Victoria Falls, Zambia 

One of the largest waterfalls on Earth, the Victoria Falls is 1,708 meters (5,604 feet) wide, and cascades down a cliff at a speed of 1,088 cubic meters per second (mean annual flow rate). Flowing from the Zambezi River, Victoria Falls is an important part of the economy, ecology, and culture of the region, helping not only with tourism, but also energy production.

The Scottish missionary and explorer David Livingstone, is known to be the first European to have seen Victoria Falls on 16 November, 1855.

Victoria Falls is about twice as high as Niagara Falls, and just behind Iguazu Falls in height and width among waterfalls worldwide.

The waterfall is located in both Mosi-oa-Tunya (meaning the cloud that thunders) National Park and Victoria Falls National Park in Zambia and Zimbabwe. Both nations share access to the falls, though the majority of visitors enter through the Zimbabwe side of the park. The visitors who would like to reach the Falls by air have to either fly to Victoria Falls airport (Zimbabwe) or Livingstone airport (Zambia). Trains, cars, and buses are all viable methods of traveling to Victoria Falls.

The flow of the Zambezi River is fairly heavy year-round, so Victoria Falls has a strong flow any time of year. The rainy season lasts from November to March, and creates a fuller waterfall, though visitors are likely to get wet. The rest of the year, the water levels will be lower, especially October.

The international visitors have to pay US$ 30 while the tickets for domestic/ national visitors cost US$ 20. The ticket for children under 12 costs half the price.
