Zambia: Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park

On the Zambian side of the falls, the National Park that protect them is called Mosi-Oa-Tunya which means “Smoke That Thunders”. The views here are different from the Zimbabwe side – you don’t get to see the entire wall of the falls but rather different sections – but you do get awfully closed to get absolutely top-to-bottom drenched. This is not mist here – it’s certified torrential downpour coming at you from all directions. Knife Edge, Rainbow Falls, Boiling Pot – all describe the ferocity of water actions here. Several overlooks take you up close and personal to the thundering and smoking water. And a bit inland, on forest roads, there are a lot of baboons posing for tourist photos in a non-aggressive way.
