Victoria Falls is a UNESCO World Heritage recognizing this feat of nature as the largest waterfall in the world. The falls reach a height of 355 feet (108 m) and stretch across 5,604 feet (1,708 m) creating the largest single sheet of falling water.
Victoria Falls National Park is even smaller than its neighboring Mosi-oa-Tunya covering an area of only 9 square miles (23.4 sq km). The Zambezi River is the source of the falls which also serves as part of the border between Zambia and Zimbabwe.
Elephant, buffalo, white rhino, eland, hippo, and varying antelope can be experienced with short game drives in the park.
Victoria Falls Highlights:
Victoria Falls is the highlight. It is the world’s largest waterfall and one of the most aesthetically beautiful falls as well.
It is imperative to crossover the border and to experience the falls from both sides of the border. It really is two different experiences.
