MOSI OA TUNYA means "The smoke that thunders" is the native name for Victoria Falls.

It is another 2 months until rain will come. The falls are a fraction in size. One area called "Horseshoe Falls" is completely dry. Soon only Devil's Cataract and the Main Falls will be flowing. All others will dry up. In the rainy season, Victoria falls is the longest falls in the world. Not now! Niagara is the largest in volume. Iquazu is largest in system of falls stretching over 2 miles with 275 falls while Angel Falls are the highest. We have now seen them all! Even though it is the dry season, they are still magnificent.

Zambezi Explorer sunset cruise for our last excursion. A nice lazy trip to see the sunset and have a few drinks. Plus we saw hippo!

Total number of pictures/videos on my camera: 1529

I may try to see sunrise over the bridge if I can get up in the morning.

Comparing the falls. Don't know why Angel Falls In Venezuela is not listed. They are about the height of the CN Tower. Iguazu Falls is spelt many different ways.
