The Victoria Falls or Mosi-oa-Tunya (the Smoke that Thunders) is a waterfall situated in southern Africa on the Zambezi River between the countries of Zambia and Zimbabwe. The falls are some of the largest in the world
They also seem to be the most unusual in form and have beyond doubt the most diverse and easily-seen wildlife of any major waterfall site.
OK here’s something you won’t read.Â Why the hell do people hang out on the edge of this thing?Â There’s one particular spot where tourists “swim” and look over the edge.
I can only assume there’s something over that edge preventing people from plummeting to their death.Â Otherwise, shouldn’t there be some law against this?
From September to December, due to low water levels, it is possible to swim at the edge of the falls in a naturally formed safe pool, accessed via Livingstone Island.
I guess that makes it safe?Â Anyway, it makes for some amazing pictures
