Photographer's Note

The Victoria Falls constitutes one of the most spectacular natural wonders of the world. The Local people call it "Mosi-oa-Tunya" -- the smoke that thunders and the Falls are remarkable. There is a magic about them manifested in the towering column of spray when the river is high, the thunder of the falling water, the terrifying abyss and tranquil lagoons upstream in which hippo and deadly crocodiles lurk.
The Victoria falls is 1 708 meters wide, making it the largest curtain of water in the world. It drops between 90m and 107m into the Zambezi Gorge and an average of 550,000 cubic metres of water plummet over the edge every minute.
A number of activities can be undertaken. The 'Flight of Angels' provides a fabulous vista of the falls, the upstream river and its many islands and for the more adventurous there is microlighting with stunning views of the Fall.
Rafting the wild rapids below the Falls is a very popular adventure. Visitors can also kayak, canoe, fish, go on guided walking safaris, ride on horseback and lunch on Livingstone's Island.

I took this picture from a helicopter...The cost of 30 minute rent trip with a helicopter is cheaper than one day cost of 'renting a car'. The bridge you see in the photo, is the border path of Zimbabwe ve Zambia. The falls is actually shared by two countries.

Fotoğrafı helikopterden çektim... Helikopterin 30 dakikalık kirası günlük araba kiralamaktan daha ucuz... Resimde görülen köprü Zimbabwe ve Zambia araındaki sınır geçişi... Köprünün alt kısmında bulunan ve şelalelere doğru uzanan yarığın sol tarafı Zimbabwe, sağ tarafı Zambia.. Yani gerçekte şelale her iki ülke tarafından paylaşılmış durumda...
