VICTORIA FALLS ADRENALIN RUSH
The Falls are 1.8 kilometers long, 108 meters high and can fill up 11,000 Olympic size swimming pools in one second right after the rainy season (April and May) in Kalahari Basin when Zambezi River drops down the sheer walls of Batoka Gorge with a crazy flow speed. Her mist can reach up to 600 meters high as you feel it is raining upwards while standing across from her taking a look from Zambia and Zimbabwe.
The indigenous people of Zambezi, the Lozi named the Falls ‘Mosi-oa-Tunya’, ‘The Smoke that Thunders’…
Those Falls are artists, constantly creating rainbows, multiple rainbows during the daytime.
‘Moonbow’; have you ever heard ‘Moonbow’?. Well, on Full Moons in April And May when the skies are wide open clear, the Falls also teams up with ‘Luna’ to create rainbows at night time. This rare spectacle is called ‘Moonbow’, and is absolutely mindblowing.
Victoria Falls is truly a heaven for Landscape Photography as well as a perfect start or closure of an Exclusive Safari Expedition.
The Smoke that Thunders
Zambezi and Victoria Falls’ energy create such a lively habitat in addition to a series of breath-taking sceneries all around Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park: Sublime Gorges, Sub-Tropical Forests as well as Dry Acacia Forests in outskirts, large size mammals like Elephants, Cape Buffalos, Zebras and Giraffes in populated herds, Hippos, Crocs, a very rich Birdlife, and many more…
Although the Falls start looking naked and raw after September with decreasing water levels in the mid-dry season, Mosi-oa-Tunya keeps offering the best. Thanks to this immense size of the water source, wildlife congregate along the Zambezi as Migratory Birds arrive and join the Non-Migratory ones starting from September. It turns into a parade of colourful feathers.
