    The spray rising from the falls can be seen from a long way away and can look like smoke. The local name is Mosi-oa-Tunya, The Smoke That Thunders. Also in the photo is the bridge connecting Zimbabwe to Zambia.

  5. White-fronted Bee-eater

    White-fronted Bee-eater

    On the look-out for bees! Bee-eaters often good to photograph because, after flying out to catch something on the wing, they tend to return to the same spot. This one at Vic Falls but good viewing also at Chobe National Park, Botswana.
