Victoria Falls is one of Africa’s most popular tourist attractions and a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Iguazu waterfall

One of the falls on the border of two countries is Iguazu Falls. Iguazu Falls is located on the border line between Brazil and Argentina. It is the result of an erupting volcano leaving a large crack on the surface of the Earth. Iguazu is about 285 feet high or 87m but extremely impressive for those who have been here because it has 275 falls, forming a horseshoe and extending 8858 feet about 2700m.

Kaieteur waterfall

Kaieteur waterfall is the 123th tallest (226m) in the world but it ranks 19th in terms of water volume. This beautiful waterfall is the largest waterfall on the Potaro River in Guyana’s Kaietuer National Park. Kaieteur is 4 times taller than Niagara Falls and this is also the reason for creating the breathtakingly majestic scenery of this remote waterfall.

Niagara Falls

Niagara Falls in the United States is widely known as a majestic and famous waterfall because it extends from Canada to the United States. Niagara is made up of two parts: Horseshoe Falls on the Canadian side and the American waterfall on the American side. They are separated from an island. If you admire Niagara Falls from Canada, you will find it more beautiful and vast because Horseshoe waterfall is about 2600 feet wide while the American waterfall is only 1060 feet wide.

Angel Falls

Owning an impressive height of 1070m, Angel is the highest waterfall in the world, and because of this height, the water droplets evaporated before reaching the bottom of the lake below. When you stand up from the bottom, you will not know where the water from the waterfall comes from. Unlike other waterfalls, Angel’s water does not come from melting glaciers or rivers and streams upstream, it comes from rainfall pouring down from giant tropical clouds.
