Cliff divers at Victoria Falls – level 2
Two cliff divers jumped from 30 metres into the Zambezi River near Victoria Falls. This part of the river forms the boundary between Zambia and Zimbabwe.
The cliff divers are professionals. They normally jump from between 26.5 and 28 metres, so this was a new game for them.
The falls are the world's largest in combined depth and width and are also known as 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 in the air), combine (to put together), depth and width (how deep and wide something is).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
