Views of the Victoria Falls.  Victoria Falls is one of two World Heritage Sites on the Zambezi River. Our local Victoria Falls office is ideal for managing your bookings to one of the most celebrated natural wonders of the world. Plan your visit on Victoria Falls Safari Network. The Zambezi River flows broad and placid to the brink of a 1700 mm wide basalt lip before taking a 100 metre headlong plunge into the thunderous, frothy chasm of the Batoka Gorge below. Its the world's largest sheet of falling water. Victoria Falls and Livingstone on either side of the Fall, provide easy access to the national parks in Zimbabwe, Botswana, Zambia or Namibia as well as South Africa, for regular safaris. The Mosi-oa-Tunya/Victoria Falls and associated eight steep sided gorges have been formed through the changing waterfall positions over a geological time scale. The gorges are an outstanding example of river capture and the erosive forces of the water still continue to sculpture the hard basalts. These gorges take a zigzag course of a distance of about 150 km along the Zambezi River below the falls. Seven previous waterfalls occupied the seven gorges below the present falls, and the Devil's Cataract in Zimbabwe is the starting point for cutting back to a new waterfall. In addition, an aerial view of the falls shows possible future waterfall positions. Upstream are a spectacular series of riverine islands formed during the ongoing geological and geomorphological processes. The property is characterized by banded basalt of ancient lava flow, Kalahari sandstones and chalcedony out of which stone artefacts of Homo habilis dating three million years, stone tools of the middle Stone Age and weapons, adornments and digging tools of the late Stone Age that indicate occupation by hunter-gatherers.
