VICTORIA FALLS

 

Victoria Falls is neither the widest nor highest waterfall in the world, but it is the world's largest sheet of falling water.  It is twice the height of North America's Niagara Falls, and is only rivalled by Iguazu Falls in South America.

Dubbed "The Smoke that Thunders" by David Livingston, The British explorer, who was the first European to see the falls (November 16, 1855). He named them for Queen Victoria of the United Kingdom.
