Victoria Falls is located along the Zambezi River in Zimbabwe and Zambia. The falls act as a border between the two African countries and are considered one of the most beautiful waterfalls in the world. The falls are 354 feet high, and the mist they create can be seen from as far as 12 miles away.

While the Zambezi River is often the fullest during the months of February and March, the larger spray plume that comes with the rainy season can make it harder for tourists to see the actual falls. In November, the opposite problem exists; drier weather can lower the river so that the water going over the falls splits into smaller columns instead of appearing as a full curtain.
