Video: Discovering the Victoria Falls, Zambia and Zimbabwe


For any adventure travel in Zambia and Zimbabwe, discovering the Victoria Falls (Mosi-oa-Tunya, "The Smoke That Thunders" in the Lozi language) is the most important thing to do. The majestic Victoria Falls are the most iconic attraction in Zambia and Zimbabwe.

While it is neither the highest nor the widest waterfall in the world, Victoria Falls is classified as the largest, based on its combined width of 1,708 m and height of 108 m, resulting in the world's largest sheet of falling water. 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

The Victoria Falls was discovered by David Livingstone on November 17, 1955. Hedescribed what he saw: "No one can imagine the beauty of the view from anything witnessed in England. It had never been seen before by European eyes; but scenes so lovely must have been gazed upon by angels in their flight."

The Devil's Pool sits at the top of the Victoria Falls waterfall, off Livingstone Island in Zambia. This is one of Africa's most death defying holiday attractions for any courageous adventure travelers. Livingstone island offers a view of Victoria Falls that is incomparable to any waterfall anywhere in the world.
