At the border between Zimbabwe and Zambia you will immerse yourself in another world. An African goose bump experience announces itself with incomparable noise when ten million litres of water from the Zambezi River plunges 110 metres into the depths. Per second, mind you.
Welcome to Victoria Falls, the largest sheet of falling water on earth. The indigenous Lozi call it 'Mosi-oa-Tunya' - The Smoke That Thunders. The name refers to the spray of mist that rises from the falls at a height of up to 300m and can still be seen up to 30km away.
