1. Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe

The grandeur of Victoria Falls is among the most beautiful African sites to behold. One of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World, Victoria Falls is a towering, spectacular waterfall on the Zambezi River between Zambia and Zimbabwe. This may not be the highest or widest waterfall in the world, but it's the largest. The white-capped, thunderous waters plunge more than 355 feet into the First Gorge below. This also makes it a paradise for bungee jumping, whitewater rafting, and general thrill-seeking.
