About Victoria Falls

As one of the seven natural wonders of the world, it is little surprise that Victoria Falls is one of the most popular attractions in Africa. The cascading waters can be seen and heard from miles around and their powerful spray cools down visitors to the area. Throughout the day the fierce sun beats down on the water, reflecting off of the streams and often creating beautiful rainbows that arch over the gully between the falls. There are few sights on earth as awe-inspiring and majestic to behold as Victoria Falls. This is the ultimate showcase of the unparalleled power of nature.
