Victoria Falls


The Victoria Falls is one of the most beautiful sights in the world! It lies on the border between Zambia and Zimbabwe.

The native people call the falls “mosi-oa-tunya” which means “smoke that thunders”. They call it because the falls can be seen from 25 to 40 miles away, and its spray rising from 1,000 feet into the air can be seen seven miles away! And long before you can even see the waterfalls you can hear the roaring of the water.

The falls were formed by a deep rift in the rocks that lies directly across the path of the Zambezi River. The rift was caused by movement of the Earth  about 150 million years ago. At the broadest point, the falls are 5,454 feet across. The height of the falls varies from 256 feet to about 354 feet in the centre.
