'Mosi oa Tunya"= The Smoke That Thunders!

One of the wonders of the world! A
must see if your in the area. I wish
I had another day here. I went there
about 6am, only a couple of people
around. You need time to see all of
this. Maybe even take a short trip
over to Zambia!!
The best way to see the Falls, is by air. I didn't have time. Many ZIG-ZAGS & GORGES. There is what they call: DEVILS CATARACT. If anyone knows why please let me know. Hard to believe this wasn't really taken seriously for visiting till
in the 1960's!

Victoria, name after then Queen of England

I did take a chance walking alone to the falls. Could have been mugged!
Could have ran into elephant or lion.
Really lucky I guess. Had Baboon instead. Ran right in front of me.
Heading to my LODGE.
Anyways, back to the FALLS!

JUST LOOK AT IT!!!!!

Victoria's Rainbow

These falls, have names for each
set of falls. I don't know the names.
Only know GORGES & DEVILS
CATARACT. One thing for sure.You can't miss the RAINBOW! Always
there. With much to do in this area.
You need a couple of days. Also,
only a 2hr. ride from HWANGE PARK. Zambia on the other side of the FALLS. Botswana very near by.
If your thinking about going. Might as well.

    The gorge is magnificent. All photos were wonderful. Like the story of your introduction to elephants - great for a child to be so moved by the plight of others. Thank you.
