Interesting Facts about The Victoria Falls

FALLING WATERS

The Victoria Falls (located approximately 17.925'S 25.855'E) are 1,708 meters wide, and when the river is in full flood is discribed as the largest curtain of falling water in the world. Substantially larger than North America's Niagra Falls, the Victoria Falls are only rivalled by the Iguaza Falls in South America, which are 2700m wide and 80m high, but are however divided into over 270 separate 'smaller' falls and cataracts. At 10.8 km wide, the Khone Falls in Laos are the world's widest, but this is broken by many islands. The highest are Angel Falls (locally known as Churun-Meru) in Venezuela.

SECTIONS OF THE FALLS

Islands along the crestline of the Falls, the largest being Cataract (or Boaruka) and Livingstone Islands, divide the curtain of water into sub-sections. At the most western end, the Devil's Cataract or Leaping Water (only 35 metres wide) is the lowest point of the river, then the Main Falls (approximately 460m wide), where the main flow of the river falls even during low water, and finally Horseshoe (about 530m wide), then Rainbow and Eastern Falls form the remaining and longest sections, often dry of water during low season

WATER VOLUME

The huge seasonal, and annual, variation in the rainfall of the region (most falling in the months from November to March), greatly affects the volume of water flowing over the Victoria Falls. There is also an appreciable delay in rainwater reaching the Falls as it works its way through the rivers vast upper catchments and upper reaches.

TWO COUNTRIES

Just below the Falls, the gorge forms an abyss between the countries with edges that drop away from the cliffs of both Zambia and Zimbabwe. Each successive sandstone gorge is numbered in sequence starting from the youngest (First Gorge to the Fifth Gorge), followed by Songwe Gorge and finally the official Batoka Gorge; it is common for all these gorges to be referred to collectively as The Gorge or Batoka Gorge. Batoka Gorge is more than 120 km (75 miles) long with vertical walls that are an average of 400 feet high (the Zambezi river water levels fluctuates up to 65 feet between the wet and dry season).
