Victoria Falls: “The Smoke That Thunders”
In the beginning of March I was in Africa. When we stayed in Kasane, Botswana, we went to Victoria Falls for the day on the Zimbabwe side. If this waterfall is on your list, when it is safe to travel again, get ready to get drenched! When we first got there we opted not to rent their rain jackets as they were still wet and that grossed us out. Luckily, I was wearing my North Face jacket, so both phones I had in my pockets stayed dry. The view was breathtaking! As we kept walking to take a look at the view from each lookout point, it got foggier and the rain was coming down harder. We started to run to get to each point faster, but about midway through I turned back around as I realized it would be too foggy to see anything by the time I got to the end and I did not want to chance losing both phones, as I was on a work trip! It felt great to be back in Zimbabwe again seeing this spectacular site and note taken that North Face is amazing!
The sound alone is powerful at Victoria Falls! It is located on the border between Zambia and Zimbabwe on the Zambezi River and is one of the world’s largest waterfalls at 5,604 feet in width. It is believed that David Livingstone, a Scottish explorer was the first to see the falls in 1855 and named them after Queen Victoria. This World Heritage Site also has the nickname of “The Smoke That Thunders.” It’s twice the height of Niagara Falls. Its only rival is Argentina/Brazil’s Iguazu Falls in height and width.
