The Victoria Falls Waterfall

Also called Mosi-oa-Tunya, this waterfall is located at the end of the Zambezi river, at the borders of Zimbabwe and Zambia. It is part of the Unesco World Heritage Site. It is classified as the largest waterfall in the world, with a combined width of 1,708 metres and height of 108 metres.

This massive waterfall accommodates five large falls: Devil’s Cataract, Main Falls, Horseshoe Falls, Rainbow Falls, and Eastern Cataract. There are two large islands in between: Boaruka Island on the west, and Livingstone Island on the east.

Victoria Falls waterfall is about twice the height of North America’s Niagara Falls, and over twice the width of just the Horseshoe Falls. There are two national parks in the waterfall area that are relatively small: Mosi-oa-Tuya National Park, and Victoria Falls National Park.

It was quite a clear day and we spotted two lost elephants trying to cross from Zimbabwe to Zambia.

We also spotted a beautiful rainbow right by Rainbow Falls.
