Victoria Falls is neither the tallest nor the widest waterfall in the world. However, it ranks as the largest. This is based on a combined width of 1,708 meters and a height of 108 meters, resulting in the largest layer of water that falls in the world.

In height and width, Victoria Falls competes only with Iguazu Falls in Argentina and Brazil.

Waterfalls are one of the most spectacular natural wonders in the world and are definitely a must see destination.

Best time to visit Victoria Falls
The best time to visit the magnificent waterfalls is from February to May. This happens after the summer rains in the area where the water level is higher. The waterfalls are about twice the height of Niagara Falls in North America. The enormous force of the water drives a spray column into the air with a thunderous roar.

Victoria Falls (Zimbabwe) is located at the eastern end of the waterfalls, on the south bank of the Zambezi River. The airport is located 18 km south of the city and has international flights to Johannesburg (South Africa) and Windhoek (Namibia).

Livingstone (Zambia) is a historic colonial town and tourist destination for Victoria Falls, located 10 km south of the Zambezi River. On the other side of the waterfalls is a border town with road and rail links to Zimbabwe. The airport has international flights to Lusaka and Johannesburg in South Africa.
