Victoria Falls, also known as the Mosi Otunia Falls, is located in the middle of the Zambezi River in Africa, bordering Zimbabwe and Zimbabwe. It is more than 1,700 meters (5,500 feet) wide and 108 meters (355 feet) high. It is one of the world famous waterfall wonders. The European explorer, David Livingstone, discovered it on the road in 1855 and named it after the Queen of England. Victoria Falls was listed in the World Heritage List in 1989.
Victoria Falls is twice as wide and taller than Niagara Falls. The average flow rate is approximately 935 cubic meters per second (33,000 cubic feet per second). The vast Zambezi River flows soothingly over the wide and shallow basalt river bed before it reaches the waterfall, and then suddenly falls from a steep cliff about 50 meters (150 feet) into a deep canyon. The main waterfall was divided into several strands by the river rock island, and the waves splashed up to 300 meters (1,000 feet), far from 65 kilometers (40 miles). When the new moon rises, the misty moonlight is reflected in the mist, and the scenery is very charming.
