The greatest spectacle in the area is the famous Victoria Falls, 1,700m wide and 108m high. An astounding 545 million liters of water flow down the falls during the floods. The magnificence of the falls can be imagined from the fact that at times the spray rises to a height of 400m and is visible even 70km away. Visitors are encouraged to visit during August to December, which is the best time to observe the falls.
