Victoria Falls is never disappoints, whether you’re seeing the waterfalls themselves for the first time, staying in one of the area’s hotels, or catching your breath after gorge swinging over the Zambezi river. Victoria Falls is one of the Seven Wonders of the Natural World, and is classed as the biggest waterfall in the world because it is both wide and high, at 1700 and 108 metres. That’s about 18 soccer pitches wide by 1 ½ high. The spray itself can reach as high as 400 metres in to the air, and it can be visible from as far as 50 kilometres or 31 miles away. You can walk along and view two-thirds of the falls from the Zimbabwean side. It is, unsurprisingly, a UNESCO World Heritage site.
