The entire 1079-meter width of the Zambezi River falls into the First Gorge, creating the world’s largest sheet of falling water. Each minute, 500 million cubic meters of water cascade 35 stories over the basalt cliffs – which is twice the height of Niagara Falls. There’s nothing else like it in the world.
As you tour the Zimbabwean side, you’ll have the chance to scout out the perfect vantage point for taking it all in. Walk through the misty rain forest directly adjacent to the Main Falls and gawk at the water plummeting 108 meters below. Then, marvel at the other major sites that are just as awe-inspiring: Horseshoe Falls, the Boiling Pot, Cataract Island, Livingston Island and Rainbow Falls.
The majestic site mesmerizes all who explore it, and you’ll instantly recognize why Victoria Falls is so deserving of the title as a National Wonder of the World.
