Victoria Falls

1 anmeldelse

The enormous Victoria Falls on the border between Zambia and Zimbabwe is a popular stop for many people visiting South Africa. It’s not something you can do in a quick day trip from Johannesburg, but it’s certainly possible to see Victoria Falls on a brief side-trip from Johannesburg - which is what most people do.

Victoria Falls is often called the “world’s largest waterfall,” but that name can be deceptive. It’s not the widest nor the tallest waterfall in the world, but when you combine its width and height it creates the largest sheet of falling water. The falls were named to UNESCO’s list of World Heritage Sites in 1989. The name locals had given to the waterfall before explorer David Livingstone arrived in 1855 and named them after the Queen of England was Mosi-oa-Tunya, which means “the smoke that thunders.” This is a reference to the fact that the volume of water crashing over the falls creates such a constant mist that it’s always raining in a mist-like way.
