Cataratas Victoria-- Zimbabwe

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

Las cataratas Victoria, constituyen un salto de agua del río Zambeze situado en la frontera de Zambia y Zimbabue. Están ubicadas en el distrito de Livingstone, en la Provincia del Sur, de Zambia y en el distrito de Hwange, en la región de Mashonalandia Occidental, de Zimbabue. Sobre ellas se encuentra el puente de las Cataratas Victoria, un antiguo arco de acero terminado en 1905.

Miden aproximadamente 1,7 km de ancho y 108 m de alto. Se consideran un espectáculo extraordinario debido al estrecho y raro abismo en que el agua cae.

David Livingstone, el explorador escocés, visitó la cascada en 1855 y las bautizó con el nombre de la reina Victoria, aunque son conocidas localmente como Mosi-oa-Tunya, el humo que truena. La cascada forma parte de dos parques nacionales, Parque Nacional de Mosi-oa-Tunya en Zambia y el Parque Nacional de las Cataratas Victoria en Zimbabue, y son una de las mayores atracciones turísticas del África austral. Han sido declaradas Patrimonio de la Humanidad por la Unesco, en el año 1989. Abarcando el área protegida una extensión de 8.780 ha.
