Home > Heritage > The Mighty Victoria Falls

What a wonderful and lovely experience it was to see World’s largest waterfalls after combining the width in Meters(1708 which is and 1,708 metres (5,604 ft) and height of 108 metres (354 ft),resulting in the world’s largest sheet of falling water.

The Victoria Falls is roughly twice the height of North America’s Niagara Falls and well over twice the width of its Horseshoe Falls.In height and width Victoria Falls is rivalled only by Argentina and Brazil’s Iguazu Falls. David Livingstone is the first white missionary to have seen it and he named it after the British Queen.

The indigenous Toka-Leya name is Mosi-oa-Tunya.(meaning the Smoke that thunders).It is located in Livingstone. It is one of the seven (7) Natural wonders of the World. The beauty is unexplainable and mainly it overflows between February and May.
