10. Victoria Falls
Is a waterfall in southern Africa on the Zambezi River at the border of Zambia and Zimbabwe.
David Livingstone, the Scottish missionary and explorer, is believed to have been the first European to view Victoria Falls on 16 November 1855 from what is now known as Livingstone Island, one of two land masses in the middle of the river, immediately upstream from the falls on the Zambian side. Livingstone named his "discovery" in honour of Queen Victoria, but the indigenous name, Mosi-oa-Tunya — literally "the cloud that thunders" — is also well known. The World Heritage List recognizes both names.
