Seeing Victoria Falls

You honestly cannot go to Zambia and not see Victoria Falls, or as it’s locally called, Mosi-oa-Tunya (The Smoke that Thunders). Right on the Zambia and Zimbabwe border you can enter the state park and take a path to see the falls in all its glory. I haven’t seen anything like it before. Nature is amazing! Africa is amazing! And just think, I saw Victoria Falls during the winter and dry season. They say during the rainy season, the falls are much more dramatic with higher water volume.


I was in Zambia as an International Reporting Project Zambia Fellow. The International Reporting Project is a part of  The Johns Hopkins University School of Advanced International Studies. I was reporting on HIV/AIDS, malaria and tuberculosis and how these three infectious diseases acutely affect mothers and children.


    • You know…I was just looking at these photos and thought how truly blessed I am that I actually saw Victoria falls. I never thought in a million years I would be able to do that. Grateful.


  1. Your photos of Victoria Falls are beautiful and bring back great memories for me of white water rafting the Zambezi river, and having lunch at the elegant Victoria Falls Hotel (although we were camping in tents at the nearby campsite!) Those falls are spectacular!


  2. Wow Jennifer! Your photos are spectacular! I have always dreamed of seeing Victoria Falls. I know someday I will! :) I truly loved following your journey to Zambia and reading all your stories. Quite amazing you are!
