Zimbabwe is the 28th largest country in Africa with a size of 390,580km2. It is similarly ranked 24th in Africa in terms of population with a grand total of 13,014,000. This is merely 1.22% of the whole population of Africa showing how little the country is compared to the continent. Although the country has been established since the 11th century Zimbabwe did not gain independence until the 1900’s. One of 48 landlocked countries worldwide it is surrounded by South Africa, Botswana, Zambia, Namibia and Mozambique. Although the capital city is Harare the main attraction when we talk to tourists is always the Victoria Falls.
While Victoria Falls is neither the largest or tallest waterfall it is supposedly the ‘biggest’ waterfall on planet earth at a width of 1,708 metres (5,604 ft) and height of 108 metres (354 ft). David Livingstone is accredited with being the European to ever set sight on this natural beauty. However, no Victoria fall has become one of the main attractions in Africa.
The video below is an excellent example of the natural beauty that is the Victoria Falls. However, the hot temperature and the excellent culture make it a place which is worth visiting and for ages to enjoy.
