1. Victoria Falls
It should come as no surprise that this “smoke that thunders” is regarded as one of the world’s seven natural wonders and is a UNESCO World Heritage site. Victoria Falls, which are located on the boundary between Zambia and Zimbabwe, were initially discovered by David Livingstone in 1855 and were given the name Queen Victoria of England. Zimbabweans refer to it as Victoria Falls, whereas Zambians refer to it as “Mosi-oa-Tunya,” which means “the smoke that thunders.” With a breadth of 1.7 km, a height of 108 m, and an average flow of 1 million litres per second, it is the world’s greatest single waterfall. Sometimes, up to 25 miles away, one can see the spray or smoke that results.
