Victoria Falls
Straddling the western border between Zimbabwe and Zambia, at the point where the Zambezi River drops into the Batoka Gorge, Victoria Falls is justifiably called one of the Wonders of the Natural World.

Famously described in 1855 by the explorer David Livingstone as exuding such power that they must have been "gazed upon by angels in their flight," and named by him for his Queen, the falls are the world's largest, spanning almost 2km (just more than 1 mile) and dropping some 100m (328 ft.; twice the height of Niagara).

The sight of more than 9 million liters of water crashing down into the Batoka Gorge is one not easily forgotten; on a clear day the veil of roaring spray can even be seen from up to 80km (50 miles) away. It is this phenomenon that gave the falls its local name: Mosi-Oa-Tunya -- literally, "the smoke that thunders."
