Victoria Falls

Victoria Falls is a town in western Zimbabwe and a gateway to the massive waterfall of the same name The Victoria Falls “The Smoke that Thunders”. Here, the Zambezi River plummets over a cliff and into the Boiling Pot before flowing through a series of gorges. The Devil’s Pool, a natural infinity pool, is on the edge of a sheer drop. Spanning the river is 1905 Victoria Falls Bridge. The surrounding Zambezi National Park is home to white rhinos and elephants. The Victoria Falls has been described as one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the world. There are two islands on the crest of the falls that are large enough to divide the curtain of water even at full flood: Boaruka Island (or Cataract Island) near the western bank, and Livingstone Island near the middle—the point from which Livingstone first viewed the falls.
