Fun Fact: The Victoria Falls are just over a mile wide and are made up of five different “falls.” Four of these are in Zimbabwe and one is in Zambia. They are known as The Devil’s Cataract, Main Falls, Rainbow Falls, and Horseshoe Falls in Zimbabwe, and the Eastern Cataract in Zambia.

The Devil’s Cataract name comes from the adjacent island in the river where the local tribes used to perform sacrificial ceremonies. When the missionaries arrived in the area, they referred to these ceremonies as “devilish” and hence the name was given to this cataract.

Main Falls is the largest waterfall and certainly the most majestic view of the falls. A wide curtain of water, it has a peak flow rate of 700,000 cubic meters per minute. The sheer volume over the height of the falls is so great that before getting anywhere near the ground, the water is buffeted by the strong rising winds and turned into mist.

Rainbow Falls is the highest point of all the falls. On a clear day a beautiful rainbow can normally be viewed at this point. A lunar rainbow may also be seen on a full moonlit night.

Horseshoe Falls, as the name suggests, is shaped like a horseshoe. This is the section with the least volume of water and will be the first to dry up, usually between October and November.

The Eastern Cataract is the second highest falls and is situated completely on the Zambian side of Victoria Falls, but you can have a stunning view of the falls from the Zimbabwean side at Danger Point.
