Victoria Falls is one of the world's greatest natural spectacles. Declared a World Heritage Site, the Victoria Falls are shrouded in legends, romance, and myth. Long before the Scottish missionary and explorer Dr. David Livingstone 'discovered' the Falls in 1855, the local Batonga people had named them Mosi-oa-Tunya, 'the smoke that thunders'. Livingstone named the falls for his queen, Queen Victoria. Today, Victoria Falls village rightly claims the title of Adrenaline Capital of Africa, home to a seemingly endless variety of adventure sports, from bungee jumping to canoeing and whitewater rafting.
