When British explorer David Livingston first saw Mosi-Oa-Tunya in Zimbabwe in 1855 he renamed it Victoria Falls after England’s Queen Victoria.  It’s first name, Mosi-Oa-Tunya means “the smoke that thunders,” and for good reason.  Every day more than 2,377,548 gallons of water rush over the falls.  The mist created by that much water can be felt over 50 miles away.  Imagine a waterfall 50 miles away that you might not be able to see, but you still can feel!
