Victoria Falls - Africa's Garden of Eden

One can see them from distances up to 30 km: like a mumbling, bubbling volcano, ready to erupt, a glowing cloud rises from the earth. This is how one can experience the Victoria Falls at sunrise. Locals call this: “The smoke of thunder”.

Especially in the dry season, an unusual migration begins: elephant families come here from the Hwange National Park, 100 km away. While everything is dry where they come from, there is a variety of evergreen island just above the falls. A wonderful spectacle occurs when the animals change islands: they swim through the Zambesi as if they were a huge string of pearls.
