Mosi-oa-Tunya / Victoria Falls

Brief description

These are among the most spectacular waterfalls in the world. The Zambezi River, which is more than 2 km wide at this point, plunges noisily down a series of basalt gorges and raises an iridescent mist that can be seen more than 20 km away.

Unesco WHS list ref: 509

I have visited this site twice: once seeing the falls from Zambia, and once from Zimbabwe. Hugely impressive, even when there is not much water flowing. You only really get a sense of how these falls were formed from the air
