Far beyond SA’s borders lie some of the world’s best-known cascades. While they may be too far away or too costly to visit on a whim, they’re certainly a worthy bucket-list destination, should the travel gods smile on you some day.
WORLD-FAMOUS FALLS VICTORIA FALLS (“MOSI-OA-TUNYA” – “THE SMOKE THAT THUNDERS”) Victoria Falls, on the Zambezi River which forms the border between Zimbabwe and Zambia, dazzles with its sheer size.
At 1 708m wide and 108m high, it’s recognised as the largest waterfall in the world. This falling sheet of water never fails to astonish visitors, is listed as one of the Seven Wonders of the World and is also a Unesco Heritage Site.
