VICTORIA FALLS, LIVINGSTONE & MOSI-OA-TUNYA NATIONAL PARK
Victoria Falls is one of the wonders of the natural world. It is called "Mosi-oa-Tunya", meaning, in the local language, "the smoke that thunders", which describes the spray and the roar as the Zambezi River drops over 300 feet into the narrow gorge below. The Falls have fascinated travellers since David Livingstone was the first European explorer to see them in 1855. Siting the Falls from his dugout canoe in November 1855, Livingstone could hardly believe his eyes at such a spectacle. The Falls were named by him for his queen, Victoria.

The Zambezi River and the Victoria Falls form the border between Zimbabwe and Zambia. The Falls are 1.7 kilometres wide and dump an average of 545 million litres of water over the edge every minute. Victoria falls has been declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. No holiday to Southern Africa is complete without a tour of the Victoria Falls. A definite MUST SEE in Zimbabwe or Zambia.

Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park (Zambia)
Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park - ‘The Smoke Which Thunders’, is home to the mighty and spectacular Victoria Falls. The park is found in the southern most edge of Zambia on its border with Zimbabwe. The physical landmark which separates these two countries is the mighty cataract of the Victoria Falls. The park is a wildlife sanctuary and well worth a visit not only for the sight of what are probably Zambia’s only remaining rhino, but also for the common species including the odd roaming elephant. On the northern bank of the Zambezi River, within the Mosi-oa-Tunya Park you can still see an old cemetery. Overall this small Zambian park is a must, if not for the wildlife, then definitely for the mighty and misty Victoria Falls.
