Victoria Falls...

Pure Nature... Magical... Wild... BEAUTIFUL

Locals say, U should visit the Falls 12 times a year... or at least 4, in different seasons, which causes different water level and creates completely different view.

I was there in February, in the middle of raining season... 
I'm planning to come back in October (middle of dry season and the hottest month)

Will let you know, if Locals were right! :)

Funny Thing about VF... If you're a tourist u need to pay 100 KWA (20$) for the Entrance, 
while residents pay only 7 KWA ;)

Oh! And if you're planning to visit VF, do not take too many things with you! Local Monkeys really liked my bag and they tried to steal it. I can tell you, it was quite scary to struggle with furious, 
very strong actually, red eyed and hungry wild animals... don't try it! ;)

So, take the camera. That's it, u don't need anything else. 
If it's rainy u can rent a double (very pro) raincoat and flip-flaps for 5 KWA.

Few words for History Lovers ;)
David Livingstone, the Scottish missionary and explorer, is believed to have been the first European 
to view Victoria Falls on 16 November 1855. 

He named his discovery in honour of Queen Victoria, but the indigenous name, Mosi-oa-Tunya—
"the smoke that thunders"—continues in common usage. Mosi is also the most popular beer in Zambia ;)
