Mighty Victoria Falls (Tokaleya Tonga: The Smoke That Thunders), a waterfall in southern Africa on the Zambezi River at the border of Zambia and Zimbabwe. It is one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the world. Victoria Falls is classified as the largest, based on its combined width of 1,708 meters and height of 108 meters, resulting in the world's largest body of falling water. Victoria Falls is roughly twice the height of North America's Niagara Falls and well over twice the width of its Horseshoe Falls. The most notable aspect of the area's vegetation though is the rainforest nurtured by the spray from the falls. Victoria Falls National Park contains abundant wildlife.
Matobo National Park is recognized as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. The park is situated in the magnificent Matobo Hills, a range of domes, spires and balancing rock formations. The majestic and rugged terrain here with the diversity of the vegetation supports a wide range of wildlife. Matobo meaning 'bald heads' was the name chosen for the area by the great Ndebele King, Mzilikazi. The Matobo area has great spiritual and cultural significance to the local people. Matobo National Park is also the site of the grave of Cecil John Rhodes. He is buried at the summit of Malindidzimu -' hill of benevolent spirits'. He referred to this hill as having a 'View of the World'.
