Victoria Falls (or Mosi-oa-Tunya) Tokaleya Tonga:- the Smoke
that Thunders) is a waterfall in southern Africa on the Zambezi
River at the border of Zambia and Zimbabwe.
height is 355 ft at the center. The falls are formed as the
full width of the Zambezi river plummets in a single vertical
drop into a transverse chasm 5604 ft wide, carved by its waters
along a fracture zone in the basalt plateau.
While it is neither the highest nor the widest waterfall in
the world, it is classified as the largest, based on its width
5604 ft and height of 354 ft, resulting in the world's largest
sheet of falling water.
