Victoria falls in Zimbabwe are as wide as 1700m and fall from 108m high which makes them the widest falls in the world. They are composed of 5 consecutive falls and cataracts: Horseshoe falls, Devil's cataract, Main falls, Rainbow falls and Eastern cataract. Victoria falls also called smoking waters by local people generate a cloud of spray which can go up to 500m high. The spectacle was magical in june as the flow of Zambezi river was maximum.
The following photos of Victoria falls were taken from the ground and from the air during a helicopter flight.
