Cultural Travel to Zambia

Some 200 years ago, a man named David Livingstone first saw the roaring Victoria Falls in Zambia in 1855. Cultural travel to Zambia this year, honors David Livingstone, in the Zambian town of Livingstone. The falls, also called the “Cloud that Thunders,” are located in Africa between the countries of Zambia, and Zimbabwe, Rhodesia. Livingstone was a Scottish missionary in the 1800′s who was supposed to be the first European to view the falls. Why the “Cloud that Thunders?” See the image below, and perhaps it will help you to see why the falls produce such a cloud.
