Called "Smoke That Thunders" by the Kololo tribe, Victoria Falls plunges 100 metres into a gorge below the brink of the 1700m wide lip of the Zambezi River, thereby creating every minute between 20,000 and 500,000 cubic metres of water. The roar can be heard and the mist can be seen more than 20 kilometres away from the Falls.
The downstream rapids create the most breathtaking white water rafting and riverboarding. The highest bungee jump in the world is located here, plunging 111 metres down from the Victoria Falls bridge. Also included in the park are six national monuments and a town. The rain forest across from the Falls is sustained by the spray from the water. You can also go fishing or bird watching in the area.
The Falls continue giving the same fascination today to the many visiting tourists and honeymooners who perhaps have also come on a safari to game farms nearby.
