Later we reach the border to Zimbabwe, so that we arrive at our destination: the small town of Vicfalls at the Victoria Falls of the Zambezi River around afternoon. After our arrival you can visit the gigantic waterfalls. The first European to see Victoria Falls was the Scottish missionary and African traveler David Livingstone. Deeply impressed, he described the waterfall as “the most beautiful he had ever seen in Africa” and named it Victoria Falls, in honor of the then British royal Victoria. The native Kolo, however, call the waterfall Mosi-oa-Tunya (German: thundering smoke). The name refers to the water spray that rises from the falls at heights of up to 300 m and can still be seen up to 30 km away.
