Explorer David Livingstone could be accused of dampening expectations by naming these falls after England’s doughy queen: dour and staid they’re not. The locals, though, got it spot on, calling the falls Mosi-oa-Tunya – ‘the smoke that thunders’. They’re monstrously loud, and the mist rising as the Zambezi River plunges 108m into the gorge below – over 12,000 cubic metres per second at its heaviest flow – rises in vast clouds. See them from above, from below, from Knife Edge Point, from the Devil’s Pool and from Cataract View, at sunrise and by moonlight – just make sure you see them. Although flow is greatest between April and June, the best time for sunset photography is arguably October to December, when spray is not too heavy.

5 Life Lessons Learned By Working At McDonald's
What do actress Andie MacDowell, Amazon founder Jeff Bezos and comedian Jay Leno all have in common? They all once worked at fast-food chain McDonald's. Despite the punch lines surrounding so-called dead-end jobs at fast-food restaurants, working at McDonald's has been the launching point for many a successful career. McDonald's employees learn a lot more than how to flip burgers and work the deep fryer, said Cody Teets, a 32-year McDonald's veteran and author of the new book, "Golden Opportunity: Remarkable Careers that Began at McDonald's" (Cider Mill Press, 2012). Teets started working at McDonald's when she was 16 and today is responsible for 800 McDonald's restaurants as vice president and general manager of the company's Rocky Mountain region. Teets said there are plenty of opportunities for learning life lessons while working in the shadow of the golden arches.
