Die Victoriafälle

Afrikas Garten Eden

You can already see it from 30 kilometers away: Like a seething volcano, a glowing red cloud rises from the earth. This is how you experience Victoria Falls at sunrise. "The smoke that thunders," is what the locals call it. The waterfall in the heart of Africa plunges more than 100 meters into the depths over a width of almost two kilometers.
