About Victoria Falls

Victoria Falls, also known as "Mosi oa-Tunya" ("the smoke that thunders") by the locals, is located nearly halfway along the 2700 km journey of the Mighty Zambezi River from its source in northwestern Zambia to its entry into the Indian Ocean on the coast of Mozambique. The Zambezi River plunges approximately 108 meters into the depths of the Batoka Gorge over a distance of nearly 2 kilometers, creating the world's largest curtain of falling water.
