One of Africa's - and the world's - great natural wonders, the Victoria Falls, has roared back to life, just months after a severe drought in southern Africa caused parts of it to dry up.

Known locally as Mosi-oa-Tunya, the "Smoke that Thunders", it straddles the border between Zambia and Zimbabwe and is a World Heritage site.

The flow of water over the falls is now well above the seasonal average following heavy rainfall further up the Zambezi River.

But few people will get to enjoy the spectacle because Zambia and Zimbabwe have closed viewing areas as part of a coronavirus lockdown.
