The locals put it best – ‘the smoke that thunders‘. Back in 1855, David Livingstone had a pretty good go of it too: "The whole scene was extremely beautiful; the banks and islands dotted over the river are adorned with sylvan vegetation … the most wonderful sight I had witnessed in Africa". Who are we to disagree? The great thing about Victoria Falls is that it’s not just the magnificent, addictive views that are so memorable, but the overall sensory impact. Stand at the mist-made rainbow’s end and look out over the mighty, hypnotic cataract. Then listen to the great roar, and breathe in deep to taste its spray. A mesmerising experience of one of nature’s great spectacles, and a memory that stays with you forever.
