Victoria Falls, between Zambia and Zimbabwe
|The world's largest waterfall, Victoria Falls is nearly 300 feet (90 meters) high and 5,500 feet (1,700 meters) wide. Traditionally named "The Smoke that Thunders," the waterfall creates what appears to be smoke but is actually billowing water vapor. The dark brown in this image indicates the path of water flowing over layers of volcanic rock.
