Day 2 Victoria Falls

The Victoria Falls are an enormous curtain of water, about a mile wide, plunging 108m at a rate of more than 12,000 cubic metres per second at its heaviest flow. In the wet season, the spray can rise up an incredible 400 m and the falls are an impressive raging torrent. It's no wonder that the local name Mosi oa Tunya means the 'smoke that thunders'.
