Mosi Oa Tunya National Park
Mosi-oa-Tunya National Park is a World Heritage Site and is home to the Zambezi half of the Mosi-oa-Tunya Falls. Mosi-oa-Tunya comes from the Kololo or Lozi language and means 'The Smoke Which Thunders'. The falls are known worldwide as the Victoria Falls, and are formed when the powerful Zambezi river plummets over 108m in a remarkable display of the power of nature. There is a 'sister' National Park on the Zimbabwean side known as the Victoria Falls National Park.
The National Park extends from the Songwe Gorge below the falls and along the north-west arc along the 20km of the Zambian river bank, covering a total of 66km
