nature and worthy of being named one of The Seven Natural Wonders of The World. Some additional photos:
