The Victoria Falls community had a chance to view the UNESCO world heritage site, Mosi-Oa-Tunya (the smoke that thunders), free of charge as part of activities to mark the 39th independence anniversary.

The Ministry of Environment, Tourism and Hospitality Industry allowed the country’s citizens to view the legendary waterfall as part of the independence celebrations and also to promote domestic tourism.

The legendary Victoria Falls

The locals who waited patiently in long queues for their turn to view the Victoria Falls, could not hide their joy and thanked the responsible ministry and Zimparks for the arrangement.

Those who had the chance to view the waterfall also saluted the freedom fighters for their sacrifice in ensuring that Zimbabweans freely exploit and enjoy their God given resources including the Victoria Falls.

The legendary waterfall is regarded as the greatest curtain of falling water on the planet and continues to attract so much interest worldwide.
