Victoria Falls - Zimbabwe

Victoria Falls also known as “Mosi oa-Tunya” (“the smoke that thunders”) lies halfway along the mighty Zambezi River.The falls span the 1.5km width of the river, with the water plummeting 100m down the vertical chasm. 

Victoria Falls, or Mosi-oa-Tunya, is a waterfall in southern Africa on the Zambezi River at the border of Zambia and Zimbabwe. While it is neither the highest nor the widest waterfall in the world, it is classified as the largest, based on its width of 1,708 m and height of 108 m,resulting in the world’s largest sheet of falling water.

I might try this when I go to Zambia.

Zambians call it ‘Mosi oa Tunya’ (Smoke that Thunders).

Taking It Easy On The Zambezi: Wilderness Safaris’ Toka Leya Game Lodge

The lodge is located in Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park just outside Livingstone. The luxe level makes it the perfect place to start or end a bush itinerary, as South African Airways flies to Livingstone from Johannesburg, the arrival and departure city for most going on safari. At Toka Leya, you can recover from what for most travelers inbound is a flight safari, or, as THD was doing, savor being back in civilization and having the Internet again.
