Victoria Falls, Zambia and Zimbabwe

The coveted double rainbow photo of Victoria Falls! Since it’s the rainy season most of the view sites are covered in mist and rain but the sun came out for a few hours for some spectacular views.

C. flew out from D.C. and we spent several days in Zambia and in Zimbabwe visiting the falls. We chose an adrenaline tour and went with a guide to Angel’s Pool. It is at the top of the falls and only 5 feet away from the edge to the rocks 300 feet below!!! It was crazy but fun!

Here are a few views from the top of the falls, from the Zambian side, and from the Zimbabwean side. The gorge forms part of the border between the two countries. The falls are the longest in the world at 5,604 feet wide and up to 100 million gallons a minute flow over the edge. The river is brown from all the soil runoff from the rains so the falls look striped!

The falls are called Mosi-oa-Tunya or The Smoke That Thunders because it looks like this from a distance. That’s the mist from the falls hitting rocks over 300 feet below!
