Victoria falls is a waterfall on the Zambezi River in the Republic of Zimbabwe, and Victoria Falls National Park. It is one of the most famous waterfalls in my country, and it gets its name from Queen Victoria, who first visited after crossing Africa to reach what was then called British East Africa. The fall drops about 60 meters (196 ft) and has a width of about 30 meters (98 ft).

It takes its power from two sources: rainwater held behind rocks at the top of the falls and flow from lush forests upstream. The rock dam that forms Victoria Falls holds back 11 billion cubic meters (3.6 billion acre-feet) of water.

Victoria Falls, is a spectacular sight and an important source of hydroelectric power. The falls’ most stunning feature is the moke that thunders’: a massive cloud of mist and spray which is perpetually ejected from the river, known as the smoke that thunders.

The Zambezi River below Victoria Falls drops 30 meters (98 ft), making it one of the largest waterfalls in the world. The falls also form part of the great Zambezi River, which is 1,700 kilometers (1,056 mi) long before meeting the Indian ocean at the Mozambique Channel and forms part of the border between Zambia and Zimbabwe.

The river is broad and deep before it plunges over the falls. The falls can be accessed by road from Livingstone (which is named after David Livingstone, the Scottish explorer who first sighted the falls up-close in 1855) and from the regions of Zambia and Zimbabwe. The height of Victoria Falls makes it particularly well known for bungee jumping. (less)
