Victoria Falls

The Victoria Falls or Mosi-oa-Tunya (the Smoke that Thunders) is a waterfall located in southern Africa on the Zambezi River between the countries of Zambia and Zimbabwe. The falls are some of the largest in the world.

While it is neither the highest nor the widest waterfall in the world, it is claimed to be the largest. This claim is based on a width of 1,708 metres (5,600 ft) and height of 108 meters (360 ft), forming the largest sheet of falling water in the world.

In addition to the Falls themselves, there are many activities that one can do at the Falls, including White-water rafting, helicopter rides over the Falls, bungee jumping from 110 meters from the bridge separating Zimbabwe and Zambia, a walk with lions, and several others.
