Its known as “Mosi oa-Tunya” which means (“the smoke that thunders”).The Europeans named it that because they were amazed when they came across this beauty. It’s one of the seven natural wonders of the world. It’s one and a half times wider than Niagara Falls and is twice the height making it the biggest curtain of water in the world, which makes it the largest waterfall in the world!! Around mid-April is when the waters occur.
It can reach to 625 million litres over the edge per minute!! Victoria Falls was named by a Scottish missionary and explorer, David Livingstone named the place in 1855, after Queen Victoria, (the queen of England at the time). Victoria Falls was discovered on November 16, 1855. Victoria Falls was not man made, it is sitting on a Basalt rock and from the rapids of Zambezi River. Did you know without Zambezi River, Victoria Falls would not exist. Zambezi River runs almost exactly halfway along it, with the Zambezi River leaving the Falls and making its way east to empty into the Indian Ocean. Zambezi River is one of the fourth largest rivers in Africa after African River after River Nile, River Congo and River Niger. If you visit Victoria Falls you can see the mist rising from the falls. Victoria Falls has rain season and a dry season.
During the dry season late in August and till October, you can walk and swim at the top!! A group of rocks form this. It’s very interesting.
