Mose-oa-Tunya or “the smoke that thunders” is the original name that the Kalolo-Lozi people gave to Victoria Falls, due to the roaring noise of the water as it plunges to the ground and the billowing clouds of mist that rise up and soak everything and everyone in its vicinity. Victoria Falls is one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and the world’s largest waterfall in the wet season.
