Victoria Falls or Mosi-0a-Tunya ( The Smoke That Thunders). The falls span the borders of Zambia and Zimbabwe. The falls are 1 mile wide and 300 feet high. The spray from the falls can reach several thousand feet. There is often so much spray that you can't even see the falls and you are literally drenched by the spray. When viewing the falls you are within 200 feet from the face of the falls.

David Livingstone was the first white man to view the falls and named them in honor of Queen Victoria. I was able to take a helicopter ride over the falls which allowed me to take some great photos of the falls.

I stayed at the Zambezi Sun Hotel which is located in the Mosi-Oa-Tunya National Park. It was very interesting to see Zebra, giraffes, monkeys and impala wandering on the grounds of the hotel. The hotel is just a ten minute walk to the falls.
