The Mighty Waterfall

This amazing destination is one of the 7 Natural Wonders of the World and is protected as a Unesco World Heritage Site.
 
The Falls is a destination that you cannot miss on your African travels. 
 
This beautiful and awe-inspiring natural phenomenon is found on the border of Zambia and Zimbabwe.
 
The fourth largest river on the African continent, The Mighty Zambezi River, plummets over a knife-edge here.
 
This almighty cascade of water creates one of the world’s greatest attractions, the largest waterfall in the world.
By the time the Zambezi River reaches the waterfall, the river is over 1,708 metres wide.
 
The waterfall itself reaches a height of 108 metres at its highest point, both these facts gives the falls the distinction of being the largest curtain of falling water on the planet.
 
By travelling to Victoria Falls, you will be viewing one of the most amazing places of interest in Africa.
Lets give you some interesting information about the waterfall.
 
It was discovered by David Livingstone, the famous explorer. He was shown the waterfall by the local tribe in the area, who called it “Mosi-oa-Tunya” – The Smoke That Thunders.
 
This describes the incredible mist and spray the waterfall generates when falling into the abyss of the gorge.
 
The gorges are a spectacular sight with the boiling waters from the waterfall flowing through the zigzagging series of 5 gorges.
 
These were created by millions of tonnes of water eroding the soft sandstone between hard basalt cracks. This erosion created a series of different waterfalls over the millennia.
 
The Devils Cataract is the start of a new fissure. The rock at the cataract is slowly being eroded by the turbulent waters over the falls.
 
The erosion will eventually create a new waterfall, thus creating a new gorge in the next millennia.
