The Biggest Waterfall in The World

Angel Falls, Venezuela is considered to be the biggest waterfall in the world. To be more precise, it is the tallest waterfall on Earth, with the height of some 980 meters and 47 drops.

Being so, it is a main attraction for the tourists who come to Venezuela. But visiting this waterfall is not so simple thing to do. The Angel Falls waterfall is situated in a jungle, so first there is a flight, and then there is a river trip. And aside all that, you can not be sure you will be able to see the waterfall – in fact, you can only see it if the weather is clear.

The second famous waterfall is Victoria Falls. It was named after Queen Victoria, by David Livingstone, an explorer from Scotland, but the name “Mosi-oa-Tunya” is also accepted. Unlike Angel Falls, Victoria Falls are more accessible and easier for physical approach, so it is no wonder that there are so many tourists and visitors.

During the late 1990s, the number of visitors was about 290,000 annually. According to estimation for the following decade, the number was to reach a million. It is quite logical, because people do not have to bother too much to reach the falls – they can arrive by train or bus. The trip to Victoria Falls is not too expensive, so it is one more reason for such numerous visits.

The amazing falls are not the only natural beauty and attraction here. Its wildlife is equally amazing. There are elephants, giraffes, buffaloes, zebras, baboons etc. Crocodiles are commonly seen as well. Bird species are numerous, and so as fish.

If you want to experience an adventure, then you should definitely go visit one of these waterfalls. There are many and many returning visitors, who are enchanted by these natural wonders.
