Victoria Falls - Zambia and Zimbabwe\nDavid Livingstone was the first white person to see the Mosi oa Tunya (the smoke that thunders) in 1855. \u00a0He stood at what is now called Livingstone Island and named the falls after Queen Victoria. \u00a0He stood from the island and could see a village off in the distance called Mukuni Village. \u00a0He walked to the village and met the chief. \u00a0He is said to be the first European the villagers had ever met.\n\nCheck out my post on The 15 Safest countries in Africa to see where Zambia ranks!\n\nVictoria Falls is classified as the largest waterfall based on the length and height of it. \u00a0It starts back in Livingstone at the Zambezi River and the water falls for 1.7 kilometres in the wet season. \u00a0We were here in the dry season (a particularly dry season) and there was hardly any falls on the Zambian size.\n\nSo once we were done with the Zambian side we went over to Zimbabwe to see the falls. \u00a0This side was much better as in there was a lot more water to see and they like to remind you that they have 75% of the falls from their side.\n\nIn Zimbabwe, I would be a billionnaire! \u00a0Not really but their money has been inflated so much in the last decade that they now use the US Dollar as their currency.\n\nYou can see a rainbow almost every day at the falls. \u00a0It was a long walk along the falls on the Zimbabwean side - 1.7 kilometres long remember.\n\nI also did a helicopter flight over the falls which was amazing and scary at the same time. \u00a0I'd never been in a helicopter before and I found the experience a bit weird. \u00a0First off it doesn't move like a plane but also the wind moves the helicopter back and forth. \u00a0Its an odd sensation.\n\nI got some great shots from the helicopter such as the one above. \u00a0I'm so glad I did the helicopter ride but I'm not sure if I would do it again. \u00a0It was a great view but a bit scary for me. \u00a0I felt that the company I used, Bakota Skies, was really good and have a good safety record but I don't know if you will get me into a helicopter again.
