Ah, you might say Ronnie, "Ah, the thunder of the Falls . .", but thunder it is. The magnificent curtain of water was named by the Kalolo-Lozi people as Mosi-oa-Tunya, “the smoke that thunders.”
The sound can be heard from quite a distance away and large clouds of mist rise above for many metres into the sky.
The mist is so heavy that it makes it quite a challenging experience to take photographs with a DSLR. Luckily I had thought to take a rain sleeve and a waterproof jacket. Despite that, I found it too wet in many cases to take photographs. I feared that my camera would not survive the heavy showers.
One thing you really do not want is to lose your camera with 4 weeks left of my voyage through Zambia, Botswana, Namibia and South Africa without a camera! (I am being a little dramatic, I took two, just in case!)
