We visited the Victoria Falls in July 1994. We spent a few days in Vic Falls before and after our visit to Botswana.
The day we arrived, we started with a flight in an helicopter, to get an overview of this spectacular area and a first impression of the grandeur of the Falls. It was my most breathtaking experience ever.
The next day we visited the falls early morning by feet, we walked through the small stretch of rainforest.
We spent hours visiting the many fantastic view points and enjoyed the views, the power and the noise of the water, the spray at our face. It was overwhelming.

    "Smoke that thunders"... as poetic and beautiful as the "big water" (Iguassu Falls).
