Victoria Falls

The Victoria Falls or Mosi-oa-Tunya (‘smoke that thunders’) are located in southern Africa on the Zambezi river in between the countries of Zimbabwe and Zambia. The falls were discovered in 1855 by Scottish explorer David Livingstone and were named after Queen Victoria. The Victoria Falls are considered the largest waterfall in the world based on its width (1 mile wide) and its height (360 ft), forming the largest sheet of falling water in the world. The spray from the falls typically rises to a height of over 400 metres (1,300 ft), and sometimes even twice as high, and is visible from up to 48 km (30 mi) away. Apart from the rainbow that is always present due to all the mist and spray, at full moon, a “moonbow” can be seen in the spray. The rainforest surrounding the area is nourished from the spray from the falls and rare vegetation that is not found anywhere else grows there. Other activities at the falls include bungee jumping, white water rafting, canoeing, river cruises, flights over the falls, ballooning, viewing local arts and crafts, and wildlife excursions.
