"Dr. Livingstone was compelled to seek out "Mosi oa Tunya" (The smoke that thunders) in 1855, and you should be, too! Imagine this mile-long 'curtain' of water coming crashing down into what is essentially a deep gorge. On the National Park trails you can walk out to lookouts across from this huge ..."curtain (twice the size of Niagara, for you North Americans). The geology is fascinating, but suffice it to say that for the last 150 million years, the Zambezi river waters have been eating away at the soft rock lines in the basalt and carving out a series of serpentine gorges. (All best seen from the air, and a 12 minute helicopter ride is worth it)
The Vic Falls National Park has had a recent upgrade and is a lovely park, with clearly presented educational boards upon entry, clean, easy set of pathways along the various falls, and a delightful little cafe (best sandwiches in the whole country).

"The falls defy description....I guess that's why it's one of God's most awesome natural wonders. You can observe it from several different locations, and still fail to take in all of it's raw magnificence.

My choice of hat and shoes made the uphill trek extra slippery, so I wish I had been a little better prepared to be drenched. With adequate preparation, this should be a wonderful adventure for all.
