Caption

Victoria Falls buffalo hunt. African buffalo (Syncerus caffer) being hunted at Victoria Falls, on the Zambezi River in southern Africa. The hunters are using both rifles (left) and spears (foreground). Vultures circle overhead. This waterfall, one of the world's largest, is known locally as Mosi-oa-Tunya ('the Smoke that Thunders'). This illustration is by British artist Thomas Baines (1820-1875), who documented the scenery, flora and fauna of southern Africa from 1857 to 1864. In 1858 and 1859 he travelled with British explorer David Livingstone along the Zambezi River, visiting Victoria Falls and the surrounding areas.
