Victoria Falls - The Smoke That Thunders
Victoria Falls is one of the world's most beautiful and romantic destinations. Designated a protected World Heritage Site, it is one of the few waterfalls in the world where one can witness up close the spectacular sight of over 550 million litres (145 million gallons) of water barrelling down a 2.5 km (1.5 mile) wide precipice.
The Victoria Falls are situated on the Zambezi River, which flows between Zimbabwe and Zambia, but Zimbabwe has always been the most popular access point. The force of the water sends a spray up into the air that can be seen from a 30 km (19 mile) distance. Due to its formation, excellent viewing of the Falls is possible from many angles, making for great photographic opportunities.
