Cliff divers at Victoria Falls – level 1

Cliff divers at Victoria Falls – level 1

29-03-2016 15:00

Two cliff divers jump into the Zambezi River. They jump from 30 metres. The river is a boundary between Zambia and Zimbabwe. It is near Victoria Falls.

The men are professionals. They normally jump from between 26.5 and 28 metres. Thirty metres is new to them.

Victoria Falls are the largest in the world. People also call them Mosi-oa-Tunya or the Smoke that Thunders.

Difficult words: cliff diver (a person who dives/jumps into the water from a cliff – rocks that are up high), boundary (a border; a line where one country ends and another starts).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
