V is for Victoria Falls #atozchallenge


The beautiful Victoria Falls are one of the seven natural wonders of the world consisting of a mile long curtain of falling water.  It lies on the border of The Democratic Republic of Congo (formerly Zaire) and Zimbabwe.  

It's on my ever growing bucket list to visit this fabulous sight.








This is a gigantic blog hop so click here to see what other bloggers are discussing for this letter. Have fun.

    1. How about a trip to SA and then a quick hopover to Zimbabwe?

  7. I'd like to see them someday too... mostly to photograph them. When I went to Niagra Falls I was somewhat disappointed, but I doubt Victoria would have the same effect.

    1. I loved Niagra Falls. I preferred the Canadian side over the US.

    1. Pics are always good. You could have someone splash water on you as you gaze into them, imagining you are there.

    1. I wonder where we'll stand to look at it. Or perhaps we'll take a helicopter tour.

  11. I've always wanted to go there. My parents went a few years ago and I was insanely jealous.

  13. Wow! I'm not sure what else to say besides that. They're stunning! Now I want to see them, too!

    1. So many people put it on their list. I think we should have a bucket list convention there.

  16. I saw Victoria Falls from the Zambia and Zimbabwe sides and it is huge and so powerful. My favorite quote about Victoria Falls came from our guide in Zimbabwe who was quoting David Livingstone: "scenes so lovely must have been gazed upon by angels in their flight ” Get there soon if you can Nana-Victoria Falls is truly magnificent.

    1. I like that quote. I'm even amazed that I know who David Livingstone is from my history books.

  18. Visiting from A/Z; beautiful pictures of Victoria Falls; loved the one with the rainbow in it! I hope you do get to see it sometime! I'd love to see it in person, but I'm thinking I probably won't get there, but absolutely gorgeous!

    We're in the home stretch for the challenge being completed; hope you enjoyed participating in it.

  19. Oh that's amazing! What a sight that would be in person! I've only seen small falls and even those are amazing to see :)

    Happy A to Z-ing!

    1. I love a water fall. One of the highest in West Africa sits in my little country, and I have yet to go see it. Didnt' stop me from putting it into one of my books, though.
