The Victoria Falls

The Victoria Falls are careful by some to be among the Seven Natural Wonders of the World. the Scottish missionary and explorer, is supposed to have been the first European recorded to view the Victoria Falls., and this is the name in use in Zimbabwe.

The older, indigenous name of Mosi-oa-Tunya is the name in official use in Zambia. The World Heritage List recognises both names.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.
