Depicting the great expanse of waterfalls on the Zambezi River, at the border of Zambia and Zimbabwe – Victoria Falls was named ‘Victoria Falls’ by David Livingstone in 1855. The original name by the local population, Mosi-oa-Tunya, was completely discarded and to this day the falls are called across the world by their Colonial name.
Mosi-oa-Tunya comes from the Kololo or Lozi language.
