Victoria Falls is the most beautiful waterfall in the world. It may not be the tallest, which is Angel Falls in Venezuela, but Angel falls doesn't look like Victoria Falls.
The Zambezi river in Africa flows upon a wonderful landscape when suddenly the river bed gives way. It drops 328 feet (100 meters) into a deep gash that separates Zambia and Zimbabwe. The river, that was originally one and one fourth miles wide, is now a huge waterfall that flows into a deep, long gorge. The river that forms on the bottom of the gorge eventually flows into the Mozambique Channel.
The Victoria Falls is named after the British queen, when a Scottish missionary David Livingstone became the first white man to come upon the Falls. The native Africans have known about the falls and the towering spray, that rises 1,000 feet above the Zambezi plain, for years. They named the plain "Mosi oa Tunya" which means "The smoke that Thunders". Hotels, bridges, and trails suddenly appeared around the Falls because everyone wanted to see the beauty and power of Victoria Falls.
