THE LARGEST WATER FALLS IN THE WORLD 


The largest waterfalls in the worldThe   largest curtain of falling water on earth.”The most powerful adventure destination on the planet”,one of the seven  wonders of the world.David Livingstone said “No one can imagine the beauty of  the view from anything witnessed in England ,it had never been seen before by European eyes “.

The Victoria  falls are  not  the highest nor the widest waterfalls in world but are  the largest with a width of 1,708m(5,604feet) and 108 height (354 feet).This is why  it forms the largest sheet of falling water in the world .

It is not formed by mountains  or escarpments or deep  valleys which usually  make other  waterfalls  but its only  made by a  flat  plateau  extending  hundreds of  kilometers  in all  directions.

During  the  rainy  season ,over 500 million  liters of water falls over the  edge of the Zambezi river in a single vertical drop.It generates a  huge amount of  spray which shoots into the sky 1000 feet  and you can see it 30 miles away ,this gives it the  name “mosia o ya tunya” “the smoke that  thunders “.It also  gives  view to  spetecular rainbows  never  seen  on any  waterfalls in the world.

It has islands on it  namely cataract island and Livingstone island  and  more than one stream namely the devil ‘s cataract /leaping water ,main falls ,Rainbow falls (the highest ) and the eastern cataract  above all they cover  two countries.
