The spectacular Victoria Falls...one of the most iconic sites of Africa. They are really awe-inspiring. I was blown away, the Falls are truly nature at it’s best. I went in the rainy season and the entire length of Victoria Falls is a thundering wall of falling water (March). The spray was so heavy it was like walking in a thunderstorm. Un-for-get-table.
💧Five fun facts you should know about the Victoria Falls💧
1. The Scottish missionary and explorer, Doctor David Livingstone called the falls after Queen Victoria in England when he visited there in 1855.
2. While it is neither the highest nor the widest waterfall in the world, it is classified as the largest, based on
its width of 1,708 meters (5,604 ft) and height of 108 meters (354 ft), resulting in the world’s largest sheet of falling water.
3. The local indigenous name for the falls is Mosi-oa-Tunya meaning "the smoke that thunders".
4. Every minute, over 5 million cubic metres of water pour over the falls.
5. The spray from the falls make the River Zambezi Rain Forest the only place that receives rainfall 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Zambia’s charms are many and varied – this landlocked southern African country is home not only to the jaw-dropping Victoria Falls but also has even more seriously impressive natural sights. Zambia invites you to experience true adventure, exploring parks on foot, hearing the sounds of the bush and being drenched by spray from the Falls. The sheer scale and purity of Zambia’s natural wonders makes it an exceptional safari destination, yet many of its national parks are scarcely visited still.
