The Victoria Falls or Mosi-oa-Tunya (the Smoke that Thunders) is a waterfall situated in southern Africa between the countries of Zambia and Zimbabwe. The falls are, by some measures, the largest waterfall in the world, as well as being among the most unusual in form, and having arguably the most diverse and easily seen wildlife of any major waterfall site.

Although Victoria Falls constitute neither the highest nor the widest waterfall in the world, the claim it is the largest is based on a width of 1.7 kilometres (1 mi) and height of 108 metres (360 ft), forming the largest sheet of falling water in the world.

Victoria Falls are one of Africa's major tourist attractions, and are a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

We were very fortunate to go when we did. If we had been there a month before, there was much less water because the rainy season had not begun yet. If we had went a month later, the mist would've been overwhelming and our view wouldn't have been so great. So, try to go in late January!
