The View from Victoria FallsI just kept saying “WOW!" Victoria Falls is twice as high as Niagara Falls. You'll stand in awe as you watch the world’s greatest sheet of falling water. Though none are visible in this photo, there are often so many rainbows that it’s hard to count them all. Spray from the falls can be seen for miles and miles—the genesis of “the smoke that thunders,” as the falls are known in the local language. Most memorable is that thunder--the powerful sound of all that rushing water.
