Weekend trip to the falls!

Last weekend myself and two friends made a 2 day trip to the Victoria Falls, Livingstone. It was a great little excursion and we saw the the famous Victoria Falls or more correctly the real name Mosi-oa-Tunya (The Smoke Which Thunders).

The water levels are usually low at this time of the year but still ranging on the Zimbabwean side all year around.

Livingstone is a beautiful and peaceful little town and the perks of visiting at this time was that there were not many tourists clogging up all the sights.



I was told that there is another waterfall to visit in Zambia which is untouched and equally impressive. I am considering visiting while as I am still around for 2 months.

The Kalambo Falls on the Kalambo River is a 772 ft (235m) single drop waterfall on the border of Zambia and Tanzania at the southeast end of Lake Tanganyika. The falls are some of the tallest uninterrupted falls in Africa (after South Africa’s Tugela Falls, Ethiopia’s Jin Bahir Falls and others). Downstream of the falls is the Kalambo Gorge, which has a width of about 1 km and a depth of up to 300m, running for about 5 km before opening out into the Lake Tanganyika rift valley.
