The Victoria Falls

Even from afar, we anticipate something special: Despite the clearblue skies, a wall of clouds hovers near the ground - the rising sprays of the Victoria Falls grow up to 300 meters high. Over nearly 2 kilometres of a 110 m high rockface, the water masses plunge into the gorges of the Zambezi River. Against the background of the UNESCO World Heritage Site, the film conveys magnificent moods and wildlife tales from around Victoria Falls.
