The Victoria Falls In The Dry Season
The Victoria Falls in the dry season is reduced in size so much that it becomes a shadow of itself. However, when
it's at its peak just after the rainy season, it has a volume of 1,500 cubic meters of water.
During the dry season, the Volume of water that plunges down a height of 110 meters is low and visitors don’t
enjoy its full spectacle like when it's at its peak.

How The Falls Were Formed
The Falls where as a result of the erosion of the softer rock by the falling water over a long period of time.
The water broke off portions of the harder rock resulting in the huge cataracts that are now Victoria Falls. The locals call it Musi-otunya (Lozi) and Shungu namutitima (Tonga).
