The spectacular Victoria Falls is known as the "greatest curtain of falling water" and originally as "the Smoke that Thunders" by the locals. It is a grand sight of awe-inspiring wonder on the Zambezi River, bordering Zimbabwe and Zambia.
Jumbo Williams, author of the book ‘Zambezi, River of Africa’, described the falls thus: ‘The first impression was unmistakable; immense power, the raw energy unleashed when the entire Zambezi leaps wildly into a black two kilometre wide abyss. The scale is massive, the spectacle spellbinding and perpetually changing. The falls hiss and roar as if possessed, they rumble and crash like thunder. Vast clouds spew and billow out from the seething cauldron of its dark impenetrable depths. The moving water creates a magnetism that sucks you closer, so that you recoil in horror to quench a subliminal sacrificial urge’.
To gain a full appreciation of the immense size of the Falls, one simply must see it from the air. Book a micro-light or fixed wing flight where the pilot will give you an unforgettable view of the breathtaking sight of this magnificent natural phenomena in all its glory.
