The first European to see the Victoria Falls with his own eyes was the Scottish missionary and Africa traveller David Livingstone.

The indigenous Kolo call the waterfall Mosi-oa-Tunya (thundering smoke). The name refers to the water spray, which rises from the falls up to 300 m and can still be seen up to 30 km away.
