Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe
Derives its name from the adjacent island where local tribesmen performed sacrificial ceremonies during the time of the early missionaries. These acts were referred to as "devilish". Hence the name of the western-most cataract over which water cascades 70m.
Main Falls, Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe
This is the largest of the waterfalls over which this massive volume of water is converted to mist by strong rising winds before it hits the floor of the gorge 93m below.
Shaped like a horseshoe this 95m waterfall is the first to stop flowing as the dry season takes hold of the Zambezi between October and November.
These are the highest waterfalls at 108m opposite the rainforest in Zimbabwe. The name is derived from the rainbows that take shape when the Zambezi flows at its best between February and June. This is the spot to capture lunar rainbows on a full moon.
This waterfall in Zambia is the second highest at 101m and reduces to a very light flow in the dry season. Danger Point within Zimbabwe's rainforest offers tremendous views at ground level.
