I could hear the roar of the water before I saw it; all 500 million litres that pour over the edge of Victoria Falls every minute. The wet mist that sprays off the falls can be seen more than 20km away and we were all soaked through before we had even caught a glimpse of ‘The Smoke that Thunders’.
It might not be the tallest or widest waterfall in the world, but with it’s thundering noise, wild setting in the middle of Africa, its awesome power and magnitude, and when a refraction of the light causes a colourful rainbow to arch across the gorge, Victoria Falls is without doubt one of the most jaw-dropping.

Ayla, Beautiful photo. Deb and I (your friends from Idaho) had great experiences when we were there. Your photo stirs great memories. Thanks, Joe
As if we could ever forgot who you are Joe!! Everyone who visits Victoria Falls must surely be blown away. Thanks for the lovely comment – hope you’re both well 🙂
Amazing! What a lovely picture, Ayla 🙂
Thanks Nita! 🙂
Gorgeous photo! You guys were lucky. We went in the dry season and there was hardly any water on the falls. It did mean that the Zambezi was “safe” for white water rafting, though! I guess I’ll just have to go back to see the falls at full throttle.
Even when we went, compared to some of the other big waterfalls I’ve seen, Victoria Falls had a lot less water. Still stunning to see though.
Absolutely stunning image and we could feel the beauty and about the ambiance from your words 🙂
Thanks a lot for sharing and have a nice day 🙂
Thank you for the lovely comment. I’m glad you like it 🙂
