Smoke that Thunders!

About midway in its course through central Africa the mighty Zambesi drops thunderously over the edge of a chasm more than 100 m deep and 2 kilometres long, throwing up clouds of mist and spray. The local people call the falls Mosai oa tunya, 'the smoke that thunders.' We know it as the Victoria Falls, one of the world's most spectacular falls perhaps only rivalled in grandeur by the Niagara in North America.
The Victoria Falls were given their name by the first European to set eyes on them - the great explorer Dr. David Livingstone.
