Vic Falls Air
The current geological history of Victoria Falls can be seen in the kind of the gorge below the falls. The basalt plateau over which the Zambezi River streams has many large fractures fulled of weaker sandstone. The largest splits run about eastern to west, with smaller sized north-south splits connecting them. The falls have actually been receding up stream over the last 100 000 years, eroding the sandstone-filled fractures to form the zig-zag voids which are called the batoka gorges. Today river’s course in the locality of the falls is north to south, and as a result opens the huge east-west split across its complete width, then cuts back with a brief north-south split to the following east-west one.

The African Wattled Lapwing or Senegal Wattled Plover, Vanellus senegallus, is a big lapwing, a group of largish waders in the household Charadriidae. It is a homeowner breeder in most of sub-Saharan Africa outside the jungles, although it has seasonal motions.
These are visible and unmistakable birds. They are huge brown waders with a black crown, white forehead and big yellow facial wattles. The tail is white, tipped black, and the long legs are yellow.
In air travel, African Wattled Lapwings’ upperwings have black flight feathers and brown coverts separated by a white bar. The underwings are white with black air travel feathers. The African Wattled Lapwing has a loud peep-peep call.
This species is a typical breeder in wet lowland environments, especially wet meadow. It often feeds in drier environments, such as golf courses, choosing pests and various other invertebrates from the ground. It lays three or 4 eggs on a ground scrap.
