Victoria Falls: The Smoke that Thunders

David Livingstone named them for his queen, but the local Batswana and Mokololo tribes were more poetic. They called them Mosi oa Tunya — ‘The Smoke that Thunders’. More than a century and a half later, the Victoria Falls continue to awe visitors. Stretching for more than a mile and plunging into a 360-foot gorge, the falls are recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the Seven Wonders of the Natural World.
